The Certified CISO (CCISO) Program is an elite program designed to produce top-level information security leaders by concentrating on both technical skills and information security management strategies by the executive management’s goals. CCISO arms information security executives with the right weapons to prevent possible cyber-attacks from arising and harming an organization. To become a CISO, one must have the technical knowledge and must incorporate specific skills such as building and maintaining organization’s aims and strategy. The program was developed with the enthusiastic CISO in mind, focusing on the most critical aspects of an information security program.
The foundation and outline of the CCISO program comprise three elements—Training, Body of Knowledge, and the CCISO exam—made by a core group of high-level information security executives, the CCISO Advisory Board, exam writers, quality checkers, and trainers.
