ISACA has a free glossary of IT, audit, and security terms that is not only helpful in studying for the CISA exam, but is a good reference guide for new and experienced auditors.
The glossary is 38 pages long and can be downloaded free from ISACA in PDF format.
The document includes mostly IT and security terms, but also covers audit terminology and some finance concepts. Although the definitions are not in-depth explanations, they provide the basic concepts, and some include “audit scope” notes.
The glossary defines terms like:
- Attribute sampling
- Black Box testing
- Capability Maturity Model
- Chain of custody
- Reasonable assurance
- Suspense file
