Management of information security concepts such as strategic alignment, financial planning, and executive leadership can all be crucial gaps as a mid-manager endeavors to move to upper, executive management roles.
Pune, India (PRWEB) July 28, 2015
The EC-Council Global CISO Summit 2015 India will see the launch of the prestigious C|CISO certification live training in India. The CCISO program was designed and developed exclusively to create Information Security leaders. The trainer for the prospective InfoSec leaders will be Mr. Burgess Cooper, Partner, Ernst & Young Global. Mr. Cooper is a perfect fit for the CCISO program as he brings his years of executive information security experience to instructing his class. His in-depth knowledge of governance programs, audit management, strategic business alignment, risk management and mitigation, etc. will infuse the class material with the information that ambitious information security professionals need to grow their careers.
The C|CISO certification is a high-end certification designed exclusively for InfoSec professionals who perform or aspire to perform the role of a Chief Information Security Officer. Material in the C|CISO program assumes a high-level understanding of technical topics and doesn’t spend much time on strictly technical information, but rather on the application of technical knowledge to an information security executive’s day-to-day work. The C|CISO aims to bridge the gap between the executive management knowledge that CISOs need and the technical knowledge that many aspiring CISOs have.
Management of information security concepts such as strategic alignment, financial planning, and executive leadership can all be crucial gaps as a mid-manager endeavors to move to upper, executive management roles. The C|CISO Training Program can be the key to successful transition to the highest ranks of information security management. In order to qualify to sit for the C|CISO Exam, applicants must be approved by EC-Council in order to verify that they have at least five years of information security management experience in each of the five C|CISO Domains. Applications with experience in three or less of the C|CISO Domains must first take authorized CCISO training before attempting the exam. Candidates with less experience may enter the associate C|CISO Program before working their way to the full C|CISO Certification.
