Information Security has become a critical part of virtually every IT organization, and that growth is expected to continue. The demand for information security professionals is equally strong, with a recent report stating "56% of cyber security jobs require CISSP”. The CISSP credential demonstrates in-depth technical knowledge and experience that employers and other industry professionals recognize.
