Why Get a CISM Certification?

ISACA® Certified Information Security Manager® (CISM®) is a globally recognized credential that is sought after by employers, regulators and clients.

CISM certification shows internal and external stakeholders, peers, employers and regulators that you are a skilled enterprise information security manager with expertise in:

  • information security governance
  • managing information risk
  • developing and managing an information security program
  • information security management

CISM is one of the top tech credentials requested in job postings nationwide. It is also one of the baseline IT security certifications for DoD 8570, as required for employment in a federal government or contractor role.

Who Should Take CISM Training?

CISM is designed for experienced information security managers or those who plan to advance to a management role.

In addition to passing the exam, CISM certification requires a minimum of five years of information security management experience (or a combination of education, work experience and other credentials).

Note: You do not need to meet the experience requirements before taking the exam. Once you pass the CISM exam, you have five years to meet the experience requirements and apply for CISM certification.
