Certified Chief Information Security Officer (CCISO)

Programme Description

The CICISO Certification is an industry-leading, security certification program that recognizes the real-world experience necessary to succeed at the highest executive levels of information security. Bringing together all the components required for C-Level position, the CICISO program combines audit management, governance, IS controls, human capital management, strategic program development, and the financial expertise vital to leading a highly successful information security program. The job of the CISO is far too important to be learned by trial and error. Executive-level management skills are not areas that should be learned on the job. The material in the CICISO Program assumes a high-level understanding of technical topics and doesn’t spend much time on strictly technical information, but rather on the application of technical knowledge to an information security executive’s day-to-day work. The CICISO aims to bridge the gap between the executive management knowledge that CISOS need and the technical knowledge that many sitting and aspiring CISOs have. This can be a crucial gap as practitioner endeavors to move from mid-management to upper executive management roles. Much of this is traditionally learned as on the job training, but the CICISO Training Program can be the key to a successful transition to the highest ranks of information security management.
