      The CISM (Certified Information Systems Manager) is ISACA's
      (Information Systems Audit and Control Association) extension to its
      more widely known CISA (Certified Information Systems Auditor) (cf.
      BKCISAPG.RVW) designation. It basically covers the material addressed
      in the CISSP (Certified Information Systems Security Professional)
      security management domain, with additional material on incident
      response.

      The chapters in this book follow the five domains of the CISM.
      Chapter one deals with information security governance, also passing
      quickly over some of the areas of technical security controls. Risk
      management is addressed in chapter two, with a concentration on the
      NIST (US National Institute of Standards and Technology) risk
      assessment framework: an indication of the concentration on US
      standards in this work and certification. Information security
      program management, in chapter three, includes topics such as formal
      models, project management, and the system development life cycle.
      (There is a lack of clarity in some of the explanations of specific
      models that may lead readers into error.) Information security
      management, in chapter four, is even more of a grab bag, looking at US
      regulations, contracts, auditing, and security reviews. Chapter five
      covers incident response, disaster recovery, and forensics.

      The book also contains a set of questions. They are quite vague, and,
      if representative of the CISM itself, that certification is only
      looking for familiarity with topics.
