Why Pursue a CISSP?

Many companies are beginning to regard a CISSP certification as a requirement for their technical, mid-management, and senior IT management positions. Achieving the Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP) -the world's global security certification standard - proves high proficiency in foundation security disciplines. Offered through (ISC)2, one of the world's leading international security certification organization, the exam's stringent criteria sets the benchmark for excellence in security practice, requiring candidates to prove deep understanding of security concepts, principles, and methodologies.

The CISSP exam is rigorous, covering eight security domains essential for the protection of information systems, corporations and national infrastructures. Understanding that security is an enterprise wide problem, these domains provide the candidate with a broad understanding of the technical, managerial and human factors that must coordinate effectively to keep information and systems secure. These domains include:

  • The Eight Domains of the CISSP CBK (Common Body of Knowledge)
  • Security and Risk Management
  • Asset Security
  • Security Engineering
  • Communication and Network Security
  • Identity and Access Management
  • Security Assessment and Testing
  • Security Operations
  • Software Development Security

Using this course, students prepare for the exam, while at the same time obtaining essential security knowledge that can be immediately used to improve organizational security. This knowledge enhances services and products, secures business functions and infrastructures, provides better implementation processes, and can be used to restructure critical programs and procedures to help keep companies up-to-date on today's business and security strategies, technologies, and best practices.

Topics Covered

This course trains students in all areas of the security Common Body of Knowledge (CBK). They will learn about security policy development, secure software development procedures, network vulnerabilities, attack types and corresponding countermeasures, cryptography concepts and their uses, disaster recovery plans and procedures, risk analysis, crucial laws and regulations, forensics basics, computer crime investigation procedures, physical security, and much, much more. They will explore the contents and concepts that make up the diverse domains and learn how they work together to provide true "in-depth" defense.

  • Day 1: Common security concepts and holistic view of IT security
  • Day 2: Security and Risk Management, Asset Security
  • Day 3: Security Engineering, Communication and Network Security
  • Day 4: Identity and Access Management, Security Assessment and Testing
  • Day 5: Security Operations, Software Development Security

The coursework is difficult, and the exam is extremely challenging. Students should plan on evening hour study and after-class work assignments. Study groups are encouraged.
