ISACA Certified Information Security Manager (CISM) FAQs
Which is better CISA or CISM?

CISM will be more useful to ensure leadership. However, if you are engaged in auditing, regulatory compliance, and assurance, or want to develop your career in the IT auditing field, CISA is more suitable. It is recommended that professionals in a leading position in the IT field take care of both.

Should I get CISM if I have CISSP?

The CISM and CISSP are two of the most highly regarded cybersecurity certifications for leaders and practitioners.

CISM demonstrates that you have broad technical knowledge, an understanding of business objectives related to data security, and experience managing enterprise information security teams. On the other hand, the CISSP certification validates your ability to design, implement, and manage a cybersecurity program. CISSP, like CISM, is a certification that is typically pursued by experienced security practitioners in management or executive positions, but it can also be pursued by experienced security analysts and engineers.

CISM is thought to be a complement to CISSP. If you want to advance in your management career, getting CISM after CISSP can be beneficial.

Who is eligible for CISM?

You must have five years of information security work experience, with at least three years of information security management work experience in three or more of the job practice analysis areas, to earn the CISM credential.

How do I get CISM certified?

To be certified, you must meet five criteria:

  • Passing the CISM certification exam
  • Following ISACA's "Code of Professional Ethics"
  • Completing at least 20 hours of continuing professional education per year and at least 120 hours in a three-year period
  • Verification of at least five years of work experience in the field of information security, including three or more years in information security management, within five years of passing the certification exam
  • Submitting the CISM application and paying the application fee.
How many CISM are there in the world?

According to ISACA, there are over 48,000 CISM-certified professionals worldwide.

How much does CISM cost?

For non-members of ISACA, the CISM exam costs $760 USD. Averest will provide an extensive training course for the CISM exam, practice sessions, and a certification exam voucher. See our training options and course schedule for more information.
