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:
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
