CISA®

CISA<sup><small>®</small></sup> a passport to success

The Certified Information Systems AuditorTM (CISA®) is ISACA®'s cornerstone certification. The CISA® certification has been earned by more than 55,000 professionals since inception and is for the IS audit, control, assurance and/or security professionals who wish to set themselves apart from their peers. Since 1978, the CISA® certification has been renowned as the globally recognised achievement for those who control, monitor and assess an organisation's information technology and business systems.
More information on CISA® certification.

The CISA® exam is offered twice yearly in June and December and both diets will be offered in Edinburgh.

Study guides and sample question papers are available from the ISACA® bookstore.

CISA® Exam Preparation

As in previous years the Chapter intends to provide a pre-exam training day which will combine a mock exam with the opportunity for some focussed exam-oriented discussion of key areas of interest and/or difficulty. In the past this has typically centered around more technical areas such as private and public key encryption, the ISO seven layer model and communications concepts generally. In principal we can cover any topics that students wish covered and we will ask for suggestions and input ahead of time.

In addition we will consider any request for additional evening instruction from individuals or companies. This is something we have provided previously but it is dependent on sufficient numbers and a sustained commitment from all involved and there would need to be a charge for this service that was proportional to the frequency of sessions and the time given.

It would be helpful if all candidates who wish to attend the training day or are interested in the possibility of additional support for their studies contact Steve Harrison, the CISA® co-ordinator. If you know of any candidates who will be sitting the exam can you please make them aware of this opportunity and encourage them to participate.

New CISA Online Review Course
