ERII CCISM Certification Program Announced
ERII 2015 Conference J.D. LeaSure CCISM Program 

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.
