Let’s talk about the third domain of ISACA’s CISM, Information Security Program Development and Management.
This domain is important for candidates who are interested in CISM as it allows us to understand how to create, maintain, and manage information security programmes, which helps us formulate information security strategy.
This domain will teach you concepts such as:
Security program frameworks, scope and charter
Alignment of security program with business processes and goals
Information security frameworks
Security program management and administrative activities
Assessments and audits, both internal and external
Security management metrics that tell the story
Information Security Program is vital:
Companies can manage information security programs to protect their information assets, comply with regulatory requirements, and minimize legal and liability exposure.
Organizations must test candidates’ ability to create effective management plans because of the importance of Information Security Programs. A well-designed plan will ensure acceptable levels of information security and a reasonable cost. Candidates are tested on their ability to plan, manage, implement, and monitor the security program. Candidates are proven capable of transforming the strategy into reality through their experience in this area.
The Objectives of Information Security Program Development and Management
Candidates will need to be able to identify the resources they require in order to achieve the organization’s goals. They will need to have a solid understanding of security programs from the beginning. You will need to be able to understand the many requirements and aspects of program design, implementation, management, and evaluation.
The following security program elements should be familiarized with by individuals:
A security program must include the implementation of an information security plan. The program must be supportive of the organization’s goals and well-aligned with them.
It must be well-designed with management and stakeholder support.
Effective metrics must be developed for both the program design and execution stages, as well as the ongoing security program.
