CISSP-certified Information Security ExpertsProgent can provide fast and economical access to CISSP-certified cybersecurity consulting experts. CISSP certification is the most prized network security credential in the industry and recognizes proven mastery of a international standard for network security. To earn CISSP certification, candidates must show extensive knowledge of advanced cybersecurity solutions and have years of hands-on work experience.

American National Standards Institute (ANSI) has granted the CISSP credential formal recognition in the field of network security under ISO/IEC 17024. This represents the first time that an information technology 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) categories. In addition, the CISSP has been accepted as a standard for the United States NSA's Information Systems Security Engineering Professional program to secure the National Information Infrastructure.

  • Secure Operations
    Operations security has to do with defining the management of equipment and media and overseeing the operators and administrators with access privileges to these resources. Audit and tracking are the tools and techniques that permit the identification of security-related events and consequent efforts to identify the essential elements and convey the associated data to the designated individual, group, or process.

  • Site Security
    Site security addresses security techniques for the entire facility, from the perimeter to the inside office space, including all of the IT network assets.
