(ISC)²® (“ISC-squared”) the largest not-for-profit body of certified information and software security professionals worldwide with nearly 110,000 members, today announced that the American Council on Education’s College Credit Recommendation Service (ACE CREDIT®) has evaluated and recommended college credit for the Official (ISC)² CBK® Training Seminar for the Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP®). ACE, the major coordinating body for all the nation’s higher education institutions, seeks to provide leadership and a unifying voice on key higher education issues and to influence public policy through advocacy, research, and program initiatives.

“We’ve been making a concerted effort to enhance our educational offerings over the past few years,” said David Shearer, CISSP, PMP, CEO, (ISC)². “With the incredible work that our education department has been doing, led by Director of Education and Training Dr. Rae Hayward, HCISPP, (ISC)² is honored to have its CISSP course accredited by the American Council on Education. This accomplishment is dually beneficial for both students and the information security industry in that it provides college students with the opportunity to learn and prepare for the CISSP examination, while simultaneously earning credit towards their degree.”

ACE CREDIT helps adults gain academic credit for courses and examinations taken outside traditional degree programs. More than 2,000 colleges and universities consider ACE CREDIT recommendations in determining the applicability of coursework and examination results to their courses and degree programs.
