(ISC)2 wins “Best Professional Training Program” by SC Magazine

(ISC)2 has won an SC Magazine Award in the Best Professional Training Program category at the 16th annual SC Magazine Awards Gala in San Francisco in conjunction with RSA 2013.

This SCMagazine award was the fifth for the (ISC)2 organisation that has already won twice before in the category of the “Best Professional Certification Program” for its CISSP certification.

Executive director of (ISC)2 W. Hord Tipton said  “The 2013 (ISC)² Global Information Security Workforce Study released at RSA this week confirms that the gap between demand for qualified information security professionals and supply has further widened, which makes it imperative for government, academia and industry to embrace a new approach to information security training and education,”

SC Magazine - Awards 2013“Through our comprehensive education program, we are working to close the skills gaps that are threatening the future of the global information security workforce. It’s an honor to be recognized by SC Magazine for these efforts.”

There were many professional information security organisations that entered the Professional Award categories.

All submissions were reviewed by a panel of judges, who selected the winners. There are many factors judges consider when selecting winners such as reports or product reviews to narrow down the hundreds of submissions to the Best Professional Training Program Category.

The SC Magazine Awards is now in its 16th year and are the global leader for IT security professionals and products that fend off the security threats of today.
