Systems Security Certified Practitioner seminar for Ireland

ISC Squared : 16 September, 2008  (New Product)
Certification review seminar to be held by (ISC)2 in Ireland for the certification of professionals in IT security
(ISC)2 has announced an agreement with the Irish Computer Society (ICS) to host the first Official (ISC)2 Systems Security Certified Practitioner (SSCP) CBK Review Seminar in Ireland. Providing a comprehensive review of information systems security concepts and industry best practices at the practitioner level, the program supports individuals seeking the SSCP credential.

Formed in 2000, the SSCP is designed to validate a candidate's mastery of the technical implementation side of information security systems and their ability to collaborate with information security managers and executives that write policy. Among the first information technology credentials to be accredited under the ISO/IEC 17024 Standard, the SSCP is complementary to vendor-specific certifications that validate detailed knowledge of a network system.

Jim Friars, CEO of the Irish Computer Society stated: "We are delighted to be working with (ISC)2 to bring this course to Ireland. This is the first time the course has been scheduled by the Irish Computer Society, who continuously promotes and encourages the development of professional IT knowledge and skills. We are pleased it has become an addition to our range of courses on offer and advise anyone who is intending on sitting their SSCP exams this year to seriously consider attending this seminar".

"The SSCP offers flexibility for the professionals in IT roles, who have operational responsibilities for information security and who would like to supplement their existing skills or advance their progress on the information security career path," says Richard Nealon, CISSP, SSCP, Information Security Assurance Reporting Manager with AIB Group and member of the (ISC)2 Board of Directors. "I foresee significant growth in SSCP over the next ten years, and welcome the Irish Computer Society's support for this important credential which continues to grow in credibility as a well-respected certification in Information Security proficiency within the IT community."

SSCP addresses the growing prioritisation of secure computing practice and subsequent expansion of information security disciplines across IT and business roles. It is developed by the same organisation that maintains the globally recognised Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP), which reflects broad practical knowledge of information security management. The SSCP validates a greater depth of technical knowledge while offering the same portability of skills across commercial products and international borders. To obtain the SSCP, candidates must have at least one cumulative year of relevant work experience in one or more of the seven domains of the SSCP CBK: access controls; analysis and monitoring; cryptography; networks and telecommunications; malicious code; risk, response, and recovery; and security operations and administration. They must also be endorsed by an (ISC)2 credential holder, abide by the (ISC)2 Code of Ethics and earn 60 continuing professional education (CPE) credits every three years. Common job titles held by SSCP credentialed personnel include information security/assurance practitioner, systems and network administrator, security manager, security analyst, and information security technician.

The first SSCP CBK Review Seminar in Ireland will be taking place from the 8th to the 10th October at the Irish Computer Society offices. The Irish Computer Society members can avail of a 10% discount off the cost of this course.
