CISSP + CCSP: The Power Duo of Cybersecurity Certifications

CISSP + CCSP: The Power Duo of Cybersecurity Certifications

As cyberthreats escalate and bad actors grow more sophisticated in their attacks, a robust team of cybersecurity experts is imperative. Yet talent is scarce. Research shows the cybersecurity workforce needs to grow by 65% to meet global demand.

As the world’s premier cybersecurity certifications, CISSP and CCSP empower professionals with the highest level of expertise in information and cloud security. For organizations, building a strong defense with both credentials on their teams raises their security posture in the eyes of clients and stakeholders. When hiring managers see CISSP or CCSP on your resume, it moves you to the top of the stack.

Number 1 in Demand and Growth

CISSP, the most globally recognized and sought-after cybersecurity certification, is the most required cybersecurity certification by hiring managers searching for candidates on LinkedIn. Consistently voted “Best Professional Certification Program” by SC Magazine, CISSP recognizes information security leaders who understand both cybersecurity strategy and hands-on implementation.

CCSP recognizes IT and information security leaders who have the advanced knowledge and expertise to apply best practices to cloud security architecture, design, operations and service orchestration in any cloud environment. As doing business in the cloud becomes the standard for companies around the globe, the surge in demand for CCSP-certified professionals continues to keep pace.

The Value of Vendor Neutral

CISSP and CCSP, the leading vendor-neutral cyber and cloud security credentials on the market, identify the most highly skilled specialists in cybersecurity today. Professionals who hold CISSP or CCSP, and organizations with both on their teams, are substantially better protected and more qualified to anticipate and mitigate cyberattacks.

In combination with vendor-specific certifications, CISSP and CCSP build the end-to-end foundational knowledge that extends your technical skills and allows you to apply your broad security expertise across platforms. Vendor-neutral certification makes you highly employable across industries and more adaptable as you grow in your career.
