 ISACA Introduces Accelerated Path to the CSX Cybersecurity Practitioner Certification 

Schaumburg, IL, USA (27 February 2019)—In response to feedback on the CSX Cybersecurity Practitioner (CSX-P) certification beta exam last year, global technology association ISACA has introduced an accelerated path to earning the CSX-P credential.

The Accelerated CSX-P Certification Suite recognizes existing certifications and expertise, enabling those who hold one of the following certifications or who have three years of cybersecurity experience to pursue it:

  • CISA
  • CISM
  • CGEIT
  • CRISC
  • Cybersecurity Fundamentals Certificate
  • CEH
  • CISSP
  • CySA+
  • ECSA
  • GCIH
  • GPEN
  • LPT
  • OSCP

The CSX-P exam now takes one hour instead of four, and candidates must receive a passing score on at least three of the five performance assessments. The cost for the Accelerated CSX-P Certification Suite is US $549 for ISACA members and US $599 for nonmembers. It includes the application fee, certification exam and 10 labs (six instructional labs and four challenge labs) to help the candidate prepare.

Additionally, CSX-Ps (including those already certified) no longer need to retest every three years in order to recertify. Instead, 50 percent of the 120 CPE hours required every three years must involve performance-based training to ensure cybersecurity skills are continually honed.

A promotional rate of US $429 for members and US $479 for nonmembers is available until 29 March.

The CSX-P is the cybersecurity industry’s first performance-based certification. It is a past winner of SC Award’s Best Certification Program.
