Frequently Asked Questions

The Certified Chief Information Security Officer program is the first of its kind certification that recognizes an individual’s accumulated skills in developing and executing an information security management strategy in alignment with organizational goals. C|CISO equips information security leaders with the most effective toolset to defend organizations from cyber-attacks. To rise to the role of the CISO, strong technical knowledge, and experience is more imperative now than ever before but it must be accompanied by the ability to communicate in business value. C|CISOs understand that their information security decisions often have a direct impact on their organization's operational cost, efficiency, and agility. As organizations introduce new technologies, C|CISOs will develop and communicate a strategy to avoid the potential risks stemming from their implementation to the organization's operations.

The five CCISO Domains are:

  • Domain 1 - Governance (Policy, Legal, and Compliance).
  • Domain 2 - IS Management Controls and Audit Management.
  • Domain 3: Management of Projects, Technology, and Operations.
  • Domain 4: Information Security Core Concepts.
  • Domain 5: Strategic Planning and Finance.

No! In most high-level information security management jobs, each of the 5 CCISO Domains is part of each day. The five years can and usually do overlap.

No! If you do not meet the minimum requirements for the CCISO Exam, that doesn’t mean you can’t take training. Anyone can take the CCISO course, but only those who qualify to take the CCISO Exam will be issued an exam voucher. Students who do not have the years required can take the EC-Council Information Security Manager (EISM) exam after CCISO training.
