Over 900 slides are addressed in this interactive 3-day CISM Boot Camp, covering each of the core competencies and associated task and knowledge statements, ensuring coverage of the areas that will be tested.

“Krag’s involvement with the CISM exam is invaluable. Knowing he authors the CISM Review Manual and writes questions was key to knowing the Megamind Prep Exam Training for the CISM was providing extremely useful and targeted information. On exam day I found myself reflecting on Krag’s tips and guidelines for selecting the correct answer on many questions. I made my pick based on something I learned in the workshop. I highly recommend Megamind’s Prep Exam Training for the CISM.”
Eileen B., Information Security Officer
