    Default Need suggestion for CISM

    Hi all,

    I would like to appear for CISM, but i dont have any prior exp in security. I am working as web developer. After going through the blog I thought may be first I should do my CISSP (to have basics in security) and then to proceed my CISM.

    Please suggest me how should I start my career in security ?. ....

    Thanks all for your time,

    Viveka

    If you don't have any experience in security, I think the Security+ is the best place to start. After that, you can become an (ISC)^2 associate by passing either the SSCP or the CISSP. You will remain an associate until you satisfy the certification's prerequisites.

    You'll need at least three years of information security management work experience to be awarded the CISM. It's unlikely that someone with no InfoSec experience would start immediately in a management position. It's more likely you'll get the work experience to qualify for the SSCP and CISSP first. But regardless, the Security+ is where everyone interested in InfoSec should start.

    JD Speaks the truth.

    If you are a developer, then getting Security+ might be useful to start understanding some of the principles of InfoSec and of vulnerabilities. Then use it to hone your skills and become an expert in producing secure code. That will be a valuable skill and highly in demand.

    I must stress that S+ only scratches the surface.
