Continuing Education Credits
The CISSP Certification is Department of Defense (DoD) 8570 approved for the following Information Assurance (IA) position categories:
- Information Assurance Technical (IAT) Level III
- Information Assurance Management (IAM) Level III
This CISSP Certification Exam Prep 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. Our focus is to help you pass the exam.
In this CISSP training, you will identify and reinforce the major security subjects from the eight domains of the (ISC)² CISSP CBK:
- Analyze components of the Security and Risk Management domain.
- Analyze components of the Asset Security domain.
- Analyze components of the Security Engineering domain.
- Analyze components of the Communications and Network Security domain.
- Analyze components of the Identity and Access Management domain.
- Analyze components of the Security Assessment and Testing domain.
- Analyze components of the Security Operations domain.
- Analyze components of the Software Development Security domain.
To obtain the CISSP certification, you must have a minimum of five years of direct full-time information security work experience in at least two of the following (ISC)² CISSP CBK eight domains:
- Security and Risk Management (Security, Risk, Compliance, Law, Regulations, and Business Continuity)
- Asset Security (Protecting Security of Assets)
- Security Engineering (Engineering and Management of Security)
- Communication and Network Security (Designing and Protecting Network Security
- Identity and Access Management (Controlling Access and Managing Identity)
- Security Assessment and Testing (Designing, Performing, and Analyzing Security Testing)
- Security Operations (Foundational Concepts, Investigations, Incident Management, and Disaster Recovery)
- Software Development Security (Understanding, Applying, and Enforcing Software Security)
The CISSP Certification exam is in the CAT (Computer Adaptive Testing) format. The CAT exam format aims to provide a more precise evaluation of the candidate’s ability while allowing candidates to complete the exam in half the time.
- The CISSP Exam has 100-150 multiple choice and “advanced innovative” questions.
- Passing grade is 700 out of 1000 points.
