Description

Now in its 27th year, (ISC)² has expanded from a handful of passionate volunteers to the largest not-for-profit membership body of certified cyber, information, software and infrastructure security professionals worldwide. Frequently listed at the top of IT-related certifications, the Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP) validates that information security leaders possess the breadth of knowledge, skills and experience needed to credibly architect and manage the security posture of their organizations. Earning the CISSP is a recognized accomplishment, career differentiator, and in-demand for industry jobs. In fact, a 2015 Burning Glass Cybersecurity Jobs Report found that nearly 50,000 job postings requested candidates holding the credential. CISSP is an information security “certification of firsts” – first to meet ANSI/ISO/IEC standards; first to mandate high-quality, auditable continuing professional education credits; and one of the firsts included as a job condition in the U.S. DoD 8570.1 matrix. A growing international network of more than 104,000 CISSPs take advantage of exclusive member benefits, including a multitude of free continuing education, career enhancement and leadership opportunities. As the recognized standard of competence, the CISSP Common Body of Knowledge (CBK) is the best reference available and reflects up-to-date, relevant topics in the ever-changing field of information security. Through the CISSP, credential holders develop an in-depth understanding of how to apply concepts of risk assessment/analysis, data classification and security awareness. CISSPs emerge as experts on the structures, transmission methods/transport formats and security measures used to ensure data confidentiality, integrity and availability. CISSPs are well positioned to justify the need for a security initiative, and provide strong leadership and support in the event of a crisis. (ISC)²’s rigorous annual continuing professional education requirements ensure that CISSPs remain current, competitive and prepared to protect their organization from the cyber threats of today and tomorrow.
