CISSP — Certified Information Systems Security Professional
What is the CISSP certification?
The Certified Information Systems Security Professional, or CISSP certification, is overseen by the non-profit organization (ISC)² and validates your skills around designing, implementing and maintaining a cybersecurity program. It is the most requested certification in U.S. cybersecurity job openings. This is due to the broad range of material the CISSP covers, the on-the-job experience requirements and the CISSP endorsement requirement. This makes the CISSP an easy benchmark for hiring managers looking to confirm a certain level of cybersecurity knowledge and real-world experience in candidates.
