The Espionage Research Institute International extends a sincere thank you to all conference attendees, sponsors, advertisers and speakers. The 2015 conference was our best conference to date. We could not have accomplished this goal without your support. Thank you!
Pictured is ERII's Director, J.D. LeaSure, presenting information about ERII's Certified Counterespionage Information Security Manager Certification (CCISM) program. With the CCISM certification program, ERII seeks to
1) Set a standard for minimum course work/knowledge of TSCM/Cyber TSCM professionals, and 2) Include both TSCM/Cyber TSCM to create a modernized approach to electronic eavesdropping detection.
ERII believes that CCISM program will clearly distinguish Cyber TSCM from cyber security, and bring awareness to the relevance of Cyber TSCM and gaps in cybersecurity programs.
ERII expects to begin offering the online portion of the CCISM certification program in November, 2017.
