EC-Council CCISO Domain 1: Governance, Risk, and Compliance

The Chief Information Security Officer, commonly known as CISO, is the top-level executive in charge of an organization’s data and cybersecurity needs. Chief Information Security Officers (CISO) must have a thorough understanding of IT infrastructure as well as the numerous threats that can be posed to computer systems. The CISO’s primary responsibility is to implement security protocols and procedures. To become a CISO, one must pass the CCISO certification exam.

EC-Council CCISO Domain 1

Certified Chief Information Security Officer (CCISO) Certification

The CCISO certification from EC-Council focuses on CISO, a top-level information security executive. It determines a person’s suitability to serve as the organization’s highest-ranking executive in charge of information security. Today, most mid-sized businesses worldwide employ a CISO who is well compensated.

Domains of EC-Council CCISO

CCISO is certified in the following CCISO Domains based on their knowledge and experience:

Domains of EC-Council CCISO

  • Domain 1: Governance, Risk, and Compliance (16%)
  • Domain 2: Information Security Controls and Audit Management (18%)
  • Domain 3: Security Program Management and Operations (22%)
  • Domain 4: Information Security Core Competencies (25%)
  • Domain 5: Strategic Planning, Finance, Procurement, and Third-Party Management (19%)

We will go over the first domain, Governance, Risk, and Compliance, in this article.

Domain 1: Governance, Risk, and Compliance (16%)
Structured planning, aligning information security requirements and business needs, leadership and management skills in accordance with cybersecurity and organizational laws and acts, examining the most recent information security changes, trends, best practices, and report writing are all covered in this domain.

Governance: Governance refers to the structure and processes by which an organization is governed and operated. It is the pillar upon which information security is built. We can conclude that the field of information security is expanding. As a result, implementing governance and risk management mechanisms within the information security function is more critical than ever before. Integration with the entire organization and collaboration with executive leadership is critical to include a board of directors.

Risk Management:  Risk management entails identifying, analyzing, and responding to risk factors during a successful organization. Effective risk management entails controlling future outcomes as much as possible by acting proactively rather than reactively. As a result, effective risk management can reduce a risk’s probability and severity.

Compliance: Compliance, also known as regulatory compliance, refers to rules and policies that restrict or regulate specific products, services, or processes across businesses. Compliance standards, which are often legally binding and enforced by government agencies, are federal, state, and municipal regulations that limit how organizations conduct business.

Domain 1 of the CISO exam has a weightage of 16%, which is one-sixth of the exam. The following subtopics are covered in the first domain of the CCISO certification exam:

  • Define, Implement, Manage, and Maintain a Program for Information Security Governance

Several familiar business drivers, such as compliance and efforts to protect intellectual property, are directly supported by information security activities.

3. Establishing an Information Security Management System
