CISM vs CISSP certification

Both certifications are vendor-neutral, advanced programmes in IT security. Despite many similarities, however, they are complementary instead of in direct competition to each other. Here's what CISM and CISSP have in common:

  • Vendor-neutral
  • Require 5 years of experience in information security management
  • Maintenance requires completion of continuing education

Perhaps the main difference is that CISM is more holistic and management-focused, where CISSP has a more technical approach.
