    I think if you are interested, you have to do your own research on ISACA website (www.isaca.org) in "CERTIFICATION" tab. That will give you details of every certification.

    This Google Hangouts video is pretty useful for what security cert you might like.

    It goes into CISSP vs. CASP vs. CISM.

    The video will detail some of the specifics and reasonings behind each one.

    It's all there in black and white. The "How to Become CISM Certified" page on the ISACA website has answers to all your questions. Hint: all you need is to pay, take the exam, and satisfy the work experience requirements.

    Anyone who pays can take the exam. That simple. Satisfying the experience requirement is another story.

    How to Become CISA Certified explains it clearly:
    It is important to note that many individuals choose to take the CISA exam prior to meeting the experience requirements.

    This practice is acceptable and encouraged although the CISA designation will not be awarded until all requirements are met.

    The work experience for CISA certification must be gained within the 10-year period preceding the application date for certification or within 5 years from the date of originally passing the exam. The CISA Application for Certification is available at Apply for CISA Certification. Note that candidates have 5 years from the passing date to apply for certification.

    There's no need to take any classes, training or anything. However you gain the knowledge required to master the objectives is up to you. A lot of people do self-study via ISACA's books such as the CISA Review Manual or the Questions, Answers & Explanations Manual, both available here. Other go to week long classes, other do review bootcamps. Again, up to you. ISACA doesn't impose any specific training requirement.
