About the HISPI
Headquartered in Lithoina, GA, the Holistic Information Security Practitioner (HISP) Institute (HISPI) is an independent certification organization consisting of volunteers that are true information security practitioners, such as Chief Information Security Officers (CISOs), Information Security Officers (ISOs), Information Security Managers, Directors of Information Security, Security Analysts, Security Engineers and Technology Risk Managers from major corporations and organizations.
One of the main objectives of the HISPI is to promote cost-effective training and certification to information security, audit and compliance professionals, particularly Public Sector and Higher Education employees, where budget constraints can be a barrier to obtaining such quality training and certification.
Membership to the HISP Institute is currently open to anyone who is interested in achieving their organizational objectives through improving the efficiency of the organization's internal controls and security processes, as well as adopting a holistic approach to information security management. Because the certification effectively blends technology, processes and people to meet company goals, the professional is often considered to be a hybrid Information Security professional with a balance of technical and business skills. This indicates the HISP certified individual can function effectively in the capacity of a CISO, CCO, CRO, Risk Manager, Security Manager or Audit Manager.
