If you are looking for the “gotta have it” cybersecurity course, then the Certified Information Systems Security Officer is for you. The C)ISSO will prepare you with a broad range of knowledge and skills required of a security officer. However, these skills can be applied across a broad range of role-based careers. You will learn theories in security concepts, practices, monitoring, and compliance in IS management.
A C)ISSO is able to implement and maintain cost-effective security controls that are closely aligned with business and industry standards. The C)ISSO certification course is an ideal way to increase knowledge, expertise, and skill for managers, auditors, and INFOSEC professionals.
At Mile2 we consider the C)ISSO to be one of our flagship courses. The things you learn in this course can be applied to management, prevention teams, and recovery professionals.
