Posted on January 5, 2015 in Articles | by

Security professionals around the world recognize the Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP) credential as the field’s premier certification program. CISSP certification is an almost mandatory rite of passage in the career of information security specialists and a prerequisite for many advanced roles in the profession. Earning the credential requires demonstrating a combination of experience and knowledge across a wide range of material.

The International Information Systems Security Certification Consortium ((ISC)2) administers the CISSP program worldwide.
