The Certified CISO (C|CISO) course has certified leading information security professionals around the world and is the first of its kind training and certification program aimed at producing top-level Information Security Leaders. The CCISO does not focus solely on technical knowledge but on the application of information security management principles from an executive management point of view. The program was developed by seasoned CISOs for current and aspiring CISOs.
C|CISO Material assumes a high-level understanding of technical topics and doesn’t spend much time on strictly technical information, but rather on the application of technical knowledge to an information security executive’s day-to-day work. The C|CISO aims to bridge the gap between the executive management knowledge that CISOs need and the technical knowledge that many aspiring CISOs have. This can be a crucial gap as a practitioner endeavors to move from mid-management to upper, executive management roles. Much of this is traditionally learned as on the job training, but the C|CISO Training Program can be the key to a successful transition to the highest ranks of information security management.

The 5 Domains
EC-Council’s C|CISO Program covers the 5 Domains of executive information security management. The content of each domain was developed by sitting CISOs for current and aspiring CISOs.
The C|CISO Exam was developed by practicing CISOs and based on the real-world scenarios professionals from across industries have faced while securing some of the most prestigious organizations in the world. The C|CISO Exam is available at Pearson VUE testing centers around the world. Applicant’s knowledge in all five of the C|CISO Domains will be tested on the exam that focuses on scenario-based questions and requires applicants to apply their real-world experience in order to answer successfully. To that end, in order to qualify to sit for the C|CISO Exam after taking the CCISO class, applicants have at least 5 years of information security experience in 3 or more of the CCISO Domains. Any student lacking this experience may take the ECCouncil Information Security Management exam and earn the EISM certification. In order to sit for the C|CISO exam and earn the certification, candidates must meet the basic C|CISO requirements. Candidates who do not yet meet the C|CISO requirements but are interested in information security management can pursue the EC-Council Information Security Management (EISM) certification.
