The CISA Certified Information Systems Auditor All-In-One Exam Guide, published by Osborne McGraw-Hill, is now available in bookstores and from online merchants.
Written by Peter H. Gregory, this book is largest and most complete study guide available for the CISA (Certified Information Systems Auditor) professional certification. Prior to Osborne McGraw-Hill’s decision to publish this book, the other study guides that were available are shorter and contain less detail. This difference is key for IT professionals who are studying for the CISA certification, which places high demands on the exam taker to be able to recall many details and specifications about information technology, key business processes, and IT auditing.
Despite its title, CISA Certified Information Systems Audit All-In-One Exam Guide is structured and designed to also be a desk reference for early- and mid-career security auditors and security specialists who need a reliable, easily-consumed reference guide for key information technologies and IT auditing practices. The book contains two chapters that go beyond the CISA study material and include lengthy discussions of professional IT auditing and security and governance frameworks.
“The availability of this study guide represents a big step forward for IT professionals who are studying for the CISA exam and those who have IT security and audit responsibilities,” states Peter H. Gregory. “The IT industry has waited a long time for an All-In-One guide for this popular certification,” he adds, citing the enormous popularity of the CISSP All-In-One Study Guide that is written by Shon Harris and considered the best CISSP guide available.
