Maintaining CISO Certification

Maintaining CISO Certification - High Performing Information Security Program

Stay Informed and Always Ready to Tackle the
Biggest Information Security Challenges

In line with ANSI/ISO/IEC 17024, certification providers must have a re-certification program. Requirement 6.5.1 states, “The certification body shall define recertification requirements according to the competence standard and other relevant documents, to ensure that the certified person continues to comply with the current certification requirements.”

EC-Council requires members to provide evidence of continuous learning as a basis for maintaining their certification.

The main goal of the EC-Council Continuing Education program is to ensure that certification holders have the most up-to-date information and tools to address the constantly evolving challenges in information security.

Continued competency can be demonstrated through ongoing professional education, examination (often not re-taking the original exam but an exam that would be at a higher level), or portfolios (when there is a product involved).

EC-Council members are required to register a minimum of 20 credits annually and remit a maintenance fee to uphold their certification. The total number of credits must amount to a minimum of 120 per member (not per certification) within a period of three (3) years.
