    I have never heard of it.  For those interested, here is the link.  After a quick glance, it looks like a stepping stone to the CISA.  Price for the online class isn't too spendy but a bit out of my current, personal training budget.

    After taking a peek at the link, it does resemble CISA with a bit of hands on and cloud (at least IMHO).

    Does it expire? Or you have to maintain it by certain number of CPEs?

    Just passed today. Was bored. Spent one day to prepare. If you are already have a CISA, doth waste your time. I'm not sure what is the value of this certificate.

    I took the test today using the book and self paced study materials and none of the questions from the book or the study materials were on the exam.  I have CISA and CRISC and regret registering for this prior to them developing better study guides.  With only 75 questions asked, you have to be prepared to answer most of them correctly.  The format resembles CISA but again I did not need to spend a $1000 for materials that were useless.

    Or if you don't have the CISA, skip this one and go straight for the CISA if that's your career path. I think the real purpose is to collect money from those who can't quite qualify for the CISA but ISACA still wants their money.

    IMO, When it comes to IS Auditing; CISA is and will be the gold standard for the foreseeable future.

    ISACA's Cybersecurity Audit Certificate is a sort of "good to have" credential if you want to highlight and emphasize on your cybersecurity audit skills more from a visibility perspective (for hiring managers) than the knowledge perspective.

    A+, Network+, CCNA, LFCS,
    Security+, eJPT, CySA+, PenTest+,
    Cisco CyberOps, GCIH, VHL,

    No it does not expire

    Then the cert is neither ANSI or ISO certified and should be discounted in value, right there.

    Hello

    I totally agree with what you say, I studied all the material that was provided to me, but it did not help me to pass the exam, how did you pass? Do you have any guide or test exams? I would really appreciate it if you help me !! my mail [email protected]
