  experience or one year of information security experience can be substituted for

  one year of information systems security management experience.

  (e.g. computer science, accounting, information systems security) may be

  substituted for one year of information systems auditing, control or security

  experience.
- 60 to 120 completed university semester credit hours (the equivalent of a two-

  year or four-year degree), can be substituted for one or two years, respectively,

  of experience. Even if multiple degrees have been eared, a maximum of 2 years

  can be claimed.
- A bachelor’s or master’s degree from a university that enforces the ISACA

  claimed.

  accredited university can be substituted for one year of experience.

Experience must have been gained within the ten-year period preceding the date of the application for certification. Candidates have five years from the date of their exam in which to apply. After five years, their exam score is void. It is important to note that many individuals choose to take the CISM exam prior to meeting the experience requirements.
