About this course
The CCISO Program of the EC-Council has certified many of the world's top information security experts. The CCISO Advisory Board, a core group of senior information security professionals, helped by laying the groundwork for the program and establishing the topics that would be covered by the exam, body of knowledge, and training.
Some Board members worked as authors, some as exam writers, yet others as quality assurance testers, and still others as trainers.Each section of the curriculum was created with the aspiring CISO in mind, with the goal of passing on the expertise of seasoned experts to the next generation in the areas that are most important in the construction and management of a successful information security program.
The Certified CISO (CCISO) program is the first of its kind in terms of training and certification for information security executives at the highest levels.The CCISO focuses on the application of information security management principles from an executive management perspective, rather than on technical competence.For present and aspiring CISOs, the program was created by sitting CISOs.Candidates must complete the fundamental CCISO standards in order to sit for the CCISO exam and gain the certification.EC-Council Information Security Management (EISM) certification is available to candidates who do not yet meet the CCISO requirements but are interested in information security management.
Why should you take this course?

The CCISO curriculum integrates audit management, governance, information security controls, human capital management, strategic program planning, and the financial competence needed to operate a highly effective information security program.The CCISO Program's material assumes a high level of technical knowledge and focuses on applying technical knowledge to an information security executive's day-to-day job rather than on exclusively technical content.The CCISO strives to close the gap between the executive management skills required of CISOs and the technical skills possessed by many prospective CISOs.As a practitioner moves from mid-management to upper-level executive management positions, this might be a critical gap.Much of this is generally learnt through on-the-job training, but the CCISO Training Program can help you make the jump to the top of the information security management .

What is the CCISO Program?
The Certified Chief Information Security Officer program is the first of its kind certification that recognizes an individual’s accumulated skills in developing and executing an information security management strategy in alignment with organizational goals. C|CISO equips information security leaders with the most effective toolset to defend organizations from cyber-attacks. To rise to the role of the CISO, strong technical knowledge, and experience is more imperative now than ever before but it must be accompanied by the ability to communicate in business value. C|CISOs understand that their information security decisions often have a direct impact on their organization’s operational cost, efficiency, and agility. As organizations introduce new technologies, C|CISOs will develop and communicate a strategy to avoid the potential risks stemming from their implementation to the organization’s operations.
