At present, ASIS and the Professional Certification Board are concentrating on promoting and supporting the CPP, PCI, and PSP designations. Preparing new certifications takes an enormous amount of time and effort to develop the areas for testing, identify references, and create and validate questions. A large number of potential exam candidates are also a requirement.
Many people have suggested that ASIS should offer certifications in the computer/network security field. Our research into computer security indicates that there are several successful organizations and certifications already in existence. At this time it would be difficult to provide a new and unique certification in the computer security arena when so much is already in place.
