Course Length: 5-days
The Certified Information Systems Security Officer course is designed for forward thinking security professionals that want the advanced skillset necessary to manage and consult businesses on information security.
The C)ISSO addresses the broad range of industry best practices, knowledge and skills expected of a security leader. The candidate will learn both the theory and the requirements for practical implementation of core security concepts, practices, monitoring and compliance. Through the use of a risk-based approach, a C)ISSO is able to implement and maintain cost-effective controls that are aligned with business requirements.
Whether you are responsible for the management of a Cyber Security team, a Security Officer, and IT auditor or Business Analyst, the C)ISSO course is the ideal way to increase knowledge, expertise, skill and credibility. The C)ISSO program standards are closely aligned with those of the ISO27001, NIST, CISM, and the CISSP, CBR exam objectives.
Additionally, the international author, Kevin Henry, who wrote the official ISC2 CISSP, also wrote C)ISSO work book and exam. Both C)ISSO and CISSP cover basically the same content with the exception that the C)ISSO focuses heavily on the Information Systems management modules (ex. How do I “do it,” when do I implement this control, and so forth..) versus covering subject matter in theory.
The National Security Agency has validated the C)ISSO for the following security standards:
- NSTISSI – 4011: National Training Standard for Information Systems Security (INFOSEC)
- CNSSI – 4012: National Information Assurance Training Standard for Senior Systems Managers
- NICCS approved
