CERTIFIED INFORMATION SYSTEMS SECURITY PROFESSIONAL

Course Description

Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP) is a registered trademark and course developed by (ISC)² and the most globally recognized certification in the information security market.

CCSP course and certification exam ensure professional’s deep technical and managerial knowledge and experience to effectively design, engineer, and manage the overall security posture of an organization.

Backed by (ISC)², the globally recognized not-for-profit organization dedicated to advancing the cyber, information, software, and infrastructure security field, the CISSP was the first credential in the field of information security to meet the stringent requirements of ISO/IEC Standard 17024.

The course is designed purposely to give participants an idea to decide how valuable the CISSP is, and understand to attain the certification.

This course is based on guidelines to cover the below following topics / domains and provide participants a curve in there preparation of CISSP Exam.

  • Domain 1 – Security and Risk Management
  • Domain 2 – Asset Security
  • Domain 3 – Security Architecture and Engineering
  • Domain 4 – Communication and Network Security
  • Domain 5 – Identity and Access Management (IAM)
  • Domain 6 – Security Assessment and Testing
  • Domain 7 – Security Operations
  • Domain 8 – Software Development Security

This preparation course focuses and develops expertise in defining IT Security best practices in designing, building, managing, architecting, maintaining and controlling a secure business environment.

By attending this course, professionals will get a comprehensive review of the knowledge and skills required across security policy development and management, as well as a technical understanding of a wide range of security controls.

Upon successful passing the CISSP Exam, professional will gain the skills and knowledge necessary to:

  • Understand and apply the concepts of risk assessment, risk analysis, data classification, and security awareness and Implement risk management and the principles used to support it.
  • Apply a comprehensive and rigorous method for describing a current and/or future structure and behaviour for an organization's security processes, information security systems, personnel, and organizational sub-units so that these practices and processes align with the organization's core goals and strategic direction to
    • Address the frameworks and policies, concepts, principles, structures, and standards used to establish criteria for the protection of information assets, as well as to assess the effectiveness of that protection and establish the foundation of a comprehensive and proactive security program to ensure the protection of an organization’s information assets
    • Examine the principles, means, and methods of applying mathematical algorithms and data transformations to information to ensure its integrity, confidentiality, and authenticity
  • Understand the structures, transmission methods, transport formats, and security measures used to provide confidentiality, integrity, and availability for transmissions over private and public communications networks and media and identify risks that can be quantitatively and qualitatively measured to support the building of business cases to drive proactive security in the enterprise.
  • Offer greater visibility into determining who or what may have altered data or system information, potentially affecting the integrity of those asset and match an entity, such as a person or a computer system, with the actions that entity takes against valuable assets, allowing organizations to have a better understanding of the state of their security posture.
  • Plan for technology development and evaluate the system design against mission requirements and identify where competitive prototyping and other evaluation techniques fit in the process
  • Protect and control information processing assets in centralized and distributed environments and execute the daily tasks required to keep security services operating reliably and efficiently.
  • Understand the Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC) and how to apply security to it, and identify which security control(s) are appropriate for the development environment, and assess the effectiveness of software security
