Why Get a CISA Certification?

ISACA® Certified Information Systems Auditor® (CISA®) is world-renowned as the standard of achievement for those who audit, control, monitor and assess an organization’s information technology and business systems.

CISA certification shows internal and external stakeholders, peers, employers and regulators that you are an expert in IS/IT auditing, control and security, including:

  • The process of auditing information systems
  • Governance and management of IT
  • Information systems acquisition, development and implementation
  • Information systems operations and business resilience
  • Protection of information assets

CISA is one of the top tech credentials requested in job postings nationwide. It is also one of the baseline IT security certifications for DoD 8570, as required for employment in a federal government or contractor role.

Who Should Take CISA Training?

CISA is designed for experienced information systems and information technology professionals involved in auditing, controlling, monitoring and assessing an organization’s information technology and business systems. It is appropriate for:

  • Entry to mid-level IT professionals
  • IT and internal auditors
  • Those who are currently in or pursuing roles that often ask for CISA certification, such as Compliance Analyst/Program Manager, Risk Analyst/Program Manager, Data Protection Manager, Security Officer/Security Manager, or IT Consultant

In addition to passing the exam, CISA certification requires a minimum of five years of professional information systems auditing, control or security work experience (or a combination of education, work experience and other credentials). 

However, you do not need to meet the experience requirements before taking the exam. Once you pass the CISA exam, you have five years to meet the experience requirements and apply for CISA certification.
