CISA Self-Assessment

CISA is unique in the information security credential marketplace because it is designed specifically and exclusively for individuals who have experience managing an information security program. The CISA certification measure an individual's management experience in information security situations, not general practitioner skills. Earning the CISA designation distinguishes you as a qualified information security management professional with experience and knowledge managing, designing and overseeing an enterprise's information security.

ISACA has prepared the CISA self-assessment to help CISA exam candidates assess their knowledge of the CISA job practice areas and determine in which information security areas they may have strengths and weaknesses. This self-assessment contains 50 sample items covering the appropriate proportion of subject matter to match the CISA exam blueprint. The items are not actual CISA exam items, but are representative of items that have appeared on the exam. Note that this self-assessment is not a substitute for the actual exam, nor does the result of the self-assessment test guarantee or indicate future individual success. For additional exam detail coverage, review each area's task and knowledge statements.

This 50 question self-assessment is one of many tools that you can use to help prepare for the CISA exam.
