CISSP or Certified Information System Security Professional is a globally recognized certification offered by the (ISC)² (International Information Systems Security Certification Consortium). The certification validates a candidate's ability and expertise in all fields of information security. CISSP certified professionals are called upon to define the design, architecture, controls, and management of highly secure business environments.
The (ISC)² calls CISSP the most-esteemed cyber security certification in the profession on a global scale, and there's no doubt about its widespread recognition in a variety of information security management roles. This type of industrywide acceptance is valuable for everyone who holds the designation. That's especially true for those seeking new roles in other regions of the U.S. and foreign countries. No matter where a cyber security management position is based, all competent employers will recognize the added value of a candidate with CISSP certification.
