Global certification partner for ISC Squared

ISC Squared : 29 October, 2009  (Company News)
Pearson VUE joins ISC-Squared for delivering computer based information security exams to IT professionals globally
(ISC)2, the not-for-profit company involved in educating and certifying information security professionals throughout their careers with more than 66,000 members worldwide, has signed a contract with Pearson VUE, an expert in secure high-stakes testing, to begin computer-based delivery of its Certified Secure Software Lifecycle Professional (CSSLPCM) exam sometime in 2010. Phasing in its other credential exams over the next three years, the CSSLP will be the first exam (ISC)2 will transition from paper-and-pencil delivery.

To meet growing demand for certified information security professionals, the CSSLP and subsequent exams will be available globally throughout the Pearson VUE-owned and -operated network of more than 250 Pearson Professional Centers, as well as Pearson VUE Authorized Test Center Select network and Pearson VUE Authorized Test Centers located on US military installations around the world. To reduce external testing variables, the testing process at all Pearson VUE centers is automated. All centers also include biometric collection, monitoring and other safeguards to ensure a consistent, secure testing experience for all candidates.

"(ISC)² requires a test delivery provider with a high-quality, secure test center network that offers our candidates a professional testing experience and a new level of service and accessibility," said W. Hord Tipton, CISSP-ISSEP, CAP, executive director for (ISC)².

Tipton continued, "Our relationship with Pearson VUE is an important investment in the future of our certification programs. It allows us to take advantage of technical advancements to offer our candidates more, conveniently located venues, as well as the ability to register for an exam online 24 hours a day, seven days a week, for any time a testing center is open. Also, candidates will no longer have to wait several weeks to receive notification of their test results."

"We are pleased to be chosen as the test delivery provider for an organization that sets the industry standard for security professionals," said Robert Whelan, president and chief executive officer, Pearson VUE. "Pearson VUE is committed to providing the most secure, high-quality testing environment for our clients' testing programs. As a company that knows and values security, (ISC)² is paying us a great compliment by entrusting us with its program. "
