Clearwater, FL, Jan. 24, 2018 – (ISC)² today announced that its Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP®) cybersecurity certification has been named a finalist in the SC Awards 2018 for exemplary professional leadership in cybersecurity. The CISSP was acknowledged as Best Professional Certification Program in the Professional Award category of the SC Awards. Winners will be announced at the SC Awards ceremony on April 17, 2018 in San Francisco.
“In an age where threats are ever-evolving, it is reassuring to know that one true constant is the commitment of dedicated information security professionals, as best exemplified by our SC Media Awards finalists,” said Illena Armstrong, VP, editorial, SC Media. “These inspiring innovators have set a high bar for their industry peers, as they continue to protect the world from attacks and vulnerabilities that imperil our security, privacy, and digital infrastructure. The year 2017 brought us WannaCry ransomware infections, the rise of cryptominers, and bugs like Broadpwn and BlueBorne that affected billions of devices. Whatever threats rear their ugly heads in 2018 and beyond, our finalists will be ready to act.”
Now in its 21st year, SC Awards is recognized as the industry gold standard of accomplishment for cybersecurity professionals, products and services. Winners in the Professional Award category are selected by an expert panel of judges and recognize the most talented cybersecurity professionals from end-user companies. Judges conducted in-depth analysis and considered many factors – such as applicable research, analyst reports and/or product reviews – to narrow down the field of hundreds of submissions to just the top finalists.
“This recognition is a direct reflection of the inspiring work that all the cybersecurity professionals who have earned the CISSP do every day to make the cyber world a safer place,” said (ISC)² CEO David Shearer, CISSP. “We’re honored by the incredible reputation the CISSP has earned around the world over the last 20 years as one of the leading, most sought-after cybersecurity certifications.”
