BCS Certificate in Information Security Management Principles (CISMP)

- Only 4 Days

The Certificate in Information Security Management Principles (CISMP) is an entry-level security course. It's similar to MTA Security and CompTIA Security+ certification courses - but vendor neutral and not technical.

Our version of CISMP is largely based on the bespoke Cyber Crime PROTECT course. In addition to using the official BCS book, it includes:

  • Network security elements: addressing key threats and vulnerabilities within an IT system and network;
  • Law, regulation and ethics (based primarily on UK/EU standards, but also US regulations where applicable);
  • Securing the infrastructure: more advanced network security-related content looking at technical and procedural controls when defending a network and IT infrastructure.

CISMP Prerequisites

There are no requirements for this course other than to be computer-literate.

  • Intensive group instruction
  • One-on-one instruction attention
  • Hands-on labs
