Security Certifications and Standards
What are security certifications and standards?
Standards and security certifications are essential elements of the cybersecurity sector. Security certifications, such as CISSP, CompTIA Security+, and CISM, attest to a person's proficiency and knowledge in particular cybersecurity topics. These credentials offer skill acknowledgment and can improve job chances. Security standards, on the other hand, are frameworks or recommendations that specify best practices for putting in place and keeping up efficient cybersecurity measures within organizations. Examples of specifications for data protection and risk mitigation are the PCI DSS and the NIST Cybersecurity Framework. Standards and certifications both contribute significantly to fostering a strong cybersecurity posture and protecting sensitive data.
