CERTIFIED INFORMATION SYSTEMS AUDITOR
Retaining CISAs Benefits Your Organization
For more than 25 years, organizations have turned to professionals who have earned a CISA designation. CISAs have the proven ability to perform reviews in accordance with globally accepted standards and guidelines to ensure that the organization’s information technology and business systems are adequately controlled, monitored and assessed.
CERTIFIED INFORMATION SECURITY MANAGER
The CISM designation focuses on the management of information security. The CISM certification ensures that information security professionals, and specifically information security managers, have the experience and knowledge necessary to provide effective management and consulting services. CISM defines the core competencies and international performance standards that those who have information security management responsibilities are expected to master.
CISA and CISM Recognized Under DoD Directive 8570.1
More and more organizations are recognizing the value of certifications like CISA and CISM and recommending or requiring that their employees be certified. In August 2004, the US Department of Defense (DoD) put into effect Directive 8570.1, which mandates that information security personnel be certified with a commercial accreditation approved by the DoD. CISA and CISM are both identified as approved accreditations, signifying the DoD’s confidence in ISACA’s credentials.
CISA and CISM Exams in June and December
The CISA and CISM exams are offered twice every year, in June and December, in more than 70 testing centers in the US and more than 150 sites internationally. To meet the needs of large enterprises, ISACA is also able to establish new exam centers virtually anywhere in the world where there is an interest.
