The Computer Information Systems Auditor (CISA) Certification

The Computer Information Systems Auditor (CISA) Certification

I recently sat for the Certified Information Systems Auditor (CISA) certification exam in December of 2007. We were told that the results from the exam will take about 8 weeks to come back to let us know if you have pass it or not.


This CISA certification is extremely popular with over 30,000 certified security professional from all over the world. The CISA certification exam is offered once per year at multiple testing locations worldwide and allows those who need to display knowledge of IT auditing, security, and control to set them at a higher level in the industry.

The CISA certification test your knowledge of the six core competencies:

1. The IS Audit Process
2. Protection of Information Assets
3. IT Governance
4. Systems and Infrastructure Life Cycle Management
5. IT Service Delivery and Support
6. Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery

The exam is four hours long consisting of 200 multiple-choice questions. A person aiming to obtain the CISA certification must show five years of verifiable experience in IS auditing, control or security is required, agree to the ISACA code of ethics and agree to adhere to the Information Systems Auditing Standards as adopted by ISACA.

The cost of taking the exam for ISCA members ranges from $300 to 385 depending upon when you register and if you do so online and $420 to 505 for non-members.

I will let you know status once my results are in…

It feels a lot longer than 8 weeks but that is about the right time line. Good Luck

Do you guys know that, there is a growing demand for professionals having skills in Information System audit, security and control. I was interested in getting an excellent job opportunity in the IS audit field, and this site helped me to meet some important requirements. They made me aware that passing the CISA exam is the primary requirement and having at least 5 years of experience as an Information System auditor. I am very thanking full to them. cisa certification

Hi! Are you having problems finding right exam guide for cisa certification? I was having such problems few days ago. And I consulted with this site because their CISA certification program requires you to complete the Continuing Professional Education (CPE) Policy so that you can maintain a sufficient level of knowledge and expertise in the Information Systems audit, control and security field. This is proved to be really helpful to me. Thanks. . cisa
