ISACA Certified in Risk and Information Systems Control (CRISC)


The ISACA Certified in Risk and Information Systems Control (CRISC) is a certification for IT professionals focusing on risk management and control assurance. If you're aiming to validate your expertise in identifying and managing enterprise IT risk and implementing and maintaining information systems controls, the CRISC is for you. The CRISC exam covers essential domains such as IT Risk Identification, IT Risk Assessment, Risk Response and Mitigation, and Risk and Control Monitoring and Reporting.

Here's a breakdown of the main domains covered in the CRISC exam:

IT Risk Identification:

  • Collect and review information, including existing documentation, regarding the organization’s internal and external business and IT environments to identify potential or realized impacts of IT risk to the organization’s business objectives and operations.
  • Identify potential threats and vulnerabilities to the organization’s people, processes, and technology to enable IT risk analysis.
  • Develop a comprehensive set of IT risk scenarios based on available information to determine the potential impact to business objectives and align with the organization’s risk appetite.
  • IT Risk Assessment:

  • Analyze risk scenarios based on organizational criteria (e.g., organizational structure, policies, standards, technology, architecture, controls) to determine the likelihood and impact of an identified risk.
  • Identify the current state of existing controls and evaluate their effectiveness for IT risk mitigation.
  • Review the results of risk and control analysis to ensure they are correctly evaluated and interpreted, and the risk ownership is defined.
  • Risk Response and Mitigation:

  • Consult with risk owners to formulate risk responses based on risk appetite and ensure alignment with business objectives.
  • Consult with, or assist, risk owners in developing risk action plans to ensure they are aligned with business objectives and are achievable with existing resources.
  • Ensure that risk ownership is assigned at the appropriate level to establish clear lines of accountability.
  • Consult with, or assist, risk owners in the development of control designs and implementation plans.
  • Risk and Control Monitoring and Reporting:

  • Define and establish key risk indicators (KRIs) and thresholds based on available data, to enable monitoring of changes in risk.
  • Monitor and analyze key risk indicators (KRIs) to identify changes or trends in the IT risk profile.
  • Report on IT risk and controls to relevant stakeholders to support informed decision-making.
  • Facilitate the identification of metrics and key performance indicators (KPIs) to enable the measurement of control performance.
