ISACA is an international professional association that is focused on IT policy making and governance. As a Premium Partner of ISACA, Lumify Work delivers training to help Information Security professionals in Australia, New Zealand and the Philippines gain CISA, CISM, CRISC, COBIT, and other ISACA certifications.
In particular, the CISM certification has gotten a reputation for being the most sought-after information security manager certification. Cyber and information security specialists with this certification can validate their expertise and tap into lucrative consultancy or employment opportunities. This certification is suited for those who hold roles and job titles like IS/IT Auditor, Security Professional, IS/IT Consultant, Non-IT Auditor or IS/IT Audit Manager.
Similarly, the other ISACA certifications offer a way to validate one's expertise and open up opportunities for information security managers.
The COBIT certification is suited for IT professionals who work in assurance, security, risk, and privacy or compliance. Business leaders who oversee the governance and management of information and IT systems - like IT Department Managers or IT Quality Managers - are also suited to work towards this certification.
For those who want to confirm that they have the knowledge and experience required to develop and manage an enterprise information security (infosec) program, there is the Certified Information Security Manager (CISM) certification.
IT professionals who support organisations in understanding business risk and possess the technical understanding needed to implement information security procedures and controls can take the CRISC certification.
Certification renewal requires earning and reporting continuing professional education (CPE), compliance with ISACA's code of ethics, ability to abide by the association's auditing standards, as well as an annual maintenance fee. The rationale behind these requirements is to ensure that all CISAs maintain an adequate level of current knowledge and proficiency in the field of information systems auditing, control and security.
