CRISC - Certified in Risk and Information Systems Control

CRISC

The CRISC certification recognizes a wide range of professionals for their knowledge of enterprise risk and their ability to design, implement, monitor, and maintain IS controls to mitigate such risk.

The Certified in Risk and Information Systems Control certification (CRISC, pronounced "see-risk") is designed for IT professionals who have hands-on experience with risk identification, assessment, and evaluation, along with risk response, risk monitoring, IS control design, implementation, monitoring, and maintenance.

The CRISC designation will not only certify professionals who have knowledge and experience identifying and evaluating entity-specific risk, but it also aids them in helping enterprises accomplish business objectives by designing, implementing, monitoring, and maintaining risk-based, efficient, and effective IS controls.

Risk management has rapidly become a priority among IT professionals. ISACA®'s CRISC credential was created and added to the ISACA family of credentials to address this growing market need for individuals who can effectively manage IT and business risks.

Why CRISC

With the complexity of information systems, increased risks, and the need for compliance, it is more important than ever that organizations develop, recruit, and retain employees who can take a comprehensive view of information systems and their relationship to organizational success.

The CRISC designation certifies professionals who have knowledge and experience identifying and evaluating entity-specific risk, as well as designing, implementing, monitoring, and maintaining risk-based, efficient, and effective IS controls.

Those who earn the CRISC designation help enterprises to accomplish their business objectives and benefit from the rising business demands for IT professionals who understand business risk and have the technical knowledge to implement an appropriate IS control architecture.
