“The great thing about the CISM certification is
that it demonstrates the fact that you have to really
understand the business. Some of the areas of CISM are
demonstrated knowledge of risk management and program
management. Therefore, in order to earn a CISM you actually
have to verify that you do understand business requirements
as well as IT requirements.”
-Johnathan Patrick, CISA, CGEIT
If a person comes to me and asks if she or he should become
CISM certified professional, I would answer to him or to her
that this would mean a very important step in his or her career.
Having a CISM certification offers credibility, not only for my
job, not only for my work— Having a CISM brings credibility to
the company who I’m working for.
-Marcello Melro, CISA, CISM, Business Solutions Consultant, Siemens
The CISM certification has helped me from the vice president
level down to the frontline IT level. The knowledge I have
is applicable globally, across multiple countries.
-Linda Dawson, CISM, IT Security Manager, 3M Company
As an IT governance professional, it’s my
responsibility to ensure that the organization
understands the part that IT plays in the achievement
of the organization objectives, and to ensure that the
IT strategic plan is aligned with the business plan.
As a CGEIT, I believe that opportunities are endless.
It’s an incredibly valuable certification and well-recognized
within my organization. The level of knowledge and experience
that the CGEIT demonstrates that I have is well-respected by
the organization and particularly by the executive management.
-Howard Nicholson, CISA, CGEIT, Business Analyst, Risk and Audit, City of Salisbury (Australia)
Becoming CGEIT certified will give you
recognition for your work [in the governance
of enterprise IT]. More importantly, you become
part of an elite group, which has done the best
practices in implementation and governance.
-Ravi Mankikar, CISA, CGEIT, General Manager, The Shamrao Vithal Co-operative Bank, Ltd.
There is a growing demand for the expertise
in the area of IT governance. I decided to
pursue the CGEIT program because I realized
the value of this program, the contents, and
the value which I could give my clients because
of this certification. My clients now understand
that I am a professional that can help them with
the IT governance they were looking for.
