COURSE AGENDA

The CISSP draws from a comprehensive, up-to-date, global common body of knowledge that ensures security leaders have a deep knowledge and understanding of new threats, technologies, regulations, standards, and practices. The CISSP exam tests one’s competence in the 8 domains of the CISSP CBK, which cover:

  1. Security and Risk Management
  2. Asset Security
  3. Security Engineering
  4. Communications and Network Security
  5. Identity and Access Management
  6. Security Assessment and Testing
  7. Security Operations
  8. Software Development Security

PREREQUISITES

CISSP® Eligibility Requirements:
Candidates must have a minimum of 5 years cumulative paid full-time work experience in two or more of the 8 domains of the (ISC)² CISSP CBK®. Candidates may receive a one year experience waiver with a 4-year college degree, or regional equivalent or additional credential from the (ISC)² approved list, thus requiring four years of direct full-time professional security work experience in 2 or more of the 8 domains of the CISSP CBK.

BENEFITS

  • Surveys by professional organizations and market research firms indicated certified employees earn more (IDC, SANS)
  • Internally, your certification may lead to a promotion or raise, your mileage may vary
  • Great demand for certified individuals around the world and in most industries
  • More job postings include requirements for (or desire to obtain) certification
  • Because information security is important throughout an organization, your job may evolve
  • There are 74% more cyber security jobs today than there were a year ago. 51% of companies intend to hire information security specialists this year. Not all of those jobs will necessarily require CISSP, but since virtually every other security certification out there now is, for better or for worse, a subset of CISSP, having a CISSP qualifies you for more of those jobs than anything else.
  • Most of these high-paying cyber security jobs are not for recent computer science graduates; instead companies are looking to hire IT professionals with five to 15 years of experience with security systems and processes as well as related certifications.
  • Security jobs are unlikely to be outsourced. In a time when even bridge and road construction is being outsourced–seriously, cities are hiring Chinese companies to bring in their workers and build infrastructure–that’s an important consideration.
  • Better visibility to customers that need security expertise and services as it easier to sell services with certified employees. Customers may not know the acronyms, but they always seem impressed by them.
  • Surveys by professional organizations and market research firms indicated certified employees earn a whole lot more
  • Internally, your certification may lead to a promotion or raise, your mileage may vary
  • Great demand for certified individuals around the world and in most industries
  • More job postings include requirements for (or desire to obtain) certification
  • Because information security is important throughout an organization, your job may evolve

8. If the examination isn’t particularly difficult, why don’t more people pass it?
What makes the examination difficult is the expansive knowledge base it covers. It’s difficult to develop expertise in all eight domains.

9.  Are the questions in the Study Guides really representative of examination questions?
The study guides questions are good examples of the format and type of questions you would see on the exam but are not necessarily representative of the difficulty.
The domains that are not commonly used in every day security management such as cryptography, system architecture, and physical security usually score the lowest.

4. If the candidate is selected for audit, they must successfully pass that audit of their assertions regarding professional experience.

15. What is the endorsement process?
The Endorsement Process:
A candidate applying for certification must be endorsed by another (ISC)² certified professional in good standing before the credential can be awarded.
A candidate receiving a pass letter informing the candidate that he or she has passed the certification examination will also receive a blank endorsement form. The form must be completed and signed by an (ISC)² certified professional. The (ISC)² certified professional is anyone who:

  • Is able to attest to the candidate’s professional experience
  • Is an active (ISC)² credential holder in good standing
  • The endorser will attest that the candidate’s assertions regarding professional experience are true to the best of the endorser’s knowledge, and that the candidate is in good standing within the information security industry.
  •  (ISC)² Services staff will review the form upon receipt to ensure that it is properly completed and executed. If so, (ISC)² Services will mail you your certificate.
  •  Please note: A percentage of the candidates who pass an (ISC)² examination and submit endorsements will be randomly subjected for audit and required to submit additional information, as required, for verification.
  • If you cannot find a certified individual to act as an endorser, (ISC)² will act as an endorser for you in consideration of which, (ISC)² will require the same documentation that is submitted by a candidate who is randomly selected to be audited.

16.  What happen if you get audited?
A percentage of the candidates who pass the CISSP examination and submit endorsements will be randomly subjected to audit and required to submit a resume for formal review and investigation. If audited (subject to results), the credential will be awarded within seven business days and notification sent via e-mail. Naturally, there may be some delays due to mail service or the number of forms received. Also, audits may require additional time for verifying information and/or contacting references.

17. What I need to do once I have the certification?
Post Certification – Now that you are a CISSP
Once an individual has successfully passed an (ISC)² credentialing examination, continuing education is required to maintain their certification in good standing.
In addition to paying an annual maintenance fee and subscribing to the Code of Ethics, a CISSP must earn continuing professional education credits every three years – or retake their certification examinations. CPE credits are earned by performing activities largely related to the information systems security profession including, but not limited to, the following:

  • Educational courses or seminar attendance.
  • Association chapter membership and meeting attendance – Like ISSA, ISACA, etc.
  • Security conference attendance.
  • Vendor presentations.
  • University/college course completion.
  • Providing security training.
  • Publishing security articles or books.
  • Self-study courses that are related to the industry.
  • Volunteer work, including serving on (ISC)² volunteer committees.
