Course Information

CISA Certified Information Systems Auditor Overview

Certified Information Security Auditor (CISA) is a globally acknowledged certification, which builds upon the previous experience of IS professionals, to produce valuable employees who possess exceptional knowledge of Information Systems Auditing, Control, and Security.

During this CISA training course, delegates will be exposed to the Five Domains of Information Security Auditing. These domains comprise the foundations of CISA and it is imperative that delegates grasp a complete understanding of these aspects in order to pass the CISA exam and use their certification within the workplace. Within each of these domains exists multiple topics, which when combined, provide a comprehensive overview of the domain of focus. Due to the breadth of information imparted with each topic over a period of just four days, this course is considered intensive and candidates must study hard to obtain the certification. The five domains are as follows:

  • The Process of Auditing Information Systems
  • Governance & Management of IT
  • Information Systems Acquisition, Development, and Implementation
  • Information Systems Operations, Maintenance, and Support
  • Protection of Information Assets

This intensive training course is delivered by exceptional, experienced CISA trainers, over the course of just four days. The Knowledge Academy CISA instructors deliver engaging sessions, allowing candidates to interact and discuss the content. The information provided, if studied meticulously and efficiently, will allow candidates to pass their CISA exam. Our trainers are available to assist trainees with any issues they may have prior, during, and after the course.

This training course is not suitable for beginners. It is required that delegates possess at least five years of exposure in the field of Information Systems Auditing. With this information in mind, it is expected that CISA qualified candidates have an outstanding level of professional experience, commitment, and extensive knowledge of IS Auditing. Thus, a CISA qualification is likely to open many doors and propel certified individuals into a high ranking position within the enterprise.
