While the central focus of the CISM certification is information security management, all those in the IT profession with security experience will certainly find value in the CISM.

This course covers the complete curriculum of CISM and aims to provide deep knowledge on all domains of CISM including information security governance, program development and management, incident management and risk management. This course aims to provide sufficient knowledge to a candidate which eventually add credibility and confidence in candidate’s interactions with internal and external stakeholders, peers, and regulators.
