The Certified Information Systems Auditor (CISA) is a global certification issued by Information System Security Certification Consortium (ISC)2 that proves the efficiency of an IT auditor’s knowledge and skills in filtering security vulnerabilities and looking after IT controls in an enterprise environment. The CISA certification is made for IT auditors, consultants, security professionals, and audit managers.
Interested CISA candidates must hold a minimum of five years of professional experience in information systems auditing, control, or security. You can get a waiver period of a maximum of 3 years. Another way is to have a maximum of one year of Information Systems OR one-year non-IS auditing experience. A Master’s degree in information security or information technology from a recognized university can be substituted for one year of experience.
