Earning a CISA certification validates your ability to audit, control, and monitor information systems. The CISA Cert Prep series prepares you to tackle this exam and acquire the skills you need to confidently manage IT security audits. This course—the second in the series—teaches the concepts of IT governance and management that the CISA candidate needs to know.

Instructor Michael Lester starts out with a description of IT governance and the role of IT policies, processes, and standards, providing examples of many of the most common types.
