ISC2 CGRCThe ISC2 Governance, Risk and Compliance Certification (CGRC) examination and training updates are LIVE! In the most recent ISC2 Cybersecurity Workforce Study, respondents ranked GRC second (35%), behind only cloud computing security, when it came to skills that are most in-demand for security professionals who are looking to advance their careers through new jobs and promotions.

Fresh off a Job Task Analysis (JTA), the latest CGRC Exam Outline has been updated to reflect today's industry standards, best practices, terminology and more. All ISC2 examinations are evaluated tri-annually. During the JTA portion of this process, ISC2 members participate in sessions and surveys to support the ongoing development of exam content. This process solidifies that candidates are preparing to take on the topic areas most relevant to the roles and responsibilities of today’s practicing cybersecurity professionals.

In addition to daily activities, the CGRC examination was revised from a global perspective to consider international terminology, frameworks and regulations. These adaptations will help ensure certification holders have a more robust understanding of compliance on a universal scale.
