What is the CGRC Certification:

The Certified in Governance, Risk and Compliance (CGRC)) certification confirms an individual’s knowledge, skill, and experience required for authorizing and maintaining information systems within the new Risk Management Framework as outlined in NIST SP 800-37 Rev 1.

The CGRC credential is appropriate for commercial markets, civilian and local governments, and the U.S. Federal government including the State Department and the Department of Defense (DoD). Job functions such as authorization officials, system owners, information owners, information system security officers, and certifiers as well as all senior system managers apply.

CGRC applies to those responsible for formalizing processes used to assess risk and establish security requirements and documentation. Commercial organizations, civilian and local governments, and the U.S. federal government – including the State Department and Department of Defense (DoD) – rely on CGRC's expertise to ensure that information systems not only have the appropriate security measures in place, but that they are also aligned with the organization’s level of exposure to risk.
