I'm humbled to announce, that I have just passed the EC Council Chef Information Security Officer exam and become EC Council CISO certified.
It was a hard exam with 250 questions and 4 hours’ time. Even though , I have a master’s degree in the Information Security Area and completing my PhD and working in the field answering 250 questions at one go was not easy at all. Yes, I passed with 95% but , after few hours I started to think twice my answers.
EC-Council’s CCISO Program has certified leading information security professionals around the world. A core group of high-level information security executives, the CCISO Advisory Board, contributed by forming the foundation of the program and outlining the content that would be covered by the exam, body of knowledge, and training. Some members of the Board contributed as authors, others as exam writers, others as quality assurance checks, and still others as trainers. Each segment of the program was developed with the aspiring CISO in mind and looks to transfer the knowledge of seasoned professionals to the next generation in the areas that are most critical in the development and maintenance of a successful information security program.
The Certified CISO (CCISO) program is the first of its kind training and certification program aimed at producing top-level information security executives. The CCISO does not focus solely on technical knowledge but on the application of information security management principles from an executive management point of view. The program was developed by sitting CISOs for current and aspiring CISOs.
In order to sit for the CCISO exam and earn the certification, candidates must meet the basic CCISO requirements. Candidates who do not yet meet the CCISO requirements but are interested in information security management can pursue the EC-Council Information Security Management (EISM) certification.
The EC-Council CCISO Body of Knowledge covers all five the CCISO Information Security Management Domains in depth and was written by seasoned CISOs for current and aspiring CISOs.
Domain 1 covers the Policy, Legal, and Compliance aspects of Governance.
Domain 2 delves into the all-important topic of audit management from the CISO’s perspective and also covers IS controls.
Domain 3 covers the Role of the CISO from a Project and Operations Management perspective.
Domain 4 summarizes the technical aspects that CISOs manage in their day-to-day jobs, but from an executive standpoint.
Domain 5 is all about Strategic Planning and Finance – crucial areas for C-Level executives to understand in order to succeed and drive information security throughout their organizations.
