CISSP - Certified Information Systems Security Professional Training Course (ISC) 2

The Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP) is the most globally recognized certification in the information security market. CISSP validates an information security professional’s deep technical and managerial knowledge and experience to effectively design, engineer, and manage the overall security posture of an organization. The broad spectrum of topics included in the CISSP Common Body of Knowledge (CBK) ensure its relevancy across all disciplines in the field of information security. Successful candidates are competent in the following 8 domains:

  • Security and Risk Management
  • Asset Security
  • Security Architecture and Engineering
  • Communication and Network Security
  • Identity and Access Management (IAM)
  • Security Assessment and Testing
  • Security Operations
  • Software Development Security

CISSP Audience

Candidates must have a minimum of 5 years cumulative paid full-time work experience in 2 or more of the 8
domains of the CISSP CBK. Earning a 4-year college degree or regional equivalent or an additional credential
from the (ISC)2 approved list will satisfy 1 year of the required experience. Education credit will only satisfy 1
year of experience.

A candidate that doesn’t have the required experience to become a CISSP may become an Associate of (ISC)2
by successfully passing the CISSP examination. The Associate of (ISC)2 will then have 6 years to earn the 5
years required experience.
