The CRISC certification was developed by a nonprofit, independent global leader in security, risk, governance and compliance. It provides a tool to help assess the proficiency of a professional’s IT-related risk management skills. CRISC is a highly desired certification because it is the only certification that positions IT professionals for future career growth by linking IT risk management to enterprise risk management.
Nearly 17,000 professionals across a range of job functions – including IT risk, security, audit and compliance – have earned CRISC since it was established two years ago. This number includes more than 1,200 CIOs, CISOs and chief compliance, risk and privacy officers.
