Certified Information Security Manager (CISM) E-learning

Certified Information Security Manager (CISM) is a globally accepted standard of achievement in enterprise security management. The course, closely aligned with ISACA best practices, demonstrates understanding of the relationship between information security programmes and business goals and objectives. It will enable you to design enterprise security architecture, deliver reliable service to customers and achieve IT compliance and governance. 

Course overview

About the course

The idea of approaching IT security from a business perspective rather than IT one is increasingly considered as a vital business driver; CISM stands out in this regard for its emphasis on business understanding and leadership. It will give you the skills to manage the ongoing security and adapt technology to your organisation.

What's covered?

Gain an in-depth knowledge of the four CISM domains:

  • Domain 1: Information security governance 
  • Domain 2: Information risk management and compliance 
  • Domain 3: Information security program development and management 
  • Domain 4: Information security incident management
