Audit des systèmes d’information, certification CISA

Gouvernance, sécurité, audit

Introduction

La certification CISA (Certified Information Systems Auditor) est reconnue dans le monde entier comme la référence pour les professionnels de l'audit, du contrôle et de la supervision des systèmes des technologies de l'information. Le programme est mis en place par l'ISACA - Information Systems Audit and Control Association.
Cette certification couvre tous les domaines de l'audit des systèmes d’information, des aspects organisationnels aux aspects les plus techniques. Elle sanctionne à la fois :
  • la réussite de l'examen CISA (150 questions à choix multiple en 4 heures (données 2020)). Cet examen peut être passé par des candidats sans ou avec peu d'expérience.
  • et la validation de 5 années d'expérience dans le domaine. Cette validation se fait sur la base d'un dossier à envoyer à l'ISACA. Le candidat a 5 ans à compter de la réussite de l'examen pour faire une demande de certification d'expérience.
L'examen de certification peut se faire à l'ISEIG, pratiquement tous les jeudis.
La matière couverte par le CISA est continuellement actualisée pour répondre aux exigences en constante évolution. Elle est structurée dans les 5 domaines suivants :
  • processus d'audit des systèmes d'information
  • gouvernance et gestion des systèmes d'information
  • acquisition, conception et implantation des systèmes d'information
  • exploitation, entretien et soutien des systèmes d'information
  • protection des actifs informationnels
Cette formation permet :
  • d'acquérir, compléter et systématiser ses connaissances méthodologiques dans le domaine de l'audit, du contrôle et de la sécurité des systèmes d'information
  • de se préparer à la certification internationale CISA - Certified Information Systems Auditor.
Cette formation est pour vous si :
