About GlobalCISO Leadership Foundation
Preparing the Next-Gen CISOs
The GlobalCISO Leadership Foundation (GCLF) is an independent, CISO-led foundation that aims to advance mentor-driven, quality education for cybersecurity professionals. CISOs from across the world work together to create new learning models for emerging security leaders and help them run effective security programs across industry verticals.
The Foundation’s flagship initiative, the GCISO Certification by GlobalCISO Leadership Foundation™, has been developed to equip senior security professionals with the knowledge, tools, and strategic thinking necessary to solve complex, real-world problems, and succeed in the CISO role. The Certification’s goal is to prepare the next generation of cybersecurity leaders for the challenges associated with a rapidly changing cyber-threat landscape.
Other initiatives include an introductory course in cybersecurity for gifted students and scholarship programs for out-of-work cybersecurity executives looking to enhance their educational qualifications.
