Security Industry Association Launches New CSPM Review Course

“Unlike our SPM training courses, which dive deep into explaining key concepts and best practices associated with leading technical security projects, the CSPM Review Course aligns succinctly with the certification exam blueprint.” – Dr. Elli Voorhees, director of learning and development, SIA

The Security Industry Association (SIA) has launched a new course to help industry professionals prepare to take the Certified Security Project Manager (CSPM) exam. The new CSPM Review Course expands SIA’s CSPM offerings; it will be offered virtually and will be taught by CSPM-certified instructors with extensive experience in security project management.

The course covers the key areas of knowledge and topics tested by the CSPM exam, shares strategies on how to prepare for the exam and gives course participants a chance to ask the instructors specific questions. Course registrants will also receive a CSPM Review Course Student Workbook that provides reference materials, a study plan worksheet, educational content on domain-specific knowledge and insights into the test-taking experience.

The CSPM is a highly respected industry certification which demonstrates that the credential holder can manage complex, technical security projects. It is often earned by security integration professionals, consultants, security managers and other practitioners and professionals who are regularly providing oversight and support on security projects.

While taking the new CSPM Review Course does not guarantee success on the exam, SIA Director of Learning and Development Dr. Elli Voorhees said the course was designed to match the needs of many SIA members who have asked for a course that prepares them for the CSPM exam.

“Unlike our SPM training courses, which dive deep into explaining key concepts and best practices associated with leading technical security projects, the CSPM Review Course aligns succinctly with the certification exam blueprint,” said Voorhees. “Participants customize a plan of study based upon their own self-assessment and focus on the areas where they may need improvement using the resource guides provided.”

The first CSPM Review Course will be offered May 18-20, 2021, from 4-6 p.m. EDT each day. Registration is $595 for SIA members, and the course will be taught by Rex Allen of Allied Universal Technology Services and Brendan McFall of Northland Controls. Full course details can be found here.

The new CSPM Review Course rounds out a full complement of SIA’s Security Project Management (SPM) courses. Additional courses include the Basics of SPM Course and the full SPM Training Seminar.

The Basics of SPM Course provides 10 hours of education and teaches the fundamentals of managing security projects; it has proven especially valuable for new project managers in the security industry and those aspiring to project management roles. The full SPM Training Seminar is a 20-hour in-depth course that provides extensive learning on security project management and is often attended by project managers, lead technicians and program managers at security integration firms, in addition to corporate security and government security practitioner teams.

All SPM courses are live, instructor-led courses which are offered virtually. An on-demand version of the Basics of SPM course is also available on SIA’s website, and information on all courses and a current schedule of course dates can be found on the SPM page.

Nearly simultaneously with the launch of the new CSPM Review Course, SIA will also now be offering remote, virtual test taking for the CSPM exam starting May 1. For details on how the new remote CSPM exam testing works, please contact SIA Associate Director of Certification Katie Greatti at kgreatti@securityindustry.org.

Pending Data Protection and Security Laws At-A-Glance: APAC

Avatar

Published

on

In our continuing quest to provide a global overview of cyber-related legislation and regulation we have focused on the latest laws protecting PII in the United States, Regulation through Global Data Protection and Security Laws, and APAC Data Protection and Security Laws. This is an overview of 3 soon-to-be-enacted regulations that will change the APAC data privacy legal landscape.

CHINA

On June 1, 2021, the National Standard of Information Security Technology – Guidelines on Personal Information Security Impact Assessment will go into effect. According to global law firm Detons, “The Guidance aims to guide the assessment of the potential impacts on individuals’ rights and interests as well as the effectiveness of security protective measures adopted when carrying out personal information processing activities, which is similar to the data protection impact assessment (“DPIA”) under the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).”

Draft PIPL

On October 21, 2020, a draft PRC Personal Information Protection Law (Draft PIPL) was published for review. Similar in many ways to GDPR, the PIPL, if passed, will require:

  • Organizations outside China that fall within the PIPL’s scope are required to appoint representatives or establish entities within China responsible for the protection of personal information
  • Personal Information Processors are required to perform and maintain a record of risk assessments where processing activity may have a significant impact on individuals, including international transfers of personal information, processing of sensitive personal information, automated decision-making, and disclosure of personal information to third parties.
  • That the processing of personal information must be lawful. In other words, there must be a legal basis for processing data such as consent
  • Individuals are informed that processing is happening, to restrict or object to the processing of their data, and to obtain a copy of, update, or delete their information.

Furthermore, it outlines strict requirements for international transfers of personal information. In addition, penalties for noncompliance have yet to be finalized but are so far rather austere. Proposed sanctions include the suspension of business activities and revocation of business permits or licences, the “blacklisting” of companies and fines up to 5% of a company’s yearly earnings. 

JAPAN

On June 5, 2020, the Japanese legislature passed several amendments (“Amendment Act”) to the Act on Protection of Personal Information of Japan (“APPI”) created to expand protections for personal data and impose new obligations on all businesses that use personal data for business purposes, including non-profit organizations.

Slated to go into effect the spring of 2022, one of the major changes it will bring about are new provisions expanding an individual’s rights to require the deletion or disclosure of personal information (‘PI’):

  • where there is a possibility of violating the data subject’s rights or legitimate interests
  • in the event of a breach of the APPI via transfer to a 3rd party
  • to include short-term data which is kept for 6 months or less; and
  • allowing the data subject to request the format of the disclosure of their data, including in a digital format.

India

Inspired by GDPR, India’s Personal Data Protection Bill (PDP) was introduced to overhaul India’s current data protection regulations outlined in the Information Technology Act of 2000. As that act was mainly concerned with ensuring the legal recognition of e-commerce within India, it does not include specific legislation on data protection aside from establishing the right to compensation for improper disclosure of personal information.

According to the bill’s preamble, the goal of PDP is to “create a collective culture that fosters a free and fair digital economy, respecting the informational privacy of individuals, and ensuring empowerment, progress and innovation through digital governance and inclusion.” Similar to GDPR, PDP establishes data privacy as a fundamental right and calls for the creation of an independent new regulatory authority, the Data Protection Authority (DPA), to carry out this law. 

In terms of how PDP and GDPR differ, you can find a comprehensive comparison of the two laws here. In summary though, the differences can be boiled down into 3 key areas:

  • India’s central government retains the power to exempt any government agency from the bill’s requirements for reasons such as national security.
  • The government now has the right to order firms to share any of the non-personal data they collect with the government
  • Personal and sensitive data must be stored and processed in India. Though there are exceptions to these rules, PDP’s restrictive regulations pose a number of challenges for organizations looking to do business in India and are, therefore, one of the most hotly contested provisions in the bill. 

Though DLA Piper expects the law to go into effect in late 2021, other legal experts aren’t so sure. Ongoing backlash pertaining to a number of its more restrictive provisions have resulted in multiple revisions and delays.  In addition to the issues surrounding data localization mentioned before, the bill “has also attracted criticism on various grounds such as the exceptions created for the state, the limited checks imposed on state surveillance, and regarding various deficiencies in the structures and processes of the proposed Data Protection Authority,” according to The Hindu
