Certified Information Security Manager (CISM) Training

Enhance Your Information Security Skills

The success of today's enterprise relies on the trust customers and stakeholders put in the organization — and that trust can be irreparably damaged during a data breach. More and more organizations are turning to expert information security managers to align their security posture with organizational goals. That's where the Information Systems Control Association® (ISACA®) Certified Information Security Manager™ (CISM®) comes in.

Designed for information security managers, IS/IT consultants, and Chief Information Officers (CIOs), CISM is a world-class standard in enterprise security management certification.

Earning CISM certification demonstrates your ability to implement an information security management program. Learning Tree's Course 2036 can help you prepare for the CISM certification exam, covering the four CISM domains: security governance; risk management and compliance; security program development and management; and security incident management.



  • Applicants must submit verified evidence of a minimum five years of information security work experience, with a minimum three years of information security management work experience in three or more of the job practice analysis areas. The work experience must be gained within the 10-year period preceding the application date for certification or within five years from the date of originally passing the exam.


Earn CISM Certification:

  • The CISM exam is offered three times a year (June, September, and December), consisting of 200 multiple choice questions that cover the four CISM domains.

Maintain Your Certification:

The CISM CPE policy requires the attainment of CPE hours over a one- and three-year certification period. CISMs must comply with the following requirements to retain certification:

  • Attain and report a minimum of 20 CPE hours each year — these hours must be appropriate to the currency or advancement of the CISM’s knowledge or ability to perform CISM-related tasks
  • Submit annual CPE maintenance fees to ISACA International Headquarters in full
  • Attain and report a minimum of 120 CPE hours for a three-year reporting period
  • Submit required documentation of CPE activities if selected for the annual audit
  • Comply with ISACA’s Code of Professional Ethics

The use of CPE hours towards meeting the requirements for multiple ISACA certifications is permissible when the professional activity applies to satisfying the job-related knowledge of each certification.
