Achieving the entry-level Certified Cybersecurity (CSX) Practitioner certification validates your ability to serve on the front lines of cybersecurity, following established procedures and defined processes and working mostly with known problems on a single system. The vendor-neutral CSX Practitioner certification confirms that you have firewall, patching and anti-virus experience and can implement common security controls and perform vulnerability scans and some analysis.
ISACA built the CSX Practitioner certification according to ISO/ANSI guidelines, enabling its acceptance within 8570 at all levels. ISACA's CSX Program CSX Practitioner certification is part of ISACA's Cybersecurity Nexus™ (CSX) program, created to help address the global cybersecurity skills crisis head on with thought leadership, training and certification. Building on the strength of ISACA's globally recognized expertise, the CSX program is aligned with globally accepted standards and frameworks, including the NIST Framework for Improving Critical Infrastructure Cybersecurity, NIST SP 800-53 Revision 4, ISO 27000 and COBIT 5.
