(Seattle, WA) The CISA Forum, founded in 2002 by Peter H. Gregory, CISA, CISSP, has now exceeded 3,000 members.  The Forum continues to grow, with new members being added almost every day.

Created to assist and encourage professionals to pursue a career in data security and IT auditing and to earn the CISA certification, the CISA Forum contains an extensive e-mail archive, as well as collections of useful files and links.  CISA stands for Certified Information Systems Auditor, one of the most sought-after professional certifications in the information security profession.

One of the most important features is the addition of the CISA FAQ, written by Dinesh Bareja.  Gregory announced his vision of the CISA FAQ to Forum members on December 29, 2006, and Bareja took the initiative to create it.  A link to the FAQ is found on the CISA Forum site.

The CISA Forum is located here: http://tech.groups.yahoo.com/group/CISAforum/ .

The CISA certification is owned and managed by the Information Systems Audit and Control Association.  ISACA does not endorse or sponsor the CISA Forum.  Read more about the CISA certification here.
