7. What is the difference between CISSP and CISM?

The Certified Information Security Manager (CISM) certification from ISACA is regarded as the closest traditional competitor to the CISSP. The CISM was created by ISACA as a managerial credential for individuals managing CISA-certified auditors. While both CISSP and CISM target a similar audience and require 5 years of experience, the certifications are very different. While there is some overlap, the CISS covers a greater scope than the CISM. The CISM is solely management focused, while CISSP is both technical and managerial. In many respects, the CISSP and CISM complement one another, rather than directly compete. It should be noted that the CISSP is more widely known, respected and demanded by employers.


8. What Is the value of CISM Certification?

Many employers do require a CISM certification as a qualification for employment. Moreover, CISM- certified IT professionals see tangible benefits to their career earnings and career path for advancement.

  • CISM is among the highest-paying IT certifications based on the “2016 IT Skills and Salary Report” conducted by Global Knowledge, with an average salary of US $121,177.
  • CISM is the highest-paying certification for 2015 in Certification Magazine’s “Annual Salary Survey.”

The CISM certification signifies that an IT professional has reached a level of proficiency to:

  • Demonstrate an understanding of the relationship between an information security program and broader business goals and objectives
  • Display not only information security expertise, but also knowledge and experience in the development and management of an information security program
  • Identify critical issues and customize company-specific practices to support the governance of information and related technologies
  • Take a comprehensive view of information systems security management and their relationship to organizational success
