Project Description

Modern enterprises demand IT audit professionals that possess the knowledge and expertise to help them identify critical issues and customise practices to support trust in -and value from- their Information Systems (IS).

This is particularly true in offshore business centres such as the Cayman Islands and Bermuda, the base for a large number of financial services entities such as Banks, Funds and Insurance companies

With a growing demand for individuals possessing IS audit, control and security skills, the Certified Information Systems Auditor (CISA) qualification has become a preferred certification program by individuals and organisations around the world. More than 50,000 people have now achieved this qualification.

The Information Systems Audit and Control Association (ISACA) is the global professional organisation that oversees the CISA designation. To get the qualification you need to pass the exams and possess a minimum of 5 years of professional experience in the fields of IS auditing, control, assurance or security.

CISA-qualified professionals are able to work on the Island/s either in-house or with consulting firms such as the Big Four accountancy firms, and can offer the following:

  • Provide the enterprise or client with a certification for IT assurance that is both credible and recognised by multinational clients
  • Demonstrate competence in five domains, including standards and practices; organisation and management; processes; integrity, confidentiality and availability; and software development, acquisition and maintenance
  • Demonstrate a commitment to providing the client with trust in -and value from- their Information Systems
  • Maintain ongoing professional development for successful on-the-job performance in the future

As with all opportunities on the Islands, a superb Work/Life balance, a low-tax or tax-free remuneration package and the chance to do something adventurous come as standard benefits.
