The SCCISP Certification is an IoT Security Institute Curriculum which provides a certification course offering professional recognition, and an industry recognised credentialed career pathway for Cyber and Privacy professionals working within the IoT- IIoT Smart Cities and Critical Infrastructure sectors. Earning the SCCISP proves you have the necessary skills to securely design, implement and manage IoT-IIoT Smart Cities and Critical Infrastructure Eco-Systems.
The SCCISP prepares IT/OT and privacy professionals with the necessary skills to address "smart world" cyber and privacy challenges.
To be eligible for the SCCISP certification candidates shall abide by the following requirements and code of ethics:
•Have a minimum of 5 years+ experience within the cyber and/or privacy and data protection industries
• Promote a best practice methodology with regard to cyber security and privacy management
• Share knowledge with those inside and outside of the cyber and privacy community
• Strive to advance information on cyber security and privacy personally and professional

• Refrain from intentionally maligning or damaging the reputation of peers, colleagues or employers
• Use sound and informed judgment when dealing with sensitive personally identifiable information (PII), Privacy Act data.
The SCCISP consists of 10 Domains.Each Domain addresses a specific IoT - IIoT Security body of knowledge.
The SCCISP Foundation course provides a module based approach to course delivery and content learning.In addition, critical to the delivery of the SCCISP Foundation courseware is the inclusion of the Smart Cities and Critical Infrastructure Framework as an assessment module .Unlike other certification programs, the SCCISP integrates the global released IoT Security Institute Framework into its training modules.This allows SCCISP students to learn the methodologies and processes in deploying IoT security controls and processes whilst utilising an industry recognised framework. This academic and deplyment based methodlogy provides security professionals with the necessary training and tools to deploy security and privacy best practices by design,at all stages and levels of an IoT Eco -System.

The SCCISP Foundation certification comprises a mixture of video presentations, reading material, quizzes and assignment based activities.Students are required to complete all modules and associated activities to be successful in their SCCISP studies. Students will also be required to assess and secure an IoT Smart Cities solution utilising the IoTSI Smart Cities and Critical Infrastructure Framework. A consultative and deployment based framework which when successful completed attests a SCCISP certified individual is trained and industry equipped to address real world IoT security and privacy requirements within the IoT and IIoT built environment.
This Industry based approach to cyber and privacy IoT challenges ensures employers and industry professionals that SCCISP certified professionals have the broad range of skills,both practical and academic that extend beyond traditional security certification.These skills incorporate the unique challenges facing IoT security service delivery and enablement.Cities, Buildings and Communities are working spaces, information portals and community information exchanges that require appropriate security controls to meet their future potential.
The SCCISP professional is trained to deliver these complex security skillsets. To achieve this, the SCCISP requires training not simply in Cyber or Privacy controls, but requires the necessary skillls to articulate these controls and their importance throughout the design and build process.Maintaining channels of communication between a new set of stakeholders and industry professionals.
These include; building occupiers, facilities managers, engineers, designers and urban planners.Engaging these professionals in a collaborative manner ensuring cyber security and privacy challenges affecting building and smart city environments are managed in a "by design" manner.The SCCISP certification extends traditional security training to address these smart world eco -sytstem security and privacy challenges.
