CRISC - Certified in Risk and Information Systems Control
Propel your career with CRISC certification and build greater understanding of the impact of IT risk and how it relates to your organization.
Types of risk may vary, but with its key role as an agent of innovation, technology has become the most critical risk factor for today’s enterprises. Since, conducting a risk assessment is not something a typical information technology education includes, many IT professionals are lacking in knowledge that businesses increasingly deem integral to their future success.
The CRISC designation demonstrates the holder is able to identify and evaluate IT risk and help their enterprise accomplish its business objectives. Since its inception in 2010, more than 20,000 professionals worldwide have earned the CRISC to affirm their business and IT risk management competence, and their ability to design, implement, monitor and maintain effective, risk-based information systems controls.
- CRISC certification ensures you are recognized as a professional with the skills and experience to provide value and insight from an overall organizational perspective on both IT risk and control.
