Why study this course

EC-Council’s Certified Chief Information Security Officer (CCISO) certification is designed for information security professionals who want to advance their careers as a CISO or other executive-level security career path. In the CCISO program, cybersecurity leaders hone their knowledge and learn how to integrate information security initiatives with business needs by aligning to the critical goals and objectives of an organisation. Existing CISOs are also encouraged to participate in this program to strengthen their security program knowledge, understand current technology principles, and sharpen their business insight.

The CCISO program has empowered information security professionals across the globe. EC-Council developed the CCISO certification by leveraging the knowledge of a core group of deeply experienced information security executives within the CCISO Advisory Board. These seasoned professionals built the program’s foundation and outlined the content covered in the CCISO exam, body of knowledge, and training program. Members of the Board contributed as authors, exam writers, and instructors. They also provided continuous quality assurance through periodic materials reviews. Each segment of the CCISO Program was developed in order to move a security professional’s career into the realm of executive leadership.

Through the CCISO program, EC-Council will transfer the knowledge of experienced professionals to you, the next generation of leadership, by focusing on the most critical competencies required to develop and maintain a successful information security portfolio. The CCISO program is a first-of its-kind training and certification course that aims to produce cybersecurity executives of the highest calibre and ethics. The CCISO curriculum — developed by security executives for current and aspiring executives — provides an upper management viewpoint that incorporates information security management principles, business acumen, and general technical knowledge.
