CISM Experience Waiver
I’ve been on the website and I can’t see if a Degree in computing would satisfy 1 year or my MCSA or CEH
Anyone help or knows what we can use as experience waiver
4. Work Experience
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
. The work experience 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 following security-related certifications and information systems management experience can be used to satisfy the indicated amount of information security work experience.
Certified Information Systems Auditor (CISA) in good standing
Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP) in good standing
Post-graduate degree in information security or a related field (e.g., business administration, information systems, information assurance)
One full year of information systems management experience
One full year of general security management experience
Skill-based security certifications (e.g., SANS Global Information Assurance Certification (GIAC), Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer (MCSE), CompTIA Security +, Disaster Recovery Institute Certified Business Continuity Professional (CBCP), ESL IT Security Manager)
Completion of an information security management program at an institution aligned with the Model Curriculum
The experience substitutions will not satisfy any portion of the 3-year information security management work experience requirement.
Exception: Two years as a full-time university instructor teaching the management of information security can be substituted for every 1 year of information security experience.
Doesn't sound like your MCSA, CEH, or general computing degree would qualify for any CISM experience waiver. However, you could look into a 1 year waiver for information systems management/security experience.
Certs: CISSP, CISA, PMP
