  • Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill, NC (1888PressRelease) February 11, 2011 - In the fast-evolving world of security consulting, it is a necessity for professionals to constantly stay abreast of the latest industry standards and best practices in order to properly protect the most valuable assets of their clients. Risk Management Associates, a Raleigh-based security consulting, design, training and investigation company, has already made tremendous strides toward this in 2011, beginning with the attainment of an Industrial Security Professional (ISP) certification by Executive Vice President Christine Peterson.

    "Christine's recent ISP certification is a testament, not only to the extent of her own dedication, professionalism, knowledge, and experience in the security field, but also to that of our company and its members," said RMA President Mike Longmire. "We pride ourselves on the expertise of our team members and their passion for staying at the top of our industry."

    The ISP certification is the premier certification for security professionals actively involved in the protection of classified national security information in accordance with the NISPOM (National Industrial Security Program Operations Manual). It is one of the top certifications that can be attained by an information security professional, and is achieved through the completion of a rigorous exam designed to assess knowledge of a wide berth of topics as directed by EO 12829 and the NISPOM. The criteria for being eligible to take the exam are stringent, and only professionals with more than five years of experience protecting classified information may apply.

    The highly regarded certification is developed and administered by the National Classification Management Society (NCMS), which describes the intent of the ISP designation as "awarding professional certification and recognition to qualified candidates who demonstrate the knowledge, skills, and abilities their security profession demands." The basis for the examination is primarily the National Industrial Security Program Operating Manual (NISPOM), the supplements, and other information security concomitant rules and regulations to include operations Security, proprietary information, etc."

    Peterson believes the designation will greatly benefit RMA. "Besides the obvious absorption of relevant security information I've undergone to get the ISP certification, the accreditation will add to our company's mission of constantly striving toward being a leader in the industry. I'm glad to have helped advance the goals of the company."
