CISSP (Certified Information Systems Security Professional)


Welcome to Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP). 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 8 domains that comprise a Common Body of Knowledge (CBK) for information systems security professionals. The course will help to prepare you for the exam through the discussion of the how & why of the exam questions and is designed as a test prep course.

You will develop strategies for studying for the exam, and for answering confusingly worded and seemingly unanswerable questions. The class includes eight exam simulation quizzes as well supplemental study materials. You will discover how networks are designed for security, and the components, protocols, and services that allow telecommunications to occur in a secure manner. Next, you will learn about the principles of security management and how to manage risk as part of a comprehensive information security management program. You will explore applications and systems development security controls. Then, will learn cryptography and system architecture. You will examine operations security and the appropriate controls to keep operations secure. You will learn business continuity planning and physical security to protect organizational assets and resources. Finally, you will explore law, investigations, and ethics with respect to information systems security and computer forensics.

The eight domains are:

  • 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


  • Security Governance Through Principles and Policies
  • Personnel Security and Risk Management Concepts
  • Business Continuity Planning
  • Laws, Regulations, and Compliance
  • Protecting Security of Assets
  • Cryptography and Symmetric Key Algorithms
  • PKI and Cryptographic Applications
  • Principles of Security Models, Design, and Capabilities
  • Security Vulnerabilities, Threats, and Countermeasures
  • Physical Security Requirements
  • Secure Network Architecture and Securing Network Components
  • Secure Communications and Network Attacks
  • Managing Identity and Authentication
  • Controlling and Monitoring Access
  • Security Assessment and Testing
  • Managing Security Operations
  • Preventing and Responding to Incidents
  • Disaster Recovery Planning
  • Incidents and Ethics
  • Software Development Security
  • Malicious Codes and Application Attacks


Students should have certifications in A+, Network+, or Security+, or possess equivalent professional experience. Students may have one or more of the following certifications or equivalent experience: MCSE, SCNP, CCNP, RHCE, LCE, CNE, SSCP, SANS, or GIAC.


Students pursuing CISSP training want to establish themselves as credible computer security professionals through a study of all 8 CISSP Common Body of Knowledge domains. Validating this knowledge is the goal of certification; therefore, students attending this training should also meet the requirements needed to sit for the CISSP certification exam. These include five years of direct professional work experience in one or more fields related to 8 CBK security domains, or a college degree and four years of experience. Check with (ISC)2 for the most up-to-date requirements. New certifications have emerged and will continue to emerge from (ISC)2, which may cause changes to base requirements.
