Demand for SCP’s IT Security Certification
Baltimore — April 24
Prometric, a provider of technology-enabled testing and assessment services, has announced that the Security Certified Program (SCP) has extended its contract with Prometric to administer its network security certification exams worldwide.
SCP is one of the largest providers of IT security certifications to employees of the federal government and businesses of all sizes.
SCP’s rapidly growing security certification programs address critical security concerns facing all organizations, and they are an ideal option for compliance with Department of Defense Directive 8570.1, which specifies IT security certifications for all “privileged users” or for jobs that pose an increased level of information assurance risk.
Prometric’s testing network will accommodate the continued growth of the SCP certification programs through its global testing channel.
“Network security is essential to every organization, and IT security pros must be specifically trained to address the growing concerns of our time,” said Ray Kelly, Prometric Client Services, Sales and Marketing, senior vice president. “Helping SCP to meet the growing security needs of worldwide organizations and the DoD — and, as a result, helping protect national security — is a top priority for Prometric.”
Mark Patrick, SCP vice president of sales and marketing, agrees.
“We are confident that extending our partnership with Prometric will further facilitate the necessary training and certification that ensures rock-solid security in all types of organizations, from Fortune 500 companies to small businesses in local communities,” Patrick said. “The SCP exams are well-recognized for being an invaluable aid in guaranteeing that only qualified people are holding critical security positions in any business or organization.”
