Certified in Governance, Risk and Compliance (CGRC) (formerly CAP)
What is the CGRC certification?
The (ISC)² Certified in Governance, Risk and Compliance credential — formerly known as the Certified Authorization Professional (CAP) — validates your understanding and skills within the field of GRC. It confirms that you know how to assess risk, establish security requirements and create documentation using a broad range of security frameworks. It is ideal for U.S. government officials who manage information system security for the Department of Defense (DoD), and it meets the requirements of DoD Directive 8570. Private-sector individuals who manage risk will also find the credential valuable because it shows a firm grasp of aligning business objectives with risk management and regulatory compliance.
