CISA (Certified Information Systems Auditor)

Systems and IT auditors adhere to the same ethical and independence criteria as financial auditors, except that their emphasis is on the governance of IT systems and processes. With audits and projects ranging from business continuity to development processes to information security, these practitioners assist their organizations with a wide range of topics.

To demonstrate one’s competence to prospective employers, a candidate aspiring to be an IT auditor should obtain the internationally recognized certification called CISA (Certified Information Systems Auditor). Gaining this certification will provide the IT audit candidate with a strong systems infrastructure and audit foundation.
