C)ISSO Certified Information Systems Security Officer

Information and data security are in the news on what seems like a daily basis. Multiple hacks and attacks on some of the world’s biggest organisations and the GDPR law update have seen companies go to more stringent lengths to ensure their data and information systems remain protected and avoid costly breaches.

The Certified Information Systems Security Officer (CISSO) certification is Mile2’s vendor-neutral qualification which addresses a broad range of industry best practices, knowledge and skills expected from a security officer, and senior level system managers. The risk-based approach taught in the CISSO course will help you to implement and maintain information security controls that are aligned with business needs and industry standards.

You are required to have at least one year’s experiences in at least two of the modules, or one year in information security management. These skills will give you a good foundation before getting into the course which holds in-depth theory of core security concepts, practices, monitoring and compliance, and the practical implementation needed for all.


Our CISSO course includes the official Mile2 CPTE examination for full certification, and we also offer a free re-take, for your peace of mind.
