The IISP does this through accrediting skills and competence, by sharing best practice and by providing a network of support and guidance on individual skill development. It speaks with an authoritative voice and its competency based memberships are widely recognised in the information security industry.

Working closely with the Information Security community, the IISP has a growing membership of over 1,700 individual members across private and government sectors, 27 Corporate Member Organisations and ten Academic Partners. At the heart of the Institute is the IISP Skills Framework©2012 which is widely accepted as the de facto standard for measuring competency of Information Security Professionals.

The IISP Skills Framework has also been adopted by e-Skills UK to develop a National Occupational Standard for Information Security.
