About the EISM Program
Candidates who do not yet have 5 years of information security experience in at least 3 of the 5 CCISO Domains can still pursue a management certification to help propel their careers and put them on fast track toward obtaining the CCISO. EISM students must attend training – the same CCISO training that upper level executives attend – before attempting the EISM exam. There are no experience requirements for this exam. The courseware and training programs are exactly the same as those of the CCISO program. Imagine being able to push your new information security career forward using the same resources as seasoned professionals. That’s what the EISM program does. The EISM exam is a light version of the CCISO exam and tests the fundamentals of information security management.
