In this intermediate (ISC)² skills training, Keith Barker and Ben Finkel cover the CISSP methodology objectives in the CISSP exam, which is the one required exam to earn the CISSP certification.
The CISSP is one of the most valued certifications available to IT security professionals — and employers. There’s a reason for that. CISSP not only validates that you have the skills necessary to design, implement, and maintain your organization’s cybersecurity programs. The CISSP also validates that you have the experience, too. (ISC)² maintains a stringent qualification regime for all its certifications, which includes required documented work experience and a sponsorship. For the CISSP, you’ll need to show a minimum of five (5) years cumulative paid work experience in two or more of the eight domains of the CISSP CBK.
After finishing this CISSP Certification training, you'll have a broad understanding of the eight domains of the CISSP CBK, be ready to take on the CISSP exam, and be in a good position to move into more senior-level security roles.
For anyone who leads an IT team, this (ISC)² training can be used for CISSP exam prep, onboarding new security professionals, individual or team training plans, or as a (ISC)² reference resource.
