WHAT IS CISSP?
Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP) is an independent information security certification governed by the not-for-profit International Information Systems Security Certification Consortium, (ISC)2.
The CISSP was the first credential in the field of information security, accredited by the ANSI (American National Standards Institute) to ISO (International Standards Organization) Standard 17024:2003. It is approved by the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) in both their Information Assurance Technical (IAT) and Managerial (IAM) categories.
The CISSP has been adopted as a baseline for the U.S. National Security Agency's ISSEP program. CISSP certification is not only an objective measure of excellence, but a globally recognized standard of achievement. This Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP) is a highly sought after certification by those who are looking to further their career in Information Security.
