ISACA's CRISC Certification Wins Best Professional Certification Award From SC Magazine

ROLLING MEADOWS, Ill. --(Business Wire)--

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 (News - Alert) 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 (News - Alert) (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.
