Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP)

Information Security has become a critical part of virtually every IT organization, and that growth is expected to continue. The demand for information security professionals is equally strong, with a recent report stating "56% of cyber security jobs require CISSP”. The CISSP credential demonstrates in-depth technical knowledge and experience that employers and other industry professionals recognize.

Earning the CISSP is considered by many to be a must have for cyber security professionals and for those seeking to specialize in information security. It is also of very high value for IT professionals in other roles who are involved in information security or for those wanting to broaden their skills.
