Many companies are now requiring IT professionals to be certified in order to measure skills and demonstrate successful job performance. Certification programs have now established the standards for the global IT industry, and though most IT careers can lead to rapid advancement and high pay, if you have been certified you can have an advantage over competition.
The most important skills needed by today’s computer security professionals can be validated by having an International Information Systems Security Certification Consortium, or ( ISC)2 certification.
Security professional positions such as Network Security Specialist, Senior Security Engineer, Information Security Manager or a Chief Security Officer can benefit from CISSP® certification training. CISSP is a vendor-neutral certification that is globally recognized by major computer vendors, resellers and distributors.
To qualify to be a CISSP, applicants are required to subscribe to the (ISC)2 Code of Ethics and have at least five years of direct full-time security professional work experience in one or more of the ten domains of the (ISC)2 CISSP Common Body of Knowledge (CBK)*.
As an IT or IS professional, increasing your understanding of risk assessment and security is an ongoing process. Professionals often need up-to-the-minute skills to combat threats, prevent attacks and remedy unanticipated events - and CISSP® certification to back them up. With Villanova University’s IS Security Certificate Programs, you can get the skills to satisfy industry demands, and prepare for the certification you want - 100% online.
