Review of Practice Questions
The most prestigious qualification available for information security managers today, the Certified Information Security Manager (CISM) certification sets a high bar for managers. Organizations around the world, including the government, are finding the time-tested, internationally respected CISM certification the best approach to ensuring the necessary level of information security practitioner and management competence.
Conducted by the principal author and editor of the CISM Review Manual, expert instructor, Mr. Brotby ensures this intensive training bootcamp is current and relevant to the ISACA certification standard.
CISM focuses on the job performed by an information security manager. Other security certifications are characterized by a focus on technical skills or platform, or product-specific knowledge, or they are aimed at the practitioner in the earlier years of their career. Only CISM targets the information security manager – the individual who has progressed beyond the practitioner focus. CISM is for the individual who must manage and oversee the enterprise’s information security effort, including the practitioners, many of whom may hold other certifications the field offers.
The focus on management that makes CISM unique is demonstrated in its experience requirement, which calls for a minimum of three years in information security management, and in its exam focus that is based on the practices performed by information security managers.
CISM defines the core competencies and international standards of performance that effective security managers are expected to master. It provides executive management with assurance that those that have earned the certification have the experience and knowledge to ensure effective business-focused security.
