Tomorrow's Solutions Today

One of the most important aspects of the Falkland Group's work is our strict adherence to our ethical standards. A company's assessment is only as good as their integrity. That is why we are bound to the following professional codes of ethics.

The CISSP code prescribes: Protect society, the commonwealth, and the infrastructure. Act honorably, honestly, justly, responsibly, and legally. Provide diligent and competent service to principals. Advance and protect the profession.

The CISM requires it's members to: Support the implementation of, and encourage compliance with, appropriate standards, procedures and controls for information systems. Perform their duties with objectivity, due diligence and professional care, in accordance with professional standards and best practices. Serve in the interest of stakeholders in a lawful and honest manner, while maintaining high standards of conduct and character, and not engage in acts discreditable to the profession. Maintain the privacy and confidentiality of information obtained in the course of their duties unless disclosure is required by legal authority. Such information shall not be used for personal benefit or released to inappropriate parties. Maintain competency in their respective fields and agree to undertake only those activities, which they can reasonably expect to complete with professional competence. Inform appropriate parties of the results of work performed; revealing all significant facts known to them. Support the professional education of stakeholders in enhancing their understanding of information systems security and control.

CCE members must: Demonstrate commitment and diligence in performance of assigned duties. Demonstrate integrity in completing professional assignments. Maintain the utmost objectivity in all forensic examinations and accurately present findings. Conduct examinations based on established, validated principles. Abide by the highest moral and ethical standards and obey the by-laws of the ISFCE. When conducting examinations, obtain evidence or other documentation that will establish a reasonable basis for any opinion rendered. Testify truthfully in all matters before any board, court or proceeding. Avoid any action that would appear to be a conflict of interest. Comply with all legal orders of the courts. Strive to maintain professionalism in assigned duties. Thoroughly examine all evidence in a case unless the scope of the examination is limited by court order or other mandate.

The Certified Information System Security Professional (CISSP) credential is conferred by ISC2. Recipients must demonstrate five years of Information Assurance experience, pass the certification exam, and maintain continuing professional education credits.

The Certified Information Security Manager (CISM) credential is conferred by ISACA to IA professionals who demonstrate 5 years of experience in the field, pass the certification exam, and commit to fulfilling continuing coursework in the field.

In a largely unregulated industry the CCE certification is quickly gaining prominence as a credible mark of technical proficiency, ethical regard, and commitment to continuing education in the field. When hiring a forensic examiner ensure that you ask about certification.
