5. Certified Information Systems Auditor (CISA), $106,181
"The fifth highest-paying certification is also from ISACA, and this one is for IS auditors," said Hales. "CISA certification is ISACA's oldest, dating back to 1978, with more than 106,000 people certified since its inception. CISA certification requires at least five years of experience in IS auditing, control, or security in addition to passing an exam that is only offered three times per year."
