Based in Vienna, Virginia, USA with offices in London and Hong Kong, the International Information Systems Security Certification Consortium, Inc. (ISC)2(R) is the premier organization dedicated to providing information security professionals around the world with the standard for professional certification based on (ISC)2's CBK(R), a compendium of industry "best practices" for information security professionals. Since its inception in 1989, the non-profit organization has trained, qualified and certified more than 25,000 information security professionals in more than 100 countries. (ISC)2 awards the Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP(R)) and the Systems Security Certified Practitioner (SSCP(R)) credentials.
