The CISSP Program
CISSP certified individuals are trained to ensure organizations meet information system security challenges,now and into the future. Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP) is an information security certification developed by the International Information Systems Security Certification Consortium, also known as (ISC)². The CISSP designation is a globally recognized, vendor-neutral standard for attesting to an IT security professional's technical skills and experience in implementing and managing a security program. The CISSP is a certification sought by IT professionals with job titles such as security auditor, security systems engineer, security architect and chief information security officer, among others.
The Certified Information Systems Security Professional material introduces participants to all eight domains of advanced security knowledge covered on the CISSP exam. Participants learn how to model threats, assess risks, plan business continuity, protect assets, and engineer strong security into complex systems. Participants also learn how to protect networks, communications, access, and identities; assess and test security, and manage security operations. Once complete, participants will have core skills for designing, implementing, and managing IT security for entire organizations.
At the conclusion of this program, students will be able to:
- Perform risk management and apply security governance
- Manage assets and protect data privacy
- Implement secure design principles, security models, and cryptography
- Test security from target identification through penetration testing
- Improve security throughout the software development lifecycle
- Implement and support firewalls and IDS/IPS
- Use best practices for managing vulnerability, patches, and malware
- Use Microsoft Office

- Get endorsed to become a CISSP: Once you complete the CISSP exam, you'll have to subscribe to the (ISC)2 Code of Ethics and complete an endorsement form to become a CISSP. The endorsement form must be signed by another (ISC)2 certified professional who verifies your professional work experience. You must submit the completed form within nine months of passing your exam to become fully certified, because passing the exam doesn't automatically grant you certification status.
