I get asked all the time, “How do I get a job in IT audit with little or no experience?”
When Michael Onuoha asked me this question (see here), I thought I’d share my response with my readers.
You’ll find these same answers scattered around the blog as I answered people in the past, but I thought I’d pull it all together into one place.
Breaking into any field can be difficult, but it can be done. Especially when the demand for IT auditors is so high.
If you’re looking for FREE practice questions for the CISA exam, I found a good resource.
The site provides over 900 questions for you to test yourself.
Below is a list of the top paying certs for 2014 (including average salary amount).
The list is based on the 2014 IT Skills and Salary Survey conducted by Global Knowledge and Penton, completed in October 2013.
After the list, I offer a few comments on some of the certs and the salaries.
If you’re planning to take the CISA exam, you need to take ISACA‘s own CISA Self-Assessment exam (get it here).
The exam consists of 50 questions that allow exam candidates to “assess their knowledge of the CISA job practice areas and determine in which information security areas they may have strengths and weaknesses.”
This post answers these questions: Why get the CISSP certification? What has it done for me? What else do I need to know?
Charles, one of my readers, asked me, “Do you have postings related to CISSP?” Not many, but here’s one….
To make these posts easier to find (and link to), here’s a list of all the CISA-related posts on this blog, in alphabetical order.
I’ll add other CISA posts as they are written.
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.
