ISACA, a global association of more than 100,000 IT security, assurance
and governance professionals, has won the Best Professional
Certification Program Award for its Certified in Risk and Information
Systems Control (CRISC)
credential. The 2013 SC Awards, established by SC Magazine, were
presented in conjunction with the RSA Conference.
"SC Magazine is proud to recognize ISACA as a leader in the
information security industry," said Illena Armstrong, vice president of
editorial, SC Magazine. "ISACA's certification program is a great
model for the entire information security industry."
The 2013 SC Awards winners are chosen by a panel of security
professionals selected by SC Magazine's editorial team for their
information security leadership and knowledge. The panel conducted
in-depth analysis and considered many factors such as applicable
research, analyst reports and reviews to narrow down the field of
hundreds of submissions to the top finalists. Through this comprehensive
analysis, ISACA's CRISC certification was chosen as this year's winner
in the Best Professional Certification Program category.
The annual SC Awards, now in its 16th year, showcase the
leading solutions, services, certifications and professionals. SC
Magazine distinguishes the achievements of the security
professionals in the field, the innovations happening in th vendor and
service provider communities, and the important work of government,
commercial and nonprofit organizations. A list of winners is at www.scmagazineus.com/awards.
"This award is an honor and a testament to the big impact CRISC has made
in its first three years," said Allan Boardman, CISA, CISM, CGEIT,
CRISC, CA (SA), ACA, CISSP, chair of ISACA's Credentialing and Career
Management Board. "Employers are looking for candidates with the CRISC
credential as proof of a strong background in risk and control, and
employees are seeking the credential to differentiate themselves and
boost their value to their organizations. All of ISACA's certifications
are globally recognized in many industries, and independent studies
consistently rate ISACA's designations among the highest paying
certifications that an IT professional can earn. These factors all
contribute to the high demand for CRISC certification."
CRISC, established in 2010, has already been earned by nearly 17,000
professionals. To earn the certification, candidates must prove at least
three years of relevant experience and pass the CRISC exam. The next
exam will be administered worldwide on 8 June 2013. Additional
