IT security pros can beef up their skills in new online security standards certification programs this fall.

The courses will be offered by the International Information Security Certification Consortium (ISC2) and Web-based e-learning company VCampus, the parties said Monday.

The Web-based curriculum will offer Systems Security Certified Practitioner (SSCP) and Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP) review seminars preparatory to certification testing, which will continue to take place off-line in ISC2 facilities.

While precise pricing details have not been announced, ISC2 expected charges for the multi-course program to start at around $400 per course, with introductory specials, and multiple course purchases receiving discount pricing. Pre-registration was expected to begin within the next week to ten days.
