CISA

Overview

Certified Information Systems Auditor (CISA) is a globally acknowledged certification, which builds upon the previous experience of IS professionals, to produce valuable employees who possess exceptional knowledge of Information Systems Auditing, Control, and Security.

During this CISA training course, delegates will be exposed to the Five Domains of Information Security Auditing. These domains comprise the foundations of CISA and it is imperative that delegates grasp a complete understanding of these aspects in order to pass the CISA exam and use their certification within the workplace. Within each of these domains exists multiple topics, which when combined, provide a comprehensive overview of the domain of focus. Due to the breadth of information imparted with each topic over a period of just four days, this course is considered intensive and candidates must study hard to obtain the certification.

The five domains are as follows:

  1. The Process of Auditing Information Systems
  2. Governance & Management of IT
  3. Information Systems Acquisition, Development, and Implementation
  4. Information Systems Operations, Maintenance, and Support
  5. Protection of Information Assets

The CISA essential for professionals dealing with controlling, monitoring, and assessing an organisation’s information technology and business systems. This includes:

  • IS/IT auditors/consultants
  • IT compliance managers
  • Chief Compliance Officers
  • Chief risk & privacy officers
  • Security heads/directors
  • Security managers/architects

The above list is a suggestion only; individuals may wish to attend based on their own career aspirations, personal goals or objectives. Delegates may take as few or as many Intermediate qualifications as they require, and to suit their needs.

Delegates wishing to take the official ISACA Certified Information Systems Auditor (CISA) exam will need to book this directly with ISACA.
