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.

The CISM Exam Preparation course is an intensive, four-day review program to prepare individuals who are planning to sit for the Certified Information Security Manager (CISM) exam.

The course focuses on the key points covered in the CISM Review Manual 15th Edition and includes class lectures, group discussions/activities, exam practice and answer debriefs. The course is intended for individuals with familiarity with and experience in information security management.

  • General Examination Information
  • Information Security Governance
  • Information risk management
  • Information security program development and management
  • Information security incident management
  • Exam practice/sample exam

Typically, each day of the course will cover a single CISM domain, using lecture, group activities and practice questions.
