Certified Information Security Manager (CISM)

Overview

As information technology continues to grow at a global scale, organizations have to ensure greater
alignment between their information security programs and their broader goals and objectives. More and more enterprises are becoming reliant on the security function, and the need to have information security professionals with the necessary skill set to secure their information systems.

As the growing number of high-profile breaches demonstrates, information security failures can result in significant damage to an enterprise’s bottom line as well as its reputation with customers, government agencies and other stake holders.

The CISM is a certification for information security managers awarded by ISACA (http://www.isaca.org/Certification/CISM-Certified-Information-Security-Manager/Pages/default.aspx), formerly the Information Systems Audit and Control Association. The intent of the certification is to provide a common body of knowledge for information security management. The CISM focuses on information risk management as the basis of information security. It also includes material on broader issues such as how to govern information security as well as on practical issues such as developing and managing an information security program and managing incidents.
