EnterpriseGRC Solutions is an active member of Cloud Credential Council, an ITGI ISACA Sponsor and board member to multiple standards organizations both currently and across the last decade. The goal of our participation is to extend awareness of best practices in security and to make the examination process more accessible to learners from all age, gender, and cultural backgrounds.  We believe the purpose of these certifications must go beyond the stacking of credentials on an elite and socially homogeneous stack of resumes.  The application of security and technology principals must reach into ethical and social behaviors, driving legal, organization and educational objectives in all countries and governments.

EnterpriseGRC Solutions is committed to a facilitated learning approach, where content is able to adapt to a broader range of learning styles.  Classic book knowledge is not enough to apply the important knowledge that is transferred to the body of information covered by such examinations as the CSA Certificate of Cloud Security Knowledge (CCSK), or the Holistic Information Security Practitioner Certification (HISP).  We want to see more women and more diversity in general among the persons who pass and contribute to these important exams.  It is also critical that people with less background in security be able to master concepts of Green Technology, the foundations of Cloud through CompTIA Cloud Essentials, and the foundations of virtualization through ITpreneurs Virtualization Essentials.

The Holistic Information Security Practitioner (HISP) Institute (HISPI) is an independent certification organization consisting of volunteers that are true information security practitioners, such as Chief Information Security Officers (CISOs), Information Security Officers (ISOs), Information Security Managers, Directors of Information Security, Security Analysts, Security Engineers and Technology Risk Managers from major corporations and organizations.
