What is Certified Security Manager (CSM) Training & Certification?
The Certified Security Manager (CSM) is an advanced level security management training and certification for security professionals. The CSM certification validates a security professional’s knowledge and competency in 10 key domains of corporate security through an Advanced Security Management Training Program.
The CSM designation is awarded to those security professionals who have successfully fulfilled the performance criteria in the Advanced Security Management Training Program that consists of 3 months of live training and multiple practical assessment tests.
Why is it different from other certifications offered in the industry?
Various certifications offered in the industry are self-study-based and followed by a single assessment test with aggregate percentage.
To explain how it works, let’s assume a scenario between a candidate who scored 80% vs 79% in the certification assessment test for which the pass percentage is 80%.
Practically both candidates have the same level of knowledge but the single assessment test approach will fail the candidate who scores 79%.
This type of testing is only as good as our education system that does not offer practical value unless the candidate is already experienced and qualified. Also, the self-study does not help security professionals to enhance their practical knowledge as the candidate is limited to his/her limited experience or industry.
How is the CSM certification designation is achieved?
