Why is mile2's Certified ISSO better than other general security training courses?


Major Points: 

C)ISSO initiative was derived by DND.


C)ISSO is an upgrade to the Certified Information Systems Security Professional.


C)ISSO is updated every 3-6 months.


C)ISSO covers 18 modules verses 10 Domains of Certified Information Systems Security Professional.


C)ISSO covers not only the Certified Information Systems Security Professional exam objectives but also covers the Information Systems Management and relevant Security management subjects, which Certified Information Systems Security Professional does not. 


C)ISSO official contributors and editors are Michael James Stewart (author of 75 books), including the Sybex Certified Information Systems Security Professional. In addition, we have included an official author to the official ISC2 Certified Information Systems Security Professional developer to contribute and ensure the quality control required to be the very best IS management certification in the industry.


The Mile2, C)ISSO was officially chosen over ISC2 and other international certifications by KPMG Global for their management and IT team members.



Conclusion: C)ISSO is the alternative and upgrade to the Certified Information Systems Security Professional because it's more robust, comprehensive and up to date. 



More information as to why mile2 is the chosen cyber security IS course:


The C)ISSO certification was inspired by the DND, chosen by KPMG and is recognized worldwide as the most updated and robust Cyber Security certification in the field of information security. In addition, the C)ISSO is now validated by the NSA/CNSS.  The C)ISSO exam is administered on-line by mile2's MACS system. Thousands of students worldwide have taken and passed the on line C)ISSO exam. The C)ISSO exam is about half the fee of other competing certifications!   


mile2®’s C)ISSO, is a certification that was derived from a dual initiative between the DOD and DND. 
Defined in in this dual initiative titled CANUS CDISM MOU - ID#: 1974100118 found at:

In the CANUS CDISM MOU it states the following:

A. The CDRSN National Information System Security Officer (ISSO) is the focal point for all security issues pertaining to this network.

B. The Director Information Management Security (DIMSECUR) is the DND authority for security assessment of the CDRSN, including the approval of Interim Authority to Process (IAP) and Authority to Communicate.
With these initiatives in mind, mile2® created a certification for the ISSO called the Certified ISSO.
