ECCouncil C|CISO Certification

Recently ECCouncil has launched a new security certification aimed at training current and the next generation of Chief Information Security Officers (CISO).

The certification focuses on five core domains:

  • Governance (Policy, Legal & Compliance)
  • IS Management Controls and Auditing Management (Projects, Technology & Operations)
  • Management – Projects and Operations
  • Information Security Core Competencies
  • Strategic Planning & Finance

Now although I think any certification is good to have on your CV, I don’t believe we can train people with one certification and then put them into a postion of CISO and expect them to be successful.  A successful CISO should combine years of experience in all areas of the security industry with relevant security certifications to make the all important ‘package’.
