This book is designed for anyone interested in straightforward, honest guidance on passing the Certified Information Systems Auditor (CISA) exam.
The CISA certification is one of the hottest entry-level auditor credentials on the market. It is a trend worldwide for various organizations to upgrade security and prove the existence of strong internal controls.
You may have heard of a few of these:
International Basel III accord for risk management in banking.
COSO, which includes several variations by country. The US version deals with Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX) for public corporations with equivalent controls offered in other stock exchanges worldwide.
Safe Harbor International Information Privacy Protection.
US Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA).
Payment Card Industry (PCI) standards for credit card processing.
Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA).
These are just a few of more than 30 high-profile regulations that demand audited proof of internal controls. Frankly, they present many opportunities for a CISA. This may be the opportunity that you have been looking for, especially if you come from a background of finance or technology.
One of the biggest problems facing regulatory compliance reporting is individuals running testing applications without understanding all the other simultaneous objectives still required. Running software will never make a person a competent auditor.
Far too many dependencies exist outside of the testing application. To address this problem, the skeptical auditor mentality is coupled with disciplined written procedures, testing plans, factual reporting of failures even if they are fixed, and objective independence in scope and decisions, which are far more important than automated test results alone.
