Time flies, it has arrived in the second half of 2021, many people in the information security circle have a large demand for certificates, so let's take stock of the three major information security certificates with relatively high gold content that can be expected in the future. I hope to be helpful.

This CISSP certification, commonly known as "double SS", has a history of more than 20 years , is definitely the most authoritative certification in the global security industry, with more than 100,000 certified personnel, and is recognized by the industry on a global scale. Even when immigrating to Australia, Canada and some European countries, having this certificate can also add points. Whether it is a security product, a pre-sales engineer, or a security manager within an enterprise, CISSP can almost be said to be a must-have certificate.

CISSP covers a wide range of areas, basically covering all areas of security, and will add new content according to changes in the new industry situation. For example, in the currently updated textbooks, technologies such as mobile security, cloud security, and industrial control security are all included.

Security+ is a certification for basic information security practitioners, focusing on technical practical operation. Whether it is a fresh graduate, an operation and maintenance personnel or a developer who has already entered the workplace, Security+ is an effective stepping stone to enter the information security industry.

At present, domestic information security-related authoritative certifications are basically aimed at practitioners with several years of work experience, and they tend to be theoretical, framework-oriented and instructive. Practical and highly valuable security certification, the emergence of Security+ fills the vacancy in this aspect. Whether it is a graduate, a little white hat who has not received orthodox security education, or even a senior person in information security management positions and operation maintenance and development personnel in non-security positions, Security+ can be regarded as an excellent security technology practical training.

So far, Security+ has been widely recognized in 147 countries around the world, and more than 50 large and medium-sized cities including Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou and Shenzhen have established test centers.

CISA certification training is the threshold for practitioners to be proficient in the IT audit knowledge system and audit process , which is already the default eligibility criteria in the industry. Not only IT audit projects, but also many security consulting projects, Party A will also value whether the implementer has a CISA certificate.

Through the CISA certification training, you can understand and master the basic knowledge, technical requirements and workflow that information system auditors need to have.

The survey shows that the proportion of people with CISA certificates is high among IT practitioners, especially among CIOs or IT department executives and security consultants. In recent years, CISA certification training has gradually heated up in China, and more and more financial institutions such as banks, securities, and insurance have conducted collective training for personnel. Telecom operators, large central enterprises, government departments with large information systems and e-government systems related to the national economy and people's livelihood have also begun to care about and attach importance to IT auditing.

Since there is no IT audit certification in China, CISA has become an important way for IT auditors to obtain qualification certification.
