CISM® Preparation Course

5-day CISM® Preparation Course


The CISM certification is currently one of the most popular certifications in the field of information security management. This course trains you to become a broadly-skilled security management specialist. Upon completion of the course, you will have a solid knowledge of the four CISM domains and will be able to apply them in practice. You will be fully prepared for the international CISM exam. 


There are many providers of trainings that prepare you for the CISM exam. These courses focus mainly on exam training. Our experience, however, has shown us that the CISM exam should not be underestimated. Neither cramming nor practicing exam techniques alone will enable you to really learn the material and be able to apply it. This course distinguishes itself from others by focusing on a comprehensive understanding of the material and applying the acquired knowledge in practice. 


Target audience

This course is designed for people who are or expect to become responsible for information security in their organisations, and who need a solid grounding in the subject. For example:

  • information security consultants 
  • security managers who act at the tactical level in the organisation
  • information security coordinators 
  • IT auditors

Required knowledge

There is no prior knowledge required to attend this course but we recommend the Information Security Foundation course or equivalent prior to this course program.
