Jack Koziol was kind enough to leave a response to one of my recent blog postings
about the IACRB
(specifically concerning their relationship with the InfoSec Institute
). He includes a bunch of great information that I wasn't able to find anywhere else on teh interwebs. Those interested in understanding the linkage between the two organizations are encouraged to read his responses. Because the IACRB sponsors such great certification processes I found it odd that the organization was so opaque. In addition to Jack's comments, the IACRB also seems to be updating its website with some new features and perhaps more information about the organization. Having passed the CEPT myself, I firmly believe that the IACRB utilizes some of the best certification methods available to ensure the quality of those they certify. I'm eager to see how the organization lives up to this precedent by offering a clearer picture of their composition, mission and certifications.
