Wolcott Group's initial HISP Certification course scheduled for first week in October.

On behalf of the HISP Institute, I congratulate Wolcott Group. Being the first to offer this training in Ohio shows their commitment to the industry and their clients. This effectively raises the bar for excellence in their information security offerings.

Wolcott Group announced today they have become the first firm in Ohio, and only the seventh in the U.S., to be authorized to provide training for the Holistic Information Security Practitioner (HISP) certification. The first HISP certification course to be held by Wolcott Group is scheduled for October 1st through 5th, 2007 in their Fairlawn, Ohio headquarters.

The Holistic Information Security Practitioner (HISP) training and certification program is designed to teach attendees how to more efficiently achieve multiple regulatory objectives for information security and privacy with a unified approach to IT best practice frameworks. Endorsed by British Standards Institute (BSI) Americas, the world's leading standards and certification organization, the HISP certification course is the only educational curriculum available today that teaches how to integrate ISO 27002/27001 with COBIT, COSO, ITIL, and multiple regulatory requirements pertaining to information security and privacy.

The HISP Certification program is managed by the HISP Institute and the training component was created by Atlanta-based eFortresses, Inc. to address the current shortage of skilled information security and compliance professionals. Taiye Lambo of eFortresses and the HISP Institute extended his congratulations, "On behalf of the HISP Institute, I congratulate Wolcott Group. Being the first to offer this training in Ohio shows their commitment to the industry and their clients. This effectively raises the bar for excellence in their information security offerings."
