Are there any pre-requisites to take an exam?

There are no pre-requisites to take an ISACA CISM exam. However, there are experience requirements to become certified after passing the exam. You need a minimum of five years of information security work experience, with a minimum of three years of information security management work experience in three or more of the job practice analysis areas. Having a CISSP, CISA or Security+ certification can count towards some of this experience.

What are the differences between CISA and CISM?

CISA certification is for auditors and the CISM is for information security managers and risk managers.CISM is not designed for practitioners. It is best suited for managerial positions and those making key information security management decisions.

What are the differences between CISSP and CISM?

The biggest difference between CISM and CISSP certifications is that the CISM is focused more on management and strategy, and only covers technical topics in a cursory way, while the CISSP addresses the tactical aspects of security operations and digs deeper into those areas.

The CISM certification targets experienced information security managers and those with information security management responsibilities, including information security managers, aspiring information security managers, IS/IT consultants and CIOs.

The CISM requires 5 years of experience in information security management to achieve, and mandate completion of continuing education to maintain.
