Course Description

The CSSSP® (Certified Space Systems Security Professional) qualification is one of the most qualified certifications in the space security industry, demonstrating an advanced knowledge of space cybersecurity. Additionally, a CSSSP certification carries more weight every day as organizations and agencies look to hire professionals in space security to protect their interests from continual advance of cybercrime. In coordination with ISSSS (International Society of Space and Security Specialists) or is4.org, Tonex has created the Certified Space Security Specialist Professional certification in order to train current and Space and Intelligence personnel in how to more effectively manage space security issues.

is4.org (International Society of Space and Security Specialists/IS4) is an international membership association for space and security professionals committed to helping its members learn, grow, certify and thrive. We empower professionals who touch every aspect of space and security. Our CSSSP certification and other space cybersecurity path proves you have what it takes to effectively plan, architect, design, implement and manage a best-in-class space cybersecurity program.
