FAQ

Frequently asked questions

Why is certification important to an IT risk and control career?
IT risk and control professionals often seek certification to hone their skills and prove their legitimacy among peers. Professional development is a key motivator for CRISC candidates who wish to implement effective and risk-based information system controls for their organizations.
What qualifies as IT risk and control experience?
ISACA states that work experience must be related to at least two of the four domains to qualify for the certification. At least one of these domains must be either domain 1 or domain 2. Read our article to learn more about the CRISC experience requirements.
How is the CRISC certification different from other comparable security certifications?
The CRISC is for IT professionals — specifically individuals that perform risk management and implement internal controls. The closest certification to the CRISC is probably IIA’s CRMA certification, which is more oriented towards internal auditors, specifically those assessing risk management processes.
How does the CRISC examination process work?
The CRISC exam is a 150 question, multiple choice test that must be completed in a timeframe of four hours. It is scored on a scale of 200 to 800, with 450 points being the minimum passing score. Click here for more exam information.
How long is the CRISC certification valid after you pass the test, and what are the renewal requirements?
Like other ISACA certifications, the CRISC is valid for three years after you pass the exam. However, certain terms must be met. An annual maintenance fee must be paid, and CRISC holders must participate in ISACA’s CPE (Continuing Professional Education) program, reporting 20 CPE hours annually and 120 CPE hours across the three-year period. For more renewal information, read our article on CRISC renewal requirements.

The instructor was able to take material that prior to the class had made no sense, and explained it in real world scenarios that were able to be understood.

I really appreciate that our instructor was extremely knowledgeable and was able to provide the information in a way that it could be understood. He also provided valuable test-taking strategies that I know not only helped me with this exam, but will help in all exams I take in the future.

The course was extremely helpful and provided exactly what we needed to know in order to successfully navigate the exam. Without this I am not confident I would have passed.
