CISSP COURSE CURRICULUM

Developed and maintained by the International Information Systems Security Certification Consortium (ISC)2, CISSP is a premium, vendor-neutral certification that recognizes mastery of an international standard for information security and understanding of a Common Body of Knowledge (CBK). The CISSP course provides you with the knowledge and skills to pass the CISSP certification, after which youll have the ability to manage, operate, develop and plan an effective network security infrastructure.

CISSP candidates must meet the following requirements prior to taking the CISSP examination.

Effective 1 October 2007, a new endorsement policy will be in effect, requiring anyone who passes a CISSP, CAP, or SSCP exam to have their qualifications endorsed by another (ISC)2 credential holder.

Applicants must have a minimum of five years of direct full-time security professional work experience in one or more of the ten domains of the (ISC)2 CISSP CBK.

CISSP professional experience includes:

  • Work requiring special education or intellectual attainment, usually including a liberal education or college degree.
  • Work requiring habitual memory of a body of knowledge shared with others doing similar work.
  • Management of projects and/or other employees.
  • Supervision of the work of others while working with a minimum of supervision of one's self.
  • Work requiring the exercise of judgment, management decision-making, and discretion.
  • Work requiring the exercise of ethical judgment (as opposed to ethical behavior).
  • Creative writing and oral communication.
  • Teaching, instructing, training and the mentoring of others.
  • Research and development.
  • The specification and selection of controls and mechanisms (i.e. identification and authentication technology) (does not include the mere operation of these controls).
  • Applicable titles such as officer, director, manager, leader, supervisor, analyst, designer, cryptologist, cryptographer, cryptanalyst, architect, engineer, instructor, professor, investigator, consultant, salesman, representative, etc. Title may include programmer. It may include administrator, except where it applies to one who simply operates controls under the authority and supervision of others. Titles with the words "coder" or "operator" are likely excluded.

The applicant must meet the following requirements to qualify to sit for the examination: A. Subscribe to the (ISC)2 Code of Ethics; and B. Have a minimum five years* of direct full-time security professional work experience in two or more of the ten domains of the information systems security CBK. Waiver of Experience: If certain circumstances apply and with appropriate documentation, candidates are eligible to waive a maximum of two years of professional experience* as follows:

* One year waiver of the professional experience requirement for education. Candidates can substitute a maximum of one year of direct full-time security professional work experience described above if they have a four-year college degree OR Master's Degree in information security from a U.S. National Center of Academic Excellence in information Security (CAEIAE) or regional equivalent. If you hold both a four-year degree and a Master's degree, you may only apply for a one year waiver of experience.

* One-year waiver of the professional experience requirement for holding an additional credential on the (ISC)2 approved list. Valid experience includes information systems (IS) security-related work performed as a practitioner, auditor, consultant, investigator or instructor, that requires IS security knowledge and involves the direct application of that knowledge. The five years of experience must be the equivalent of actual fulltime IS security work (not just IS security responsibilities for a five year* period); this requirement is cumulative, however, and may have been accrued over a much longer period of time.

Course Topics:

  • Information Security and Risk Management
  • Security Architecture and Design
  • Access Control
  • Application Security
  • Operations Security
  • Cryptography
  • Physical (Environmental) Security
  • Telecommunications and Network Security
