The Certified Chief Information Security Officer (CCISO) program is the first of its kind certification that recognizes an individual?s accumulated skills in developing and executing an information security management strategy in alignment with organizational goals. To rise to the role of the CISO, strong technical knowledge, and experience is more imperative now than ever before but must be accompanied by the ability to communicate the business value. CCISOs understand that their information security decisions often have a direct impact on their organization?s operational cost, efficiency, and agility. As organizations introduce new technologies, CCISOs will develop and communicate a strategy to avoid the potential risks stemming from their implementation to the organization?s operations.
CCISO equips information security leaders with the most effective toolset to defend organizations from cyber attacks.
