About the course
Pass the CISM exam at the first attempt
The ISACA Certified Information Security Manager (CISM) qualification promotes international security practices and recognises the individual who manages, designs, oversees and assesses an enterprise’s information security. Launched in 2002, CISM is globally known and held by over 28,000 IT professionals worldwide.
The CISM Exam Preparation course is a classroom training session, which provides a comprehensive revision programme for the key job practice knowledge domains as well as exam preparation exercises that help delegates pass the exam at the first attempt. Delivered in just four days, this course has been designed to maximise time effectiveness and reduce any unnecessary time away from the office. It has also been shown to be more considerably more effective than self-study preparation, which requires more time and commitment.
This course is part of our ISACA Examination Preparation Programme which designed to provide an intensive and complete preparation to help delegates pass the CISA, CISM, CGEIT or CRISC exams.
