Information Systems Security Professional training offers a standard competency for entry-level security analyst. An Information Systems Security Professional certification means that an individual possesses the knowledge, skills, and technical aptitude necessary to successfully implement and manage a security program. The CISSP certification is sought by IT professionals with job titles such as security auditor, security systems engineer, security architect and chief information security officer.
The Certified Information Systems Security Professional material introduces participants to all eight domains of advanced security knowledge covered on the CISSP exam. Participants learn how to model threats, assess risks, plan business continuity, protect assets, and engineer strong security into complex systems. Participants also learn how to protect networks, communications, access, and identities; assess and test security, and manage security operations. Once complete, participants will have core skills for designing, implementing, and managing IT security for entire organizations.
• National Certification: (Not included in program)
- Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP) certification from (ISC)2
IMPORTANT: In addition to this training program, earning certification requires the following:
- 5 years of security work experience: You must be able to show proof of five paid full-time years of work experience in at least two of the eight CISSP CBK (Common Body of Knowledge) domains, which are Security and Risk Management, Asset Security, Security Engineering, Communications and Network Security, Identity and Access Management, Security Assessment and Testing, Security Operations, and Software Development Security.
- Get endorsed to become a CISSP: Once you complete the CISSP exam, you'll have to subscribe to the (ISC)2 Code of Ethics and complete an endorsement form to become a CISSP. The endorsement form must be signed by another (ISC)2 certified professional who verifies your professional work experience. You must submit the completed form within nine months of passing your exam to become fully certified, because passing the exam doesn't automatically grant you certification status.
Note: Students will receive a Certificate of Completion after completing the course.
