CISSP-certified Information Security ExpertsProgent offers prompt and affordable access to CISSP-certified cybersecurity consulting experts. CISSP is the most prized network security credential in the IT industry and indicates mastery of a global standard for information security. To be granted CISSP certification, candidates must show extensive knowledge of advanced cybersecurity solutions and have years of professional implementation experience.

American National Standards Institute (ANSI) has granted CISSP official recognition in the field of information security under ISO/IEC 17024. This represents the first time that an IT credential has been given ANSI approval. CISSP is also formally recognized by the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) in their Information Assurance Technical and Managerial (IAT and IAM) disciplines. In addition, CISSP has been adopted as a standard for the United States NSA's Information Systems Security Engineering Professional (ISSEP) program to protect the NII.

Progent's online and onsite IT support options are intended to match any budget and include urgent or occasional support with by-the-minute billing, fix-bid help for projects like security audits or penetration testing, or subscription based remote monitoring and management (RMM) services.

  • Applications Development Security
  • Secure Operations
  • Site Security
  • Data Encryption
  • Telecommunications, LAN and Internet Security
  • Business Continuity Preparedness
  • Risk Analysis
  • Law, Investigation and Ethics
  • Security Administration Practices
    Security management involves the determination of a company's most important information and the development, recording, and carrying out of policies, procedures, and guidelines. Management techniques that include data categorization and risk assessment can be used to identify potential attacks, categorize assets, and rate system vulnerabilities so that effective controls can be implemented.

  • Security Architecture and Paradigms
    This involves the concepts, structures, and guidelines used to build, track, and secure OS platforms, equipment, infrastructure, and application software plus the controls used to enforce different degrees of robustness, integrity, and confidentiality.

  • Access Management Systems and Processes
    Access controls are a set of technologies that operate cohesively to build a security architecture to guard the high-value data of the information system.

  • Applications Development Security
    This covers the key security principles associated with application development. Applications development security defines the environment where programs are planned and developed and elucidates the critical part application software has in providing IT system security.

  • Secure Operations
    This has to do with determining the controls over hardware and media and overseeing the technicians and administrators who have access permissions to these assets. Audit and tracking are the mechanisms and techniques that permit the identification of security-relevant activity and subsequent efforts to identify the essential factors and report the associated information to the designated person, group, or process.

  • Site Security
    Site security provides security mechanisms for the whole facility, from the perimeter to the inside office space, including all of the IT network resources.

  • Cryptography
    Data Encryption entails the concepts, techniques, and methods of cloaking information to preserve its integrity, confidentiality, and legitimacy.

  • Telecommunications, LAN and Internet Security
    This area involves:
    • Network Infrastructure
    • Transmission methods
    • Transport protocols
    • Security techniques used to provide availability, consistency, and confidentiality
    • Validation for traffic over private and public networks and media.
  • Business Continuity Planning
    This covers the preservation and restoration of commercial activity in the event of outages.

  • Risk Analysis
    Risk analysis assesses a company's vulnerability to cyber attacks, estimates the damage potential of specific modern threats, and identifies best-practice controls and mitigation procedures to reduction vulnerability.

  • Law, Investigation and Ethics
    This has to do with:
    • Information system crime regulations
    • The procedures taken and mechanisms used to solve computer crime activity
