ISACA to partner with the Skills Framework

ISACA has entered in a partnership with the Skills Framework for the Information Age Foundation(SFIA), which implies that Certified InformationSystems Auditor (CISA) and Certified Information Security Manager (CISM) certifications are now recognised in the Skills Framework. This framework provides a standardised view of IT-related work areas and the levels of responsibility that employers can use to identify skill gaps in companies. IT workers can also use it to benchmark their skills and plan for career development.
The Skills Framework is the preferred model used by governments since its inception in 2003, and more than 15,000 businesses, in over 100 countries, to manage skill needs and to set national education and training requirements.
