ISACA’s Certified Information Security Manager (CISM) certification is for those with technical expertise and experience in IS/IT security and control and wants to make the move from team player to manager. CISM can add credibility and confidence to your interactions with internal and external stakeholders, peers and regulators.
Our course is a live in-person classroom course or a live online class, your choice, and all classes are live instructor-led classes. All classes are held in one of our comfortable classroom locations either in New York City, Washington DC, Boston or live online.
MOST UPDATED COURSEWARE
Our course was designed by a group of CISM certified security professionals and accredited instructors. Our courseware took over 900 hours to develop and is updated after each bootcamp from feedback we receive from students that has taken and passed the CISM exam.
While other providers spend 6-7 days teaching this course, covering topics that will not likely show up on your CISM exam, our course is laser focus and more efficient. This course is designed to help you pass an exam and doesn’t cover topics that will not show up on your exam, such as outdated technology and theories. This course includes over 40 hours of classroom training, practice exam sessions, and exam cram sessions.
ACCESS TO OUR E-LEARNING COURSE
Students will also be given free access to our e-learning course which includes over 20 hours of content and over 2,500 questions, a $699 value. This e-learning course will summarize all the important topics students will need to master before taking their official exam. Our practice exams will give students an accurate view of the CISM exam and will include 4 complete mock exams.
CISM CERTIFIED AND LICENSED INSTRUCTORS
Our CISM certified and licensed instructors will ensure students only get the best in training. We use a very small pool of instructors to teach this course who must have at least 5 years of CISM exam training and 10 years of work experience. Our instructors have taught thousands of classes is the last 15 years.
OUR PROPRIETARY COURSEWARE
Our proprietary courseware includes a summary of the (ISC)² Official CISM Exam with all of the main points and exam “hot topics”. Our course will include discussion, labs and demonstrations. Students will be engaged throughout the class while completing labs and quizzes.
UNLIMITED RETAKES OF THE CLASS FOR ONE YEAR
You can retake the course as many times as needed completely free. While other providers will allow a retake only if you fail. We don’t believe a retake of a course should be allowed only when a student fails an exam.

FULL MONEY BACK GUARANTEE
Our classes also include a full money back guarantee. If you cannot pass the CISM exam after 2 retakes we will issue you a full refund of the course tuition. All we ask is to take the exams within 6 months from your first class completion and a willingness to learn.
