SSCP® - Why Certify

People are the Key to a Secure Organization

Technological solutions alone cannot protect an organization's critical information assets. Employers demanding qualified information security staff give their organizations a leading edge by providing the highest standard of security for their customers', employees', stakeholders' and organizational information assets. (ISC)²®, the only not-for-profit body charged with maintaining, administering and certifying information security professionals via the compendium of industry best practices, the (ISC)² CBK®, is the premier resource for information security professionals worldwide.
