CISSP®-ISSMP®: Information Systems Security Management Professional

Where Technology Meets Leadership

This concentration requires that a candidate demonstrate two years of professional experience in the area of management on a large enterprise-wide security model. This concentration contains deep managerial elements, such as project management, risk management, setting up and delivering a security awareness program, and managing a business continuity planning program. A CISSP-ISSMP establishes, presents, and governs information security programs demonstrating management and leadership skills. Typically the ISSMP certification holder or candidate will construct the framework of the information security department and define the means of supporting the group internally. ISSMPs have a far more well-rounded and complete comprehension of information security than other popular management credentials.  

Who should obtain the ISSMP certification?

The ISSMP is ideal for CISSPs working in positions such as, but not limited to:

  • Chief information officer
  • Chief information security officer
  • Chief technology officer

To qualify for the ISSMP, you must have at least 2 years of cumulative paid, full-time professional work experience in the area of management, maintain your CISSP credential in good standing, and pass the ISSMP examination.
