What is CISMP?
CISMP (Certificate in Information Security Management Principles) is a globally recognised information security qualification that provides a sound understanding of information security principles.
CISMP is aimed at those who work in, or who are seeking to work in, managerial or supervisory information security roles. It is also suitable for those who have a general interest in information security.
The qualification covers a wide range of topics, including risk management, business continuity, incident management and information security governance.
Is CISMP worth it?
CISMP is ideal for those who want to pursue a career in information security management. The certification is globally recognised and will help you stand out from the competition.
Who is CISMP for?
CISMP is widely regarded as the ‘qualification of choice’ for IT professionals and is recognised across the UK as an essential first rung on the ladder to a successful career in information security.
It is particularly valuable to those working in the public sector, as it is part of the CESG Certified Professional (CCP) scheme – the government’s approved standard of competence for cyber security.
CISMP is also suitable for business professionals who require a deeper understanding of information security as part of their wider business knowledge.
What will you learn?
The CISMP training course will equip you with an understanding of the key areas involved in information security management, including risk management, legal frameworks, business continuity, security standards (like ISO 27001), people and physical security.
