Red Bike Publishing is so happy to have helped hundreds of people study for security certification with Red Bike Publishing’s Unofficial Study Guide for ISP Certification and we appreciate all of your encouraging emails. With such success, we’ve had many requests asking Red Bike Publishing to write exam preparation material for Security Professional Education Development (SPēD) Certification. For a long time, we have struggled with how to meet the challenge.
Until now! Red Bike Publishing’s own Jeffrey W. Bennett, SFPC, SAPPC, and ISP just tested and qualified for the newest SPēD certification, Industrial Security Oversight Certification (ISOC). He tested without additional preparation other than his NISPOM experience covering what he has learned from working in the NISP, writing articles and training programs, and keeping up to date with the Red Bike Publishing’s Unofficial Study Guide for ISP Certification.
That’s because an understanding of NISPOM is the fundamental skill set to pass the ISOC exam. Per the website, “The Industrial Security Oversight Certification (ISOC) is ideal for DoD, Industry, and federal members under the National Industrial Security Program (NISP).” The prerequisite certification is the Security Fundamentals Professional Certification (SFPC) and is also NISPOM based.
The ISOC assesses foundational knowledge in the following competencies (NISPOM topcis):
Industrial Security Basics Security Reviews and Inspections Security Systems and Requirements
Though Red Bike Publishing has not written any additional material for the ISOC certification, we are confident in sharing that Red Bike Publishing’s Unofficial Study Guide for ISP Certification can be used to help prepare for the ISOC exam. Our security books including NISPOM, ITAR and DoD Security Clearance and Contracts Guidebook, and FSO Tool Box training packages are also great resources and study prep for your security certification needs.
