International Information Systems Security Certification Consortium, Inc., abbreviated (ISC)², is the creator of the Certified Information System Security Professional (CISSP) course. It is highly touted as the premier Security course and certification available. On average, certificate holders have one of the highest salaries of all IT certifications.

However, the CISSP course and exam are not technically-driven. Instead, the course focuses on real-life situations and the vocabulary of the IT and security market. A person with CISSP certification is likely to have a job that explains security issues to the upper management, instead of finding and fixing problems themselves. CISSP certificate holders tend to manage an IT team instead of be a part of one.
