Overview

ISACA CISM

This accelerated CISM certification course is designed to get you a Certified Information Security Manager qualification much faster than traditional courses. Our CISM training teaches you how to manage, design, oversee and assess enterprise information security in just 4 days.

The CISM certification proves your knowledge of information security programmes and their role within business goals and objectives. Through Firebrand's unique Lecture | Lab | Review method, you'll go through the four ISACA CISM domains:

  • Information Security Governance
  • Information Risk Management and Compliance
  • Information Security Program Development and Management
  • Information Security Incident Management

ISACA Accredited Training Organisation (ATO)

Firebrand is an ISACA Accredited Training Organisation (ATO). This means you'll get access to official ISACA courseware and will sit your CISM exam during your accelerated course.

Firebrand is a premier ISACA partner for EMEA and the US. No other partner in these regions trains more students.

Residential or Online CISM course

Firebrand offers both a classroom-based and CISM online course, including everything you need to get certified in record time:

  • Official courseware, labs and practice exams
  • CISM certification exam
  • Accommodation, meals and snacks (for residential courses)

In this day and age, you get to choose the best one for your needs, and get your certification faster than anywhere else.

Seven reasons why you should sit your course with Firebrand Training

  2. You'll be CISM certified in just 4 days. With us, you’ll be CISM trained in record time
  3. Our CISM course is all-inclusive. A one-off fee covers all course materials, exams, accommodation and meals. No hidden extras
  4. Pass CISM first time or train again for free. This is our guarantee. We’re confident you’ll pass your course first time. But if not, come back within a year and only pay for accommodation, exams and incidental costs

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.

You'll sit the following exam at the Firebrand Training Centre, covered by your Certification Guarantee:

  • CISM Exam
    • Duration: 4 hours
    • Number of questions: 150 multiple choice
    • Languages: English, Chinese Simplified, Japanese, Korean and Spanish

The CISM exam tests knowledge in the following domains:

  • Domain 1 - Information Security Governance (24%)

Prerequisites

CISM requirements

There are no formal prerequisites for attending the CISM course and sitting the exam. In fact, this is a practice accepted and encouraged by ISACA.

Achieving the CISM Certification

In order to become CISM certified, you must meet the following requirements:

  1. Pass the CISM exam
  2. Adhere to ISACA's Code of Professional Ethics
  3. Agree to comply with the Continuing Education Policy
  4. Accumulate enough work experience in the field of information security.
  5. Submit an Application for CISM Certification within 5 years of passing the exam - see below

Submitting an Application for CISM Certification

The CISM certification is built for information security professionals, managers and other assurance providers. In order to be eligible, you must be able to submit verified evidence of a minimum of five years of information security work experience, with a minimum of three years of information security management work experience in three or more of the job practise analysis areas. The work experience must be gained within the 10-year period preceding the application date for certification or within 5 years from the date of originally passing the exam.

CISM experience requirements substitution

The following security-related certifications and information systems management experience can be used to satisfy the indicated amount of information security work experience.

Two Years:

  • Certified Information Systems Auditor (CISA) in good standing
  • Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP) in good standing
  • Post-graduate degree in information security or a related field (e.g., business administration, information systems, information assurance)

One Year:

  • One full year of information systems management experience
  • One full year of general security management experience
  • Skill-based security certifications (e.g., SANS or GIAC, Microsoft Certified Solutions Expert (MCSE), CompTIA Security +, Disaster, Recovery Institute Certified Business Continuity Professional (CBCP), ESL IT Security Manager)
  • Completion of an information security management program at an institution aligned with the Model Curriculum

The experience substitutions will not satisfy any portion of the 3-year information security management work experience requirement.

Experience Exceptions

Two years as a full-time university instructor teaching the management of information security can be substituted for every 1 year of information security experience.

Unsure whether you meet the prerequisites? Don’t worry. Your training consultant will discuss your background with you to understand if this course is right for you.

"Professional Staff and the Lecturer was a God send"
Mike Corcoran, Torfaen County Borough Council. (7/9/2020 (Monday) to 10/9/2020 (Thursday))

"Friendly staff and a secluded enough training centre to give to zero distractions to focus on studying and do well on the exam!"
Nelson Abrunhosa, Lockton. (7/9/2020 (Monday) to 10/9/2020 (Thursday))

"Excellent instruction and facilities"
Richard Vernon. (29/6/2020 (Monday) to 2/7/2020 (Thursday))

"The thought of attending a 4 day ISACA CISM course remotely due to COVID-19 did concern me. However my concerns were unfounded as I gained as much remotely as I would have on site, apart from the social side of course. The trainer is obviously very knowledgeable and is a good effective trainer in my opinion. I can't fault the course, arrangements or the trainer. I will be booking my exam shortly and will definitely consider Firebrand Training for future courses such as CISSP. Thank you."
Sam Wright, Tendring District Council. (29/6/2020 (Monday) to 2/7/2020 (Thursday))

"Excellent facilities immersive training that effectively balances exam preparation and deep practical know how."
Michael Green. (10/2/2020 (Monday) to 13/2/2020 (Thursday))
