TOP 3 REASONS TO TAKE C|CISO

  • C|CISO WAS DESIGNED BY CISOs
    For CISOs and aspiring CISOs to create true leaders. The CCISO Advisory Board is made up of CISOs from government and private sectors spanning industries and areas of expertise. Security leaders from Amtrak, HP, the City of San Francisco, Lennar, the Center for Disease Control, universities, and consulting firms all contributed their vast knowledge to creating this program to address the lack of leadership training in information security.  
  • C|CISO IS NOT FOCUSED ON THE TECHNICAL ASPECTS OF THE CISO JOB ROLE
    That material is covered by many other certifications on the market. The content of the CCISO Program is from the perspective of executive management. The training program is built around responding to scenarios written by our contributing CISOs drawing on their experiences leading some of the world's top organizations' security programs. During the CCISO workshop, students will be challenged to develop a business continuity plan for a company in a given industry and situation, use metrics to communicate risk for different audiences, and describe how to align a given security program with the goals of the business in which it resides, among many other exercises.
  • C|CISO COVERS STRATEGIC AND FINANCIAL MANAGEMENT
    Like no other program on the market. Recent surveys suggest that other C-Level executives do not view the CISO as a true peer. In order to become true leaders in their organizations, IS professionals are required to have a higher business acumen than has ever been required previously. The CCISO program dives deep into how security should be injected into the procurement process and how a CISO should manage budgets and assets - vital skills and knowledge that many in the profession lack.
