The rapidly increasing number of IT professionals pursuing the CRISC (Certified in Risk and Information Systems Control) reflects a growing need among IT professionals to attain independent affirmation of their skill sets in response to the radically changing IT and business landscape.  Currently there is a news article about CRISC certification with the headline - "CRISC certification: Reacting to a radically changing IT landscape" that we love to share with you.

ISACA offers free self-assessments to help Certified Information Systems Auditor (CISA) and Certified Information Security Manager (CISM) exam candidates gauge their knowledge of the respective job practice areas and determine in which areas they may have strengths and weaknesses.  Each self-assessment contains 50 sample items that cover the appropriate proportion of subject matter to match the respective exam blueprint.  The items are not actual exam items, but are representative of items that have appeared on the respective exams. (Note that these self-assessments are not substitutes for the actual exams, nor do the results of the self-assessments guarantee or indicate future success on either exam.)

CISA and CISM candidates who are sitting for the December 2011 exams are encouraged to utilize these self-assessments as they prepare. To take either self-assessment, please visit the CISA or CISM Self-assessment page of the ISACA web site.
