CSXP Certification for cybersecurity professionals Launched

Claims is the first vendor-neutral, performance-based cyber certification now available

A recent study conducted by RSA Conference and ISACA found that nearly 7 in 10 respondents require cybersecurity job candidates to hold a certification.

Now cybersecurity professionals can pursue the CSX Practitioner (CSXP) certification, the first-ever vendor-neutral, performance-based certification for cybersecurity professionals.

To earn CSXP, candidates must pass an exam in an adaptive, performance-based cyber laboratory environment. The exam measures skills and abilities in a virtual setting using real-world cyber security scenarios.

Exam registration is now open, and ISACA is offering a special introductory rate of US $375 for those who take the exam before 1 October and complete a post-exam survey.

“Earning the CSXP demonstrates practically tested abilities in prevention, detection and response to a cybersecurity incident,” said Christos Dimitriadis, Ph.D., CISA, CISM, CRISC, international president of ISACA and group director of information security at Intralot. “This credential is a clear indicator to employers that an individual has the skills to help protect and defend their organization.”

CSXP was developed by a working group of cyber security experts and went through a rigorous review by more than 100 experts from around the world. The innovative course delivery and testing components are the result of a collaboration with the Art of Exploitation (AoE) cyber security team of TeleCommunication Systems, Inc., a leader in cyber security training and enterprise solutions.

“CSXP is the future of real-world cyber security training and career development,” said Eddie Schwartz, CISA, CISM, international vice president of ISACA and president and COO of WhiteOps. “With its performance-based training, testing and continuing education requirements, the CSX certification program validates that candidates have valuable, current and hands-on skills to address cybersecurity incidents and challenges.”
