CISSP® is a globally-recognized certification in the information security field from (ISC)2. Required by many governments and organizations around the world, this credential demonstrates deep technical knowledge and experience to effectively design, engineer, and manage the overall security posture of an organization.

Cecure Data’s Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP) Exam Preparation course will expose students to the eight domains of knowledge required to pass the exam:

  • Security and Risk Management

  • Asset Security

  • Security Engineering

  • Communications and Network Security

  • Identity and Access Management

  • Security Assessment and Training

  • Security Operations

  • Software Development Security

Our course has been prepared with great care to provide the most exhaustive survey of the CISSP information, test taking techniques, and preparation materials available in the industry. While other CISSP courses on the market require extensive reading and practice test preparation between finishing the class and taking the exam, our students have consistently found that the high quality of our course and its in-class practice test result in a minimum of extra time spent preparing for a successful pass of the exam.

In today’s hectic business conditions, time is of the essence!
