Managing IT Risk: CRISC Certification for Controlling Information System Risk
CRISC Risk Management ConsultantsThe CRISC credential (Certified in Risk and Information Systems Control) was created by the Information Systems Audit and Control Association (ISACA) to certify an IT professional's ability to assess information system risk and implement risk management control solutions that support an enterprise's business goals. CRISC certification signifies a combination of deep technical knowledge, broad business understanding, plus years of relevant work experience.
