You’re a leader in cybersecurity. And in this ever-changing industry where cyberthreats grow in sophistication every day, you recognize the importance of strong information systems security management to defend organizations and their critical assets against bad actors.
Information Systems Security Management Professional (ISSMP) certification from ISC2 demonstrates deep management and leadership skills and the advanced knowledge to establish, present and govern information security programs.
There are now two ways to earn the ISSMP — including a second path that removes the CISSP requirement. This new option makes the ISSMP accessible to more professionals seeking certification that specifically demonstrates their advanced knowledge, skills and abilities in the fields of security management.
Path 1: CISSPs in good standing must have a minimum of two years of cumulative full-time experience in one or more of the five domains in the current ISSMP Exam Outline.
Path 2: All other candidates must have a minimum of seven years of cumulative full-time experience in two or more of the five domains in the current ISSMP Exam Outline. Earning a post-secondary degree (bachelor’s or master’s) in computer science, information technology (IT) or related fields or an additional credential from the ISC2-approved list may satisfy one year of the required experience. Part-time work and internships may also count toward the experience requirement.
