CISM (Certified Information Security Manager)

The Certified Information Systems Manager (CISM) qualification is provided by ISACA, and roughly on a par with it’s CISA IT audit qualification. It is a certification for IT managers, and like CISA tries to strike a balance between technical IT knowledge and business understanding, with a focus on information risk management, information security governance, incident management, and developing and managing an information security program. It  requires a four hour multiple choice exam and five years relevant experience in an information security management role, although part of this can e waived for other relevant experience. Holders can use the post-nominal letters ‘CISM’, and their status can be verified on ISACA’s web site.
