CISA revoked status

Dear Fellows:

My CISA designation is revoked due to non compliance with CPE policy. I made a mistake and even though I have earned the CPE, never bothered to report them to ISACA since 2010. I was under a wrong impression that ISACA can temporarily suspend CISA designation and will not revoke it. in fact they forwarded me some emails indicating about the status but I was so occupied with my professional duties that hardly I check my personal emails. lately I found about those emails and when I contacted ISACA, they told me about revocation. Initially ISACA representative told me that I have to retake and re pass the exam but when I explained her and asked about appeal policy, she informed me because I did not submit the CPE for 2012-2016, keeping in view the timeframe, I am required to retake the exam. however, in the same email she told me that I can contact the board along-with letter and CPE earned evidences.

I need some advice how to appeal and what stance should I take so that my CISA designation is restored. any member with CISA revoked status may contribute with his or her experience. I would really appreciate it.

    1st, have you always keep up with your dues? $$$

    If no, my guess is your out of luck!
    If yes, continue...

    & if you actually did all the CPE's, prepare a nice letter with all the information & start an appeal
    I would also go and re-read the current CISA application!
    that said, going 4 years without summit ANY CPE's might be a tough sell!

    as for how to appeal, after writing the letter, including all your supporting 4 years of CPE documentation to

    certification at isaca dot org

    or print, sign & actually snail mail it! (address on the bottom of the CISA application)
    That might be more professional and you MIGHT get a better result!

    if you e-mail they will send you an auto-reply they got your message
    Keep in mind they are now processing CISA & CISM applications so if you sent it in today your actual real response might take be 2+ months!

    Lastly, not to throw salt into this wound but part of being a CISA is that you actually follow this type of stuff (i.e. summit your CPE's!)

    Good luck!

    I have multiple certs that require CPEs to keep current. I set reminders both at work and on my phone to trigger at 9 months out, 6 months out, three months out and one month out as reminders. Part of being a professional is keeping up with continuing requirements. Figure out where your weak points are and use technology to overcome them.

    I let my CISSP lapse years ago out of indifference and retook the exam, passed and got over my feelings of security shame and self-loathing.

    Its a few bucks and some time in the testing center.

    Thanks for your recommendations coffeisgood ... I know I was irresponsible and somewhat careless ... Anyways, lets see what will happen next. What I believe, if CISA has appeal policy and in fact they can reconsider and reinstate the status, I have every chance to be reinstated. Finger crossed

    Hi anyone here experienced the same? Were you able to get reinstatement through appeal or you retook the exam? I was preoccupied with professional duties while getting my life back after tragedies and just happened to revisit my email. Appreciate your help!! :)

    Have you actually tried appealing to the certification vendor? 
  • geeemceegeeemcee Member Posts: 2 ■□□□□□□□□□
    I actually haven’t. Are they strict with the 3-year cycle rule of 120 CPE? I have filed mine for two years but lacks after the 3rd. I completed the 120 during the middle of the 4th year. Would it be possible to have it appealed? What could be the possible way? Thank you very much!

    Yes it is possible to have it appealed. The first step is to contact ISACA and explain your situation. Let us know how it goes.
