CISM Self-Assessment Exam 


CISM is unique in the information security credential marketplace because it is designed specifically for those with experience managing an information security program.

The CISM certification measures an individual’s management experience in information security situations, not general practitioner skills. Earning the CISM designation distinguishes you as a qualified information security management professional with experience and knowledge managing, designing and overseeing an enterprise’s information security.

ISACA has prepared the CISM self-assessment to help CISM exam candidates assess their knowledge of the CISM job practice areas and to determine their strengths and weaknesses in these areas. The self-assessment contains 50 sample items covering the appropriate proportion of subject matter to match the CISM exam blueprint. These items are representative of the types of questions that could appear on the CISM exam but have not appeared on the CISM exam. Note: The result of the self-assessment does not guarantee or indicate an individual’s success on the CISM exam. For additional information, review each area’s task and knowledge statements.

This 50-question self-assessment is one of many tools that you can use to help prepare for the CISM exam. Visit CISM Review Materials for a complete listing of study materials available to prepare for the exam.
