Salt Lake City, Utah (PRWEB) December 21, 2012
Philip Granere has been working for leading technology firms for over 17 years, and just this last year obtained his Certified Ethical Hacker certificate as well.
"I'm very excited to have this certificate. In this day and age it is crucial to have qualified and certified individuals managing and directing your information security," said Phil Granere.
The push for this credential is also coming from the U.S. Department of Defense 8570.1 Directive, which requires all government and contract employees working on DoD IT projects to carry an approved certification for their particular job classification.
CISSP certification is usually for mid and senior management IT security positions. This certification is offered through (ISC)2, the not-for-profit consortium that offers IT security certifications and training.
"This was not an easy exam. You must possess a minimum of five years of direct full-time security work experience in two or more of the 10 (ISC)2 information security domains (CBK), and agree to abide by their codes-of-ethics and policy for continuous education. In addition, they need to pass the exam with a scaled score of 700 points or greater out of 1000 possible points. The exam is multiple-choice, consisting of 250 questions with four options each, to be answered over a period of six hours," said Phil Granere.
