CIISec accredits Cyber and Information security professionals to ensure that they meet the highest professional standards and our competency based memberships are widely recognised in the information security industry. The competency-based assessment is the only one in the profession, setting it apart from knowledge-based qualifications. Once you’ve become a member, individuals should then apply to upgrade their membership to accredited levels by demonstrating their practical experience and breadth of knowledge. This is assessed through a written application for Associate Membership and an application followed by interview for Full Membership.
