CISA certification is...
Certified Information Systems Auditor (CISA) is an information security auditor certification granted by Information Systems Audit and Control Association, also known as ISACA.
Evidence of your commitment to an information systems auditor career. It demonstrates your fundamental knowledge of senior information systems management and its associated processes to potential employers.
-What are the benefits of CISA certification?
In today's fast evolving times, technological solutions by itself cannot protect an organizations important information assets. So, employers demand qualified information systems staff give their organizations a leading edge by providing the highest standard of information systems security for their customers, employees, stakeholders and organizational information assets.
The CISA Certification is an internationally recognized certification for information security professionals. CISA Certification is offered by the Information Systems Audit and Control Association, also known as ISACA. CISA certification is both an objective measure of excellence and a globally recognized standard of achievement.
Benefits of the CISA Certification for Professionals:
- Indicates a working knowledge of information systems
- Commitment to profession
- Provides a career distinction, with enhanced credibility and marketability
- Has exclusive benefits as an ISACA member, including valuable resources such as peer networking and idea exchange
- Certified Information Systems Auditor (CISA) earn more than their non-certified counterparts, according to the Global Information Systems Workforce Study
- Satisfies the government and organization requirements for information security certification mandates
-What are the CISA certification requirements?
ISACA expects minimum five years of work experience related to information systems auditing, control or security work experience (as described in the CISA job practice areas).
You must have this work experience in the last 10 years when you applied for the CISA certification or in the last five years when you passed the CISA certification exam. Once you passed the CISA exam, you must apply for CISA certification within 5 years. Otherwise, you have to resit for the CISA exam.
There are substitutions and waivers for CISA work experience to a maximum of 3 years. These are as following:
- A maximum of 1 year of information systems experience OR 1 year of non-IS auditing experience can be substituted for 1 year of experience.
- 60 to 120 completed university semester credit hours (the equivalent of an 2-year or 4-year degree) not limited by the 10-year preceding restriction, can be substituted for 1 or 2 years, respectively, of experience.
- A bachelor's or master's degree from a university that enforces the ISACA-sponsored Model Curricula can be substituted for 1 year of experience. This option cannot be used if 3 years of experience substitution and educational waiver have already been claimed.
- A master's degree in information security or information technology from an accredited university can be substituted for 1 year of experience.
Another exception is for university instructors. 2 years as a full-time university instructor in a related field (e.g., computer science, accounting, information systems auditing) can be substituted for 1 year of experience.
In any case, a CISA certification candidate can waive at most 2 years of work experience. If you satisfy the CISA work experience requirements and if you passed the CISA exam successfully, you can apply for the CISA certification.
-Why do I need CISA Certification?
Small size to Fortune 500 organizations, all employers look qualified information systems personnel to fulfill their vacancies. Information systems management and security is one of the top critical areas that every organization weighs in order to prevent any security breaches.
ISACA assesses the work experience, knowledge and practical experience of an information security professional before granting CISA certification. This makes employers to filter the qualified candidates for their information systems management vacancies. Therefore, CISA certified professionals secure information security positions faster and with a better salary.
Earning CISA certificate will not show only your work and domain experience but also your dedication to information systems management career.

b. Earn 120 CISA CPE credits in three-year period. While the minimum CPE credits you must earn is 20 CPEs for each year, you must have completed 120 CISA CPE credits by the end of three-year CISA renewal period.
