    This is a random question but the CISM/CISA exams seem pretty popular among users from countries outside the U.S. Is that true, and if so is there any reasoning behind ISACA's popularity worldwide?

    Not just the 2 but all 4. I attribute this to the standards maintained by ISACA for certifications and repute it has created over the years. Also InfoSec is an evergreen domain, and core skills are a requirement in the Industry. This cert' helps not only update ur skills but also endorses the same.

    Did not pass the CISM exam, this is the second time I have taken the exam. Debating whether to take it for the third and final time in December or walk away from it and revisit next year. Hard to determine whether I am not understanding the material or not answering the questions the ISACA way. Congrats to all that have passed and good luck to those looking to take it again in December!

    Depends on how motivated are you to achieve the CISM cert but it might be worth giving it another go. I would say knowing the material is important but it's hugely important to understand ISACA way so practice and focus. Best of luck!

    The motivation is there, the morale is low....LOL However I'm leaning towards giving it a go in December, will decide before the last registration day next week. Need to look at a different preparation approach, as it seems what I have been doing is not cutting it. And in terms of scoring, I'm only a few points from passing but that's not comforting, I'd rather be well above just barely passing. Any thoughts on preparation would be greatly appreciated.

    I had used the CISM review manual and the Q&A. Both I found useful, specifically the Manual for theory. There are other options as well but were not THAT useful. Also having experience in this InfoSec also helps (which am sure u wud have).

    I have a quick question regarding the application for CISA certification. For verification of work experience (pp. 7 and 9 of the application form refers), there are a number of boxes which pertain to CISA job practice areas. I know it may sound a bit silly, but are we supposed to check all boxes? Or do we just need to check those boxes that we have experience in? Will ISACA challenge candidates for not checking most of the boxes?

    I would recommend leveraging Q&A database, and then make notes of the areas you need to focus extra effort. Understand the concept and think how information security can support business. Good luck-

    Received an acknowledgement of the application from ISACA, now waiting for approval. I am assuming the approval process takes approx. 3 weeks?

    I would recomend the 2 day virtual training by Krag Brotby who also happens to be one of the author/contributor for the CISM manual. The training is given via Megamind and I found it very useful. Krag's analysis is immensely helpful and the session is not expensive.

    Hi, I also passed the exam and I'm now submitting the CISM certification application documents and I would have a question. I know it is required to submit "verified evidence of a minimum of five years of information security work experience, with a minimum of three years of information security management work experience in three or more of the job practice analysis areas."

    Considering each area has several tasks, is it required to have experience in all tasks of at least 3 areas? Or is it enough to have experience in let's say 6-7 tasks per area? And what about you, how many task per area did you cross in the CISM certification application?

    Just received an email from ISACA and my CISM cert has been approved, the application process took approx. 2 weeks which is pretty good!
