Chicago, July 20 — Certification Magazine, the leading publication for certified IT professionals, has announced that (ISC)2, the not-for-profit global leader in educating and certifying information security professionals throughout their careers, will debut an information-packed microsite on CertMag.com.
The (ISC)2 microsite is located at http://infozone.certmag.com/isc2/ and is part of Certification Magazine's Infozone, a collection of microsites providing useful online resources for certified IT professionals.
“Certification Magazine’s Infozone is a valuable resource for both our readers and advertisers,” said Norm Kamikow, president and editor in chief of Certification Magazine. “Certified IT professionals can use this site to find trusted partners and innovative solutions, and advertisers will have the benefit of forming close and continuous relationships with IT decision makers. With this new offering, (ISC)2 will be able to communicate its knowledge of current industry information and provide valuable career guidance.”
Visitors to the (ISC)2 microsite will have access to an array of career-advancing resources, such as the “Global Information Security Workforce Study,” a library of white papers and more. For those interested in making a career move from IT to IT security, (ISC)2 is offering, for a limited time, a free online self-assessment for its SSCP credential. Called studISCope (pronounced “study scope”), this exam-simulation tool enables individuals to assess their knowledge of the SSCP CBK, a taxonomy of information security topics that serves as the foundation for the SSCP certification. At the conclusion of the simulation, the test takers receive their score based on the official algorithm used in the actual exam, helping them assess their overall exam readiness.
“(ISC)2 is committed to providing a career path for professionals from the beginning of their careers until retirement,” said W. Hord Tipton, CISSP-ISSEP, CAP, CISA, executive director of (ISC)2. “With this new microsite, we hope to supply career-enabling tools to those early in their careers wanting to progress to a higher level or those looking to make the transition from IT into security.”
Certification Magazine includes feature articles, columns, research and resources to help certified IT professionals advance their careers through skills development, education and professional credentialing.
