IISP Skills Framework - Version 2.3

The IISP Skills Framework describes the range of competencies expected of Information Security and Information Assurance Professionals in the effective performance of their roles. It was developed through collaboration between both private and public sector organisations and world-renowned academics and security leaders.

It defines the skills and capability expected of security professionals in practical application and not just an assessment of their knowledge. Not all roles require detailed experience in all competency areas, and for more information about how the framework can be applied, please contact the Institute.
