New relationship will help meet demand for trained cyber security professionals.

(ISC)²® (“ISC-squared”), the world’s largest information security professional body and administrators of the CISSP®, today announced it has appointed Fordham School of Professional and Continuing Studies (“Fordham”) as an (ISC)2 Official Training Provider for New York City. Fordham will offer (ISC)²® CBK® Review Seminar courses to (ISC)²® certification candidates.

“Fordham School of Professional Studies (PCS) is pleased to announce its new collaboration with (ISC)²® to offer CISSP training,” commented Isabelle Frank, dean, Fordham School of Professional and Continuing Studies. “Our week-long courses are staffed by professionals approved by (ISC)²® and are located in the heart of Manhattan at our Lincoln Center campus. This certification complements our undergraduate and graduate courses in cyber security, computer science, and data protection.”

Fordham School of Professional and Continuing Studies is dedicated to serving adult and non-traditional students with credit, non-credit, and degree programs offered at three locations in New York (Lincoln Center, Manhattan; Rose Hill, Bronx; and West Harrison, Westchester).

“With the dire shortage of trained information security professionals we’re facing globally, we applaud Fordham for doing their part to help meet this demand,” says W. Hord Tipton, CISSP-ISSEP, CAP, CISA, executive director, (ISC)²®. “Their efforts will provide a local education resource and help make certification a reality for information security professionals seeking (ISC)²® credentials, a critical piece of one’s professional profile.”

The CISSP is considered the Gold Standard of certifications for experienced management-level information security professionals worldwide, and (ISC)²’s Systems Security Certified Practitioner (SSCP®) is suitable for experienced cyber security professionals implementing security policy. The Certified Systems Security Lifecycle Professional (CSSLP®) validates an individual’s competency and experience in addressing security issues throughout the software development lifecycle. Advanced examinations are also offered for professionals holding the CISSP in three areas of concentration, including architecture, management and engineering.
