The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) has accredited the CISM certification program under ISO/IEC 17024:2003. Earning the CISM designation helps assure a positive reputation as a qualified IS manager professional, and because the CISM program certifies individuals who demonstrate proficiency in today's most sought after skills, employers prefer to hire and retain those who achieve and maintain their designation.
