The Department of Defense Directive 8570 requires anyone seeking a government job to hold specific certifications before they can be hired in a position related to information systems/security. The CISA fulfills the DoD 8570’s IAT Level III and CSSP Auditor requirements.
There are five domains of job practice areas that CISA candidates are examined on. They are as follows: The Process of Auditing Information Systems (21% of the exam), Governance & Management of IT (16% of the exam), Information Systems Acquisition, Development & Implementation (18% of the exam), Information Systems Operations, Maintenance & Service Management (20% of the exam), and Protection of Information Assets (25% of the exam).

Due to ISACA’s emphasis on candidates possessing a breadth of work experience and professional accomplishment, the CISA (Certified Information Systems Auditor) has become the IS industry’s preferred certification program around the world. The CISA is specialized for high standards of IS auditing, while other certifications—such as the CIA (Certified Internal Auditor)—are more generalized.
Waivers for work experience can be acquired in a number of circumstances, with a maximum of up to three years waived. For example, completing 60 to 120 university semester credit hours, equivalent to acquiring a 2-year or 4-year degree, can be substituted for 1 or 2 years of work experience, respectively. A max of 1 year of information systems experience or 1 year or non-IS auditing experience can also be substituted for 1 year of work experience. Click here for more detailed waiver information.
As with other ISACA certifications, the CISA will remain valid as long as holders participate in their continuing education program and pay an annual maintenance fee. 20 CPE credit hours must be logged and verified annually in order for the certification to remain active.
