CSX Cybersecurity Practitioner Certification (CSX-P) Study Group

The ISACA CSX Cybersecurity Practitioner Study Group prepares participants for the CSX Cybersecurity Practitioner (CSX-P) examination, an intermediate level certification for IT and cybersecurity professionals who want to demonstrate technical skills and abilities in cybersecurity.

CSX-P is part of ISACA’s Cybersecurity Nexus Platform.

The Cybersecurity Nexus Platform

ISACA is currently the only organization in cybersecurity that provides a single, comprehensive source for performance-based certification, networking, professional membership, training, and education.

This is ISACA’s Cybersecurity Nexus™ (CSX), the leading cybersecurity resource, offering everything you need to take a step forward and stay ahead of the curve in the ever-changing cyber landscape.

CSX Practitioner Certification

The CSX Practitioner certification exam (CSX-P) is part of ISACA’s Cybersecurity Nexus Training and Certification Program.

CSX-P is the only comprehensive performance certification that tests an individual’s ability to perform globally cybersecurity tasks spanning five security functions: identify, protect, detect, respond and recover. 

This certification was developed for experienced information security professionals in order to reflect an updated job practice in the cybersecurity landscape. 

ISACA offers CSX-P through a unique, self-paced, fast-track training and examination format: the ACCELERATED CSX CYBERSECURITY PRACTITIONER CERTIFICATION SUITE, where candidates can train, test and certify in a 3-step process:

  1. Candidates purchase the ACCELERATED CSX CYBERSECURITY PRACTITIONER CERTIFICATION SUITE and they have a 6-month access to 10 self-paced online practice labs. 
    Through hands-on learning and practice, they apply basic concepts to pre-designed cybersecurity scenarios, utilize an extensive array of open-source tools that they can use in their daily jobs, and enhance their technical skills by learning how to deal with real threats in a live network environment through the the use of virtual labs.
    Candidates only need to have a high-speed internet connection, a computer and a browser. No special configuration is needed.
  2. The exam certification is included in the package: candidates who purchase the ACCELERATED CSX CYBERSECURITY PRACTITIONER CERTIFICATION SUITE also get the voucher for the examination and once they finish the 10 practice labs, they can proceed with the examination in the same virtual environment.
  3. Upon successful completion of the 1-hour assessment, candidates complete the online certification application form.

Prerequisites: There are no typical prerequisites for purchasing the ACCELERATED CSX CYBERSECURITY PRACTITIONER CERTIFICATION SUITE, completing the 10 virtual labs and taking the certification test. 

However, in order to get the CSXP Certification title you also need to have the following prerequisites, which you fill in your certification application form once you pass the exam.

CSXP candidates should hold at least one of the following certifications: CISA, CRISC, CISM, CGEIT, ECSA, CEH, LPT, GCIH, OSCP, GPEN, CySA+, CISSP, CSX Penetration Testing Overview (CPTO), or CSX Cybersecurity Fundamentals


If the candidate does not hold at least one of the above certifications, it is recommended that they have 3 years of experience in 3 or more of the 5 CSX-P cybersecurity domains which align with those of the globally accepted NIST Cybersecurity Framework: Identify, Protect, Detect, Respond and Recover.
