STUDENT COMPREHENSION ASSESSMENTS

Periodic course content and module reviews, coupled with question and answer sessions are conducted each day of the ISSPM Training Course. This reinforces the learning objectives of each module taught in the ISSPM Training Course. TSP follows the recommendations of the National Institute of Standards and Technology's Special Publication 800-16, which recommends four ways to evaluate the effectiveness of a cybersecurity training program.

Level 1: End-of-Course Evaluations (Student Satisfaction). Those evaluations obtain instant feedback from students who use forms that rate the training facility, instructor and presentation method, among other factors.

Level 2: Behavior Objective Testing (Learning and Teaching Effectiveness). This level seeks to measure the degree to which a training activity transfers information to the student, for example, by administering tests before and after the training.

Level 3: Job Transfer Skills (Student Performance Effectiveness).  TSP polls students 30 days to 60 days after the ISSPM Training Course, to see whether students are successful in implementing course content within their organizations.

Level 4: Organizational Benefit (Training Program Effectiveness). This level seeks to quantify the value of the resulting security improvements in relation to the cost of the training.

 


ISSPM WEB BASED TRAINING COURSE

Students who take the ISSPM Web Based Training Course will receive the same structured and comprehensive training as the classroom based course. Through a web browser students will have access to the same ISSPM Training Course materials that are used in the classroom based course. Additionally the website contains a substantial amount of other excellent training and reference materials related to Information Systems Security and other related topics.  The ISSPM Web Based Training Course is a self paced and guided course. Students will take the ISSPMP Certification Exam when they are comfortable that they have met the learning objectives for each module in the course. There is frequent interaction between the student and ISSPM Training Course Instructor, through e-mail or by phone as required by the student

 


INFORMATION SYSTEMS SECURITY PROGRAM MANAGEMENT PROFESSIONAL CERTIFICATION (ISSPMP)

The creation of the ISSPM Training Course and Information Systems Security Program Management Professional (ISSPMP) Certification in 2009, arose out of extensive research by TSP. Interviews were conducted with junior and senior level ISSM's, ISSO's, IAM's and IAO's, working for U.S. Federal Government, DoD and IC Agencies. The overall feedback was that an ISSPM Training Course and ISSPM Security Certification were needed that validated and certified an individual's knowledge of FISMA, NIST Information Security Standards and Guidelines, DNI ICD's, CNSS Instructions, DoD and OMB Policies. TSP created the ISSPM Training Course and ISSPMP Certification.

 

ISSPM CERTIFICATION

  • Will certify individuals as an Information Systems Security Program Management Professional (ISSPMP). The ISSPMP Certification is the only Security Certification designed exclusively to validate an individual's knowledge of FISMA, NIST Information Security Standards and Guidelines, DNI ICD's, CNSS Instructions, DoD and OMB Policies.

  • Will provide confidence to employers that the Certified ISSPMP is capable of developing, implementing and managing a successful and compliant Information Systems Security Program, that is built on a solid foundation of FISMA, NIST Information Security Standards and Guidelines, DNI ICD's, CNSS Instructions, DoD and OMB Policies.

  • Will provide the Certified ISSPMP with practical real world education, experience and guidance that can be directly applied to U.S. Federal Government, DoD and IC Agencies Information Systems Security Programs.

  • Will provide the Certified ISSPMP with Continuing Professional Education (CPE), Professional Networking and Mentoring.

  • Will develop a network of Certified ISSPMP's across the U.S. Government. This is of the utmost importance to all U.S. Government  Agencies. A Security Workforce of ISSM's, ISSO's, IAM's and IAO's that are Certified ISSPMP's, will be a workforce that can implement compliant and secure Information Systems Security Programs.

 

ISSPMP Certification Exam

The ISSPMP Certification Exam consists of 100 Multiple Choice, Matching and True/False Questions. Unlike other Security Certifications that are Pass/Fail Exams, TSP will work with individuals until they pass the ISSPMP Exam, at no additional charge. Upon passing the ISSPMP Certification Exam, you will receive an ISSPMP Certification Certificate.

 

ISSPM Training Course / ISSPMP Certification Exam Guarantee

TSP also provides this guarantee. We will continue to provide any student with additional training until they fully understand all concepts, content and modules taught in the ISSPM Training Course, and until they have successfully passed the ISSPMP Certification Exam.

 

ISSPMP Certification Continuing Professional Education (CPE) Credits

The goal of the ISSPMP Continuing Professional Education (CPE) policy is to; Ensure all ISSPMP's maintain an adequate level of knowledge and proficiency of Federal/State Laws, FISMA, NIST Information Security Standards/Guidelines/Special Publications, DNI ICD's, CNSS Instructions, DoD and OMB Policies, and current technologies and best practices related to the many disciplines of Information Systems Security Program Management. ISSPMP CPE requirements are defined by the ISSPMP Certification Review Board. All ISSPMP's who comply with the ISSPMP CPE Policy will; Be more knowledgeable, better suited and more successful in their abilities to develop, implement, manage or support  Information Systems Security Programs, for U.S. Federal Government Agencies, including DoD and IC Agencies.

ISSPMP Certification Code Of Ethics  

The purpose of the ISSPMP Code of Ethics is to give other Security Professionals and Managers a high degree of confidence as to the character, creditability, knowledge, abilities and strengths of an ISSPMP.  The responsibilities of an ISSPMP can be very broad, and sometimes very deep. The services provided by an ISSPMP are critical to the success of an organization's Information Systems Security Program, and to the confidentiality, integrity and availability of the organization data, information systems and networking infrastructure. An ISSPMP certified by TSP, acknowledges that such a certification is a privilege that must be held to the highest standards. An ISSPMP agrees to adhere to, and support the ISSPMP Code of Ethics. Any ISSPMP who is known to violate any provisions of the ISSPM Code of Ethics, will be subject to an investigation by the TSP ISSPMP Certification Review Board, which may result in the revocation of the ISSPMP Certification. An ISSPMP Certification Registry is maintained of ISSPMP's in good standing.
