CISM: Work Experience

Hi, I am getting started to prepare for the CISM exam.
I have been working as the Dir. of IT for my company (small business) which generally deals with Government clients.

Reviewing the application, I think I can get more than 70% of the boxes checked and verified by my CEO.
I wear multiple hats since we are not a big company.

Since it specifically mentions experience in IT security, would Dir. of IT considered not suitable as the job experience for CISM?

Thanks in advance.

    "IT security" is quite broad. I have the same title as you and was able to take (and pass) the exam in 2011. Go for it!

    I am going for June 8 Exam already register last week.

    As long as you have working experience more than 5 years and wearing multiple hats it should be sufficient......

    Thank you for your kind replies.

    The application reads so strict and dry so wanted to make sure!

    Thanks again!
