SSCP® - Systems Security Certified Practitioner

The Go-To-Guy: That’s an Information Security Must-Have The go-to guy could be you. With as little as one year’s work experience in the information security field, you can become certified as a Systems Security Certified Practitioner (SSCP®). The SSCP is ideal for those working towards positions such as Network Security Engineers, Security Systems Analysts, or Security Administrators. This is also the perfect course for personnel in many other non-security disciplines that require an understanding of security but do not have information security as a primary part of their job description. This large and growing group includes information systems auditors; application programmers; system, network and database administrators; business unit representatives, and systems analysts. For your SSCP credential, your professional experience has to be in one or more of these seven (ISC)² SSCP domains:
      

Access Controls Cryptography Malicious Code and Activity Monitoring and Analysis Networks and Communications Risk, Response and Recovery Security Operations and Administration

SSCP® - Why Certify
People are the key to a secure organization.
Technological solutions alone cannot protect an organization's critical information assets. Employers demanding qualified information security staff give their organizations a leading edge by providing the highest standard of security for their customers', employees', stakeholders' and organizational information assets. (ISC)², the only not-for-profit body charged with maintaining, administering and certifying information security professionals via the compendium of industry best practices, the (ISC)² CBK®, is the premier resource for information security professionals worldwide. Benefits of Certification to the Professional

SSCP® - How to Certify
There are four processes a candidate must successfully complete to become certified as a SSCP®: 1. 2. 3. 4. Examination Certification Endorsement Audit

Examination To sit for the SSCP examination, a candidate must:
  

Sign up for the examination date and location Submit the examination fee Assert that he or she possesses a minimum of one year of professional experience in one of the seven CBK domains (If you’re a practitioner without the required work experience, you may achieve Associate of (ISC)² for SSCP by passing the same SSCP examination. Upon successfully completing the experience requirement and endorsement, you will receive a certificate and ID card and hold the SSCP designation.) Complete the Examination Agreement, attesting to the truth of his or her assertions regarding professional experience, and legally committing to the adherence of the (ISC)² Code of Ethics Successfully answer four questions regarding criminal history and related background

Certification To be issued a certificate, a candidate must:
  

Pass the SSCP examination with a scaled score of 700 points or greater Submit a properly completed and executed Endorsement Form Successfully pass an audit of their assertions regarding professional experience, if the candidate is selected for audit

Endorsement Once a candidate has been notified they have successfully passed the SSCP examination, he or she will be required to have his or her application endorsed before the credential can be awarded. The endorser attests that the candidate's assertions regarding professional experience are true to the best of their knowledge, and that the candidate is in good standing within the information security industry. More on endorsement.

Audit Passing candidates will be randomly selected and audited by (ISC)² Services prior to issuance of any certificate. Multiple certifications may result in a candidate being audited more than once.

SSCP® - For Businesses
What is the SSCP®? The Systems Security Certified Practitioner (SSCP) is especially designed for network and systems administrators who implement policies, standards, and procedures on the various hardware and software programs for which they are responsible. (ISC)² credential holders are part of an experienced group of professionals who openly share their experience, ideas, tools and knowledge so all can benefit. A credentialed practitioner will have a competitive advantage in the labor market, professional recognition and the respect of their colleagues. How will the SSCP benefit my employees and my organization?

Credentialed professionals have already gained years of experience in the industry and have met a minimum educational standard. When you see an (ISC)² credential on a resume you know the candidate is qualified for the position. Professionals with (ISC)² credentials are required to acquire CPE credits every year to maintain their certification. This means that the candidate will continue their education as new challenges manifest themselves, solutions are found and new technologies are developed. Organizations such as the DOD and the MOD now require certifications for their information security personnel. If you are a service provider or sub contractor you will need staff with these credentials. SSCP certifications demonstrate a candidate’s knowledge of standards, ability to practice a code of ethics, and willingness to commit to a career in the information security field. The SSCP is an internationally recognized qualification as opposed to a regionally recognized qualification.

Maintenance Requirements To remain in good standing with (ISC)2, you must recertify every three years to maintain your SSCP credential. This is primarily accomplished by acquiring 60 continuing professional education (CPE) credits every three years, with a minimum of 10 CPEs earned each year after certification. You must also pay an annual maintenance fee of USD65.
