Course Description Overview:

Welcome to Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP)®: Fifth Edition . With your completion of the prerequisites and necessary years of experience, you are firmly grounded in the knowledge requirements of today’s security professional. This course will expand upon your knowledge by addressing the essential elements of the eight domains that comprise a Common Body of Knowledge (CBK)® for information systems security professionals. The course offers a job-related approach to the security process, while providing a framework to prepare for CISSP certification.


CISSP is the premier certification for today’s information systems security professional. It remains the premier certification because the sponsoring organization, the International Information Systems Security Certification Consortium, Inc. (ISC)2 ®, regularly updates the test by using subject matter experts (SMEs) to make sure the material and the questions are relevant in today’s security environment. By defining eight security domains that comprise a CBK, industry standards for the information systems security professional have been established. The skills and knowledge you gain in this course will help you master the eight CISSP domains and ensure your credibility and success within the information systems security field.


Course Objectives:

In this course, you will identify and reinforce the major security subjects from the eight domains of the (ISC)2 CISSP CBK.
