Introduction

Course duration: 4 days, 9am – 5pm

In a world where enterprise success is increasingly dependent on information systems and information technology, the trust customers, clients, employees and other stakeholders have for an enterprise can quickly dissipate in the face of a data security breach. 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.

To ensure greater alignment between organizations’ information security programs and their broader goals and objectives, more and more enterprises and government agencies expect, and even require, their information security professionals to hold the Certified Information Security Manager® (CISM®) certification.

Supported by ISACA

This course is accredited by Information Systems Audit and Control Association.
