					          CISA Exam Boot Camp – Brussels – April 2010
In this era of corporate governance and accountability, the need to link sound corporate governance
with effective internal control has never been greater. IT governance has worked its way onto the
agenda of boards and executives as an item of interest and concern within the broader scope of
corporate governance.

With the continual increase in system complexity, organizations are looking to individuals who have
the proven experience and knowledge to ensure that an organization's information technology and
business systems are adequately assessed, controlled and protected. Certified Information Systems
Auditors (CISAs) have the proven ability to perform reviews in accordance with globally accepted
standards and guidelines to ensure that the organization’s information technology and business
systems are adequately controlled, monitored and assessed.

With more than 50,000 members in more than 140 countries, ISACA (www.isaca.org and
www.isaca.be) is a recognized global leader in IT governance, control and assurance. ISACA
develops globally applicable information systems auditing and control standards and administers the
internationally respected CISA designations.
For more information on the CISA certification, please go to www.isaca.org/cisa.

to prepare for the exam. Participants gain valuable experience reviewing these core sections and
answering sample exam questions with an experienced instructor while strengthening their skills and
building confidence.

Who should attend
