  • Overview

    The CCISO is for information security executives trying to be CISOs through improving their skills and learning to align information security programs with business goals and objectives. This program also supports existing CISOs to enhance their technical and management skills, as well as business procedures.

    The CCISO Program has certified leading information security professionals around the world. A core group of high-level information security executives, the CCISO Advisory Board, contributed by forming the foundation of the program and outlining the content that would be covered by the exam, body of knowledge, and training. Some members of the Board contributed as authors, others as exam writers, others as quality assurance checks, and still others as trainers. Each segment of the program was developed with the aspiring CISO in mind and looks to transfer the knowledge of seasoned professionals to the next generation in the areas that are most critical in the development and maintenance of a successful information security program.

    The Certified CISO (CCISO) program is the first of its kind training and certification program aimed at producing top-level information security executives. The CCISO does not focus solely on technical knowledge but on the application of information security management principles from an executive management point of view. The program was developed by sitting CISOs for current and aspiring CISOs.

  • Who Should Take This Course

    PREREQUISITES

    To sit for the exam after taking training, candidates must have five years of experience in three of the five CCISO Domains verified via the Exam Eligibility Application.

    The CCISO certification is not an entry-level program. To qualify for the program and examination, you must have a minimum of 5 years of prior experience in at least three of the five domains.

    The CCISO aims to bridge the gap between the executive management knowledge that CISOs need and the technical knowledge that many aspiring CISOs have. This can be a crucial gap as a 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 CCISO Training Program can be the key to a successful transition to the highest ranks of information security management. The Certified Chief Information Security Officer certification is also an approved baseline certification on DoD Directive 8570/ 8140.
