Because the world is becoming global in terms how business is conducted, it’s important that companies and individuals understand that what they do has a global impact. And so, as I look at what I want to do in my career, and as companies look at what they want in their employees, I see that they want people that are able speak globally. The CISM presents that global impact. So when I travel the world and I meet with Fortune 500 companies that have a global presence, my CISM is credible no matter where I go.

I believe the CISM certification 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.
