CGEIT is a vendor-neutral certification for experienced tech professionals looking to expand their knowledge and skills in enterprise information technology (IT) governance. The credential is designed to provide certification for those who direct, manage or otherwise support the governance of IT in large organizations. ISACA, an international non-profit organization previously known as the Information Systems Audit and Control Association, developed and runs CGEIT, which is accredited by the ANSI. It covers five areas: Framework for the Governance of Enterprise IT, Strategic Management, Benefits Realization, Risk Optimization and Resource Optimization. CGEIT-certified professionals also must have at least five years of cumulative work experience, including at least one year defining, implementing and managing a governance framework.
