The ISACA® Certified in Governance of Enterprise IT (CGEIT)® certification is the world-leading vendor-neutral certification designed for IT professionals in large organisations who are responsible for directing, managing and supporting the governance of IT. CGEIT® recognises a wide range of professionals for their knowledge and application of enterprise IT governance principles and practices. As a CGEIT certified professional, you demonstrate that you are capable of bringing IT governance into an organisation—that you grasp the complex subject holistically, and therefore, enhance value to the enterprise.
IT systems are continually evolving to ensure competitiveness, enable reach to global markets and handle external pressures such as regulation. By managing, advising and assessing the enterprise’s IT infrastructure and processes, individuals play a role in IT governance and provide significant support to the board of directors and executive management. The CGEIT® program supports increasing business demands and recognises the wide range of professionals whose knowledge and application of IT governance principles are key to managing the forces of transition.
Organisations employ a CGEIT to ensure they get good governance, an environment of no or few “surprises”, and the ability to have an agile response to any that arise. Increasingly, CGEIT is viewed by companies and governmental agencies around the world as a necessary prerequisite for anyone involved with enterprise IT governance.
The CGEIT course, held over 3 days, covers five domains of practice identified as being key to ensuring that IT and business systems operate with greater efficiencies and optimum effectiveness thereby creating greater trust in and value from the investment in IT:
- Domain 1—Framework for the Governance of Enterprise IT (25%)

- Domain 3—Benefits Realisation (16%)
