Information Systems Security Engineering Professional (ISSEP, sometimes CISSP-ISSEP) is an advanced information security certification issued by (ISC)2 that focuses on the engineering aspects of information security. In October 2014 it was announced that some of the ISSEP curriculum would be made available to the public by the United States Department of Homeland Security through its National Initiative for Cybersecurity Careers and Studies program. Both ZDNet and Network World have named ISSEP one of tech’s most valuable certifications.
To receive an ISSEP designation a person must:
1. Hold a valid CISSP certification
2. Have two or more years of professional experience in the area of security-related engineering.
3. Pass the ISSEP exam
The ISSEP exam focuses on four areas of information security:
1. Systems Security Engineering
2. Certification and Accreditation (C&A) / Risk Management Framework (RMF)
3. Technical Management
