The Practitioner Level is the mid-level course in the certification track. This level aims at developing practical subject-specific skills in a 5-day course. Upon successful completion of the exam, you will receive a certificate, in the possession of which you can register for the internationally recognised SECO-Institute Practitioner title. The Practitioner Certification requires a minimum of 20 CPE credits yearly (a total of 60 credits in the three-year certification cycle).

Information Security Practitioner (ISP) enables you to apply information security management principles to the human, organisational and technological domains of information security. In this course, you will acquire an in-depth understanding of information security governance, risk management, compliance, awareness raising, monitoring and reporting. You will dive into the hacker’s mind, learn the phases of hacking, and understand popular cyberattack methods. You will deepen your knowledge about effective information security controls that allow you to mitigate security risks. Finally, you will gain insight into the security challenges posed by cloud computing, big data, IoT and robotics.

ISP offers a unique combination of knowledge and hands-on experience. In our simulated business environment, you will practice your newly acquired skills with realistic information security tasks. You will work on a compliance project, draft an ISO 27001 implementation plan, improve a strategic information security policy, perform a risk assessment, and design an information security awareness program. Ultimately, you will provide recommendations for improving an organisation’s information security based on an audit report.
