Is your organization's critical information protected? ...Really?
Without comprehensive security plans, policies, and procedures, your organization's information security could be missing something. And that's all it takes for the worst to happen.
As a Certified Information Systems Auditor (CISA), you'll perform a business-critical function -- assess your organization's IT and business systems to ensure they are monitored, controlled, and protected.
These are valuable skills... and CISA is a valuable certification
There is rapidly growing demand for skilled CISAs.
CISA is on the level of CISSP and CCIE in prestige and in the way it distinguishes you from your peers. It's globally recognized within the IT industry and beyond. It's used by the US Department of Defense and others as a minimum requirement for many high-end security positions. And studies have found that just having the CISA credential can increase your salary.*
Gain knowledge in 6 critical Information Security areas

Instructor Michael Shannon walks you through the 6 major knowledge areas every CISA must be proficient in:

Area 1: The Information System Audit Process
Area 2: Information Technology Governance
Area 3: Systems and Infrastructure Life Cycle Management
Area 4: IT Service Delivery and support
Area 5: Protection of Information Assets
Area 6: Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery
