Updated: Jan 17

Seiber's CISM Training Course

In the ever-evolving realm of cyber threats and digital advancements, information security has become the cornerstone of business continuity and global stability.

As cyber threats evolve and intensify, organisations increasingly seek qualified professionals to safeguard their valuable assets and protect their digital ecosystems.

Certified Information Security Managers (CISMs) stand out as trusted experts, possessing the skills and expertise to navigate the complex and ever-changing cyber threat landscape.

As a globally recognised benchmark of excellence in information security, CISM certification empowers individuals with the expertise and skills to effectively manage and protect an organisation's information security posture and to mitigate continuously evolving threat tactics.


The Enduring Relevance of CISM Certification

Launched in 2002, CISM certification is administered by ISACA (Information Systems Audit and Control Association), a global non-profit association, and is held by over 50,000 IT professionals worldwide.

The exam is a rigorous test of an individual's knowledge and skills in information security management, providing a comprehensive understanding of 4 key domains:

  • Information Security Governance: CISMs are equipped to establish and maintain effective information security governance frameworks, ensuring that cybersecurity is an integral part of an organisation's overall strategy.

  • Information Risk Management: CISMs possess the skills to identify, assess, and mitigate information security risks, minimising potential disruptions and financial losses.

  • Information Security Program Development and Management: CISMs are experts in developing and managing comprehensive information security programs that align with organisational objectives and industry best practices.

  • Information Security Incident Management: CISMs respond effectively to cybersecurity incidents, minimising their impact and ensuring a swift recovery.

There are many benefits to gaining CISM certification, some of the most relevant include:

  • Increased career opportunities: CISMs are in high demand by organisations in all industries. They are also eligible for a wider range of jobs than non-certified professionals.

  • Higher salaries: CISMs command higher salaries amongst other variables.

  • Greater recognition: CISMs are recognised as experts in information security management. They are frequently called upon to speak at conferences and events, and as influential members of the cybersecurity community, are often quoted in the media.

  • Increased job satisfaction: CISMs report a high level of job satisfaction. They enjoy the challenge of protecting their organisations from cyberattacks, and they appreciate their work's impact on the organisation's overall success.
