Award holders will be able to apply the practical principles covered throughout the course ensuring normal business processes become robust and more secure.

This is a thorough, practical, 5 day course designed to provide the knowledge and skills required to manage information security, information assurance or information risk based processes.

Although perceived as an IT issue, information security is in fact a subject relevant to all business units. The BCS Certificate in Information Security Management Principles (CISMP) programme is ideal for members of information security management teams, IT Managers, security and systems managers, information asset owners and employees with legal compliance responsibilities.

The course will act as a stepping stone to more advanced qualifications (either managerial or technical), and also sits nicely with existing project management and service management based programs.

Course Benefits

  • CISMP provides you with the perfect starting point for a career in information security, upon which more technical qualifications can be built
  • CISMP is widely regarded as the ‘qualification of choice’ for IT professionals who wish to develop a career in information security management
