Managing IT Risk: CRISC Certification for Controlling Information System Risk
CRISC Risk Management ConsultantsThe CRISC credential (Certified in Risk and Information Systems Control) was created by the Information Systems Audit and Control Association (ISACA) to certify an IT professional's ability to assess information system risk and implement risk management control solutions that support an enterprise's business goals. CRISC certification signifies a combination of deep technical knowledge, broad business understanding, plus years of relevant work experience.

Progent offers the expertise of a CRISC-certified consultant who can help you create and implement a modern risk management strategy based on best practices promoted by CRISC and geared to align with your company's risk tolerance, business objectives, and IT budget. Progent's CRISC-certified risk management consultants expand the skills of other cybersecurity and information assurance experts whose services are available from Progent. These specialists include Progent's CISA-certified cybersecurity audit consultants, who can objectively review your IS control design and operational effectiveness, and Progent's CISM-certified security management experts, who can evaluate your network security profile or implement enterprise-wide cybersecurity.
