CISSP Certification Training Course Hands-on

Gain core knowledge and experience to successfully implement and manage security programs in this official (ISC)2 CISSP Certification Training course

This CISSP Certification Training course is the most comprehensive review of information security concepts and industry best practices, and covers the eight domains of the official CISSP CBK (Common Body of Knowledge). You will gain knowledge in information security that will increase your ability to successfully implement and manage security programs in any organization or government entity.

With CISSP Certification Training, you will learn how to determine 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. Policies, concepts, principles, structures, and standards used to establish criteria for the protection of information assets are also covered in this CISSP Certification Training course.

Why Become a CISSP:

Here are just a few reasons to pursue the CISSP certification. You will:

• Catapult your career. As other CISSPs will tell you, this certification will raise your visibility and credibility, improve your job security, create new opportunities for you or even increase your salary — depending on your country and employer. On average, (ISC)² members report having 35 percent higher salaries than non-members. (Source: “2017 Global Information Security Workforce Study”)

• Challenge yourself to grow and be better. The CISSP exam is a rigorous test of your knowledge. But well beyond the exam, the CISSP is about reaching a deeper, better and broader understanding of the common body of knowledge for cybersecurity. It’s an exhilarating feeling to become a CISSP.

• Give yourself access to (and respect from) a global community of peers. Information security careers can feel isolating at times. With the CISSP, you earn membership in (ISC)² — a global community of thought leaders. You’ll meet experts who share your passion. You’ll be able to share ideas and find new ways to improve your craft. And you’ll open yourself up to connections around the world.

• Strengthen the skills you need to protect your organization. The CISSP focuses on the practical application of cybersecurity knowledge and tools. It explores actual, on-the-job issues and risks. And it gives you a systematic approach to cybersecurity. All of this means you’ll expand the skills and knowledge you need to fulfill your duty to your organization.
