SSCP® - For Organizations

What is the SSCP? 

The Systems Security Certified Practitioner (SSCP) is especially designed to help employers identify and qualify information security practitioners with proven technical ability to implement, monitor and administer IT infrastructure in accordance with information security policies and procedures that ensure data confidentiality, integrity and availability.

(ISC)² credential holders are part of an experienced group of professionals who openly share their experience, ideas, tools and knowledge so all can benefit. They are committed to their field and staying current with evolving industry best practices and technologies through continuing professional education. In short, SSCPs represent the kind of experienced and committed technical practitioners needed to defend organizations’ information assets.

How will the SSCP benefit my employees and my organization? 

SSCPs have already gained experience in the industry and met a practical knowledge standard. When you see an (ISC)² credential on a resume, you know the candidate has the know-how reflected by credential and the tenacity to live up to it.

  • SSCPs increase organizational understanding and implementation of information security best practices, as indicated by the (ISC)² CBK, the premier resource for professionals worldwide
  • SSCPs improve information security coherence throughout the organization by speaking the same language across disciplines and having cross-departmental perspectives
  • Organizations such as the DOD now require certifications for their information security personnel. If you are a service provider or sub-contractor you will need staff with these credentials
  • SSCPs are required to acquire CPE credits every year to maintain their certification. This means that the candidate will continue their education as new challenges manifest themselves, new solutions are created and new technologies are developed
  • SSCP certifications demonstrate a candidate’s knowledge of standards, ability to practice a code of ethics, and willingness to commit to a career in the information security field
  • The SSCP is an internationally recognized qualification as opposed to a regionally recognized qualification
