CISA Bootcamp

Five Day Certified Information Systems Auditor (CISA) – BOOTCAMP

Information technology (IT) audit pertains to the evaluation of information technology to assess compliance with an organization’s policies and processes. An IT audit wholly or partially evaluates automated information processing systems, related non-automated processes and their interfaces for compliance.

The Certified Information Systems Auditor certificate is perhaps the most prestigious certification for IT auditors.  This CISA examination preparation course is an intense 5-day extensive review of CISA examination requirements and preparation for the CISA examination. It imparts the learner with strategies, techniques, and tips for taking and passing the examination.

Attendees also get value beyond passing the examination in that the training delves into IT audit knowledge and its application to internal control, including technology life cycle management, cybersecurity, and business continuity.
