Programme Overview

Today’s complex business and technology environment continues to challenge enterprises seeking to protect and control IT and business systems. In addition, there is an ever-increasing number of government regulations and oversight that require stronger internal control and disclosures. The technical skills, knowledge and practices that ISACA’s Certified Information Systems Auditor (CISA®) program promotes and evaluates are the building blocks to meeting these challenges.

With the CISA® designation comes many professional and personal benefits, including:
– Worldwide recognition for professional experience
– Enhanced knowledge and skills
– Career advancement

Because the CISA program certifies individuals who demonstrate proficiency in today’s most sought-after skills, employers prefer to hire and retain those who achieve and maintain the designation. Whether looking to enhance on-the-job performance or secure a promotion or new position, becoming a CISA sets one apart from other candidates and provides a competitive advantage.

Earning the CISA designation distinguishes individuals as qualified IS audit, control and security professionals. CISAs have the proven ability to perform reviews in accordance with globally accepted standards and guidelines to ensure that an enterprise’s IT and business systems are adequately controlled, monitored and assessed.

The CISA designation ensures employers that their staff have met the current education and experience criteria necessary for successful on-the-job performance.


CISA exam questions are developed and maintained carefully to ensure that they accurately test an individual’s proficiency in IS audit, control, assurance or security practices.
