Those seeking a qualification that demonstrates a broad understanding of information security management should consider the British Computer Society CISMP (Certificate in Information Security Management Principles).

Here are four reasons why:

  1. It’s the perfect starting point

If you are eager to develop a career in information security, CISMP is the perfect starting point. It provides a comprehensive introduction to information security management, upon which more technical qualifications can be built. The course content is also suitable for business professionals who require a deeper understanding of information security as part of their wider business knowledge.

  1. CISMP is the qualification of choice

CISMP is widely regarded as the ‘qualification of choice’ for IT professionals who wish to develop a career in information security management. Recognised across the UK as an essential first rung on the ladder to a successful career, this qualification is also approved by the UK government and the Ministry of Defence in the CESG Certified Professional training scheme.

  1. You’ll enhance your career prospects

Adding CISMP certification to your CV will demonstrate good knowledge and understanding of information security, risk management, legal frameworks, business continuity and physical security.

  1. There are no formal entry requirements

Although candidates should read Information Security Management Principles – the approved BCS reference book for this course and examination – before attending the course, CISMP is open to anyone with an interest in information security, whether as a career or for general business knowledge.
