HintonBurdick CPA Earns IS Auditor Certification
St. George, UT, March 26, 2010 – McKay Hall, a Certified Public Accountant with HintonBurdick CPAs and Advisors, assigned to the St. George office, recently became qualified as a Certified Information System Auditor (CISA), managing partner Morris Peacock announced today.
Certified Information Systems Auditors focus on the information systems used in accounting transactions, Peacock explained, including the logical or physical security of the system, its availability, the processes involved in system backups, and disaster recovery plans. “Having a CISA-certified individual on our staff significantly expands HintonBurdick’s auditing capabilities,” he stated, “enabling us to offer an even greater range of services to our clients.”
To earn the certification, Hall had to pass an exam demonstrating competency in a number of areas related to the use of information systems, including governance, infrastructure lifecycle management, and protection of information assets, and have five years of applicable work experience. To maintain the certification, he will have to obtain 120 Continuing Professional Education (CPE) hours every three years.
Prior to working with HintonBurdick, Hall spent ten years in the computer industry establishing and maintaining information software and networks, as well as other hardware and software solutions for business services. He has a B.A. in computer science from Southern Utah University, as well as a bachelor’s and a master’s degree in accounting from the same institution. He passed the CPA examination and became a licensed Certified Public Accountant in 2009.
Hall and his wife currently live in Enterprise.
