Introduction to CGEIT

Boards and executive management have long understood the need for enterprise and corporate governance. As information technology (IT) has become more important to the achievement of enterprise goals and delivery of benefits, there has been an increasing realization that governance must be extended to IT as well. IT governance is an integral part of enterprise governance and consists of the leadership and organizational structures and processes that ensure that the enterprise’s IT sustains and extends the enterprise’s strategies and objectives.

ISACA recognized this shift in emphasis in 1998, and formed the IT Governance Institute® (ITGITM) to focus on original research, publications, resources and symposia on IT governance and related topics. To support and promote this significant body of work, in 2007, ISACA developed the Certified in the Governance of Enterprise IT (CGEIT) program for professionals charged with satisfying the IT governance needs of an enterprise.

The CGEIT designation meets the needs of:

  • Individuals by recognizing and elevating the expertise, skill sets, abilities and experiences of those performing IT governance work
  • Enterprises by identifying those who have made a tangible commitment to excellence in IT governance practices
  • The profession by supporting the increasing global trends toward IT governance activities
  • Business by improving the awareness of IT governance good practices and issues

The certification process has been specifically developed for professionals who have a significant management, advisory, or assurance role relating to the governance of IT. The certification promotes the advancement of professionals who wish to be recognized for their IT governance-related experience and knowledge.
