ISACA Extends CRISC Grandfathering for Risk and Control Professionals

March 2011 by Marc Jacob

Due to overwhelming demand, ISACA, a nonprofit association of more than 95,000 IT professionals worldwide, has extended the grandfathering program for its new Certified in Risk and Information Systems Control (CRISC) designation until 30 June 2011. The grandfathering program permits those with appropriate experience to become certified without taking an exam. Since the grandfathering program opened in April 2010, more than 9,000 IT and business professionals have applied for the certification.

“Managing risk is growing rapidly as a business issue. CRISC is already valued by employers because it helps them identify candidates who demonstrate an ability to effectively manage IT-related business risk,” said Urs Fischer, CISA, CRISC, chair of ISACA’s CRISC Certification Committee. “Earning CRISC or another globally recognized certification is also a great way to differentiate yourself in the market.”

The CRISC (pronounced “see-risk”) credential helps professionals gain recognition oftheir ability to design, implement, monitor and maintain effective risk-based information systems controls. The domain areas of practice covered by the certification include:

Risk identification, assessment and evaluation
Risk response
Risk monitoring
IS control design and implementation
IS control monitoring and maintenance

The CRISC grandfathering program enables highly experienced professionals to apply for the CRISC credential without taking the CRISC exam by exhibiting eight years of related experience. Details on the CRISC certification grandfathering program are at

The first CRISC exam will be held on 11 June 2011.
