Digital Badges for ISACA Credential Verification


By 

ISACA has decided to take countermeasures against fraudulent security credentialing with the use of Open Badges. Open Badges by Mozilla are digitally displayed badges and in this case, they will be awarded to those who have completed training and acquired an ISACA certification.

How does it work?

Open Badges are secure digital representations of ISACA credentials, such as CISA, CISM, CGEIT or CRISC. They can be embedded into emails, personal websites, a résumé, as well as social and professional networking websites, such as Facebook and LinkedIn. Displaying your open badge across social platforms offers potential employers an easy way to verify and evaluate your competencies and achievement.
Once someone clicks on the badge, it calls up a set of metadata, verifying the certification and sums up the qualifications and the process, which were required to earn it.


“ISACA credentials are in demand by employers worldwide, and we are glad to offer our certification holders the opportunity to utilize open badges to demonstrate their accomplishments… Open Badges offer an efficient method for current and potential employers to validate a certification, and also give certification holders a simple and effective opportunity to tell their professional story and enhance their recognition.” said Allan Boardman, International Vice President of ISACA and Chair of ISACA’s Credentialing and Career Management Board, in a recent statement.
