Enquire about this course


Around the world, demand for skilled information security management professionals is on the rise, and the CISM certification is the globally accepted standard of achievement in this area. The uniquely management-focused CISM certification ensures holders understand business, and know how to manage and adapt technology to their enterprise and industry. CISM holders are consistently recognized among the most qualified professionals in the information security and risk management fields. To ensure greater alignment between organisations' information security programmes and their broader goals and objectives, more and more enterprises and government agencies expect, and even require, their information security professionals to hold the CISM certification.


You should have a basic understanding of security technologies gained from 3-5 years industry experience or equivalent experience from another training event like Nemstar's CISSP Progamme. A basic understanding of information systems and networking is also required.


The event fully prepares delegates for the Certified Information Security Manager (CISM) exam. Please note the exam and exam cost is not included with the course

Effective Information Security Managers need to understand more than just Firewalls and Phishing. Having a clear Strategy and Roadmap with Strong Governance and Charter is perhaps more important. Learn how to use COBIT methodology and security architectures like TOGAF and SABSA to build a value focused InfoSec programme with RiskIT and ValIT. Uniquely focused on the management and implementation of successful information security programmes, this event is more like an MBA than MSCE or CCNA!
