IDPro®, an open, global non-profit association created to define, support and improve the digital identity profession, today announced the CIDPRO™ (Certified Identity Professional) program.

During her keynote presentation at Identiverse, Sarah Cecchetti, IDPro co-founder and chair of the Certification Committee, announced the open registration for the CIDPRO exam. The CIDPRO designation provides identity professionals and employers with a method for validating foundational Identity Access Management (IAM) industry knowledge. Developed through a meticulous peer-review process with a diverse team of global identity professionals, CIDPRO is a long-awaited, rigorous, vendor-neutral certification program.

To obtain the CIDPRO designation, candidates must pass the CIDPRO exam which tests the individual’s knowledge in a range of industry subject matter including functional and operational elements of an identity solution, core concepts of security for identity, and rules and standards as well as identifiers, identity lifecycle and identity proofing.

“The CIDPRO professional designation is a global credential that validates personal experience and defines a standard skill set for the IAM industry,” said Ian Glazer, IDPro Founder and President. “In addition to increasing credibility through verified vendor-neutral foundational knowledge, CIDPRO also demonstrates commitment to the industry.”

Registration for the CIDPRO exam is now open and interested candidates are encouraged to register.
