EC-Council Chief Information Security Officer (CCISO)

Training Summary
EC-Council's CCISO Program has certified leading information security professionals around the world. The CCISO Advisory Board contributed by forming the foundation of the program and outlining the content that would be covered by the exam, body of knowledge and training. Some members of the Board contributed as authors, others as exam writers, others as quality assurance checks and still others as trainers. Each segment of the program was developed with the aspiring CISO in mind and looks to transfer the knowledge of seasoned professionals to the next generation in the areas that are most critical in the development and maintenance of a successful information security program.The Certified CISO (CCISO) program is the first of its kind training and certification program aimed at producing top-level information security executives. The CCISO does not focus solely on technical knowledge but on the application of information security management principles from an executive management point of view. The program was developed by sitting CISOs for current and aspiring CISOs.In order to sit for the CCISO exam and earn the certification, candidates must meet the basic CCISO requirements. Candidates who do not yet meet the CCISO requirements but are interested in information security management can pursue the EC-Council Information Security Management (EISM) certification.
There are no prerequisites for this course.
5 Days/Lecture & Labs
The CCISO certification is not an entry-level program. To qualify for the program and examination, you must have a minimum of 5 years of prior experience in at least three of the five domains. The CCISO aims to bridge the gap between the executive management knowledge that CISOs need and the technical knowledge that many aspiring CISOs have. This can be a crucial gap as a practitioner endeavors to move from mid-management to upper, executive management roles. Much of this is traditionally learned as on the job training, but the CCISO Training Program can be the key to a successful transition to the highest ranks of information security management. The Certified Chief Information Security Officer certification is also an approved baseline certification on DoD Directive 8570/ 8140.
