As the rapidly evolving healthcare industry faces increasing challenges to keeping personal health information protected, there is a growing need to ensure knowledgeable and credentialed security and privacy practitioners are in place to protect this sensitive information.

The remaining one year of experience can be optionally in any of the remaining three HCISPP domains (Information Governance and Risk Management, Information Risk Assessment, and Third-Party Risk Management), and does not have to be related to the healthcare industry.
