Dear Experts , i am a cisa holder and around 5 years of IT Audit experience, I want to take the CISSP exam, my question is how difficult it is comparing to CISA and is there any similarities.
Thanx in advance

    There is some overlap between the two certs but the CISSP is a bigger beast.

    I took the CISSP in 2015 and am currently studying for CISA so I can say I do see some overlap, but CISSP contained a lot more information.

    CISA is very focused on risk and risk management...one of the 8 domains for the CISSP covers risk management, and the remaining domains require technical knowledge.
