Why to CISA?

Yesturday i received a letter from ISACA. They reminded me that I passed CISA (Certified Information System Auditor) exam in 2005. And the deadline for certification is in December 2010. Why didn't I complete certification process? Well the answer is - I don't need the certificate right now. It is enough for the employeer to know that I have passed the CISA exam.


So why do we need this certification at all? Why do we need to pass CISA exam?
As for me this exam helped me to receive the offers from two of Big4 companies. Only the fact that i passed CISA exam. Without certification. May be it was just exception from the rule but this is not the main thing.

Above all CISA gives us the opportunity to show our level of competence. It means that your knowledge comply with general requirments that are set by ISACA.

What are these requirements?
  • general knowledge of audit process;
  • general knowledge of risk assessment process;
  • general knowledge of information technology matters;
  • "right" common sense. (I mean the point of view of ISACA association by that)
So what we have here? General knowledge + common sense will help us to solve most IT Audit problems. :)

You still have the chance to join our "right" common sense club. Next exam date is 8 December. And the final deadline registration date is 26 September.

If you have any question regarding CISA exam, please leave comments. We could share our experience and discuss it.
