Was one of the lucky few who sat with #ISACA for a review of my ‪#‎CISA‬ Exam -- Here's my Passer Profile :)
 
Passer Profile: Giannella De Leonardo

With tongue firmly in cheek, Giannella De Leonardo refers to herself as the four-foot lady whose job requires running around the office screaming, “We’re being hacked!”

But this week, her excitement has more positive origins. The Malta–based information security analyst learned that she passed #ISACA’s June CISA exam.

“I didn't see the email,” Giannella explains. “I was out camping and swimming for the weekend and got a social-network message from a friend of mine. So I clumsily fumbled away on my phone, logged in to MyISACA and saw “Exam Result: Passed.” I had to go through the page twice to make sure I wasn't hallucinating.”

She wasn’t. And she earned her passing marks by beginning her studies six months prior to the exam. In the final three months, she focused on the CISA Review Manual and found support and encouragement in online CISA study groups.

“While ISACA’s CISA focuses on the auditor, my current role fills that of an auditee,” she says. “I'm looking forward to applying what I've learned so as to be able to work more harmoniously with our QSAs during an audit. CISA is a highly regarded certification and will certainly play an important role if I decide to pursue other opportunities in information security and auditing.”

Giannella admits she wasn’t sure how well she did upon leaving the exam. But her preparation, smarts and work history paid off.

“Obviously I was overjoyed I passed, and getting a pat on the back from managers and colleagues made it all worthwhile,” says the analyst, who plans to pursue the certification immediately and who hashtagged the tweet announcing her success with “uberstoked.”

She’s so stoked, in fact, that she immediately registered for the December CISM exam.
