About this course

Course code QACISMP
Duration 5 Days

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. QA's CISMP course is aligned with the latest national information assurance frameworks (IAMM), as well as ISO/IEC 27002 & 27001; the code of practice and standard for information security. This course is a GCHQ Certified Training (GCT) course.

The course follows the latest BCS syllabus and prepares delegates for the 2 hour multiple choice BCS examination which is sat on the afternoon of the last day of the course.

This qualification provides delegates with detailed knowledge of the concepts relating to information security; (confidentiality, integrity, availability, vulnerability, threats, risks and countermeasures), along with an understanding of current legislation and regulations which impact information security management. Award holders will be able to apply the practical principles covered throughout the course ensuring normal business processes become robust and more secure.

Target Audience:

Although perceived as an IT issue, Information Security is in fact a subject relevant to all business units. The CiSMP program 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.
