The Gold Standard

CISSP is long regarded as the gold standard of security qualifications. It 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. It is based on the CBK (Common Body of Knowledge) which comprises eight subject domains that the (ISC)2 compiles and maintains through ongoing peer review by subject matter experts.

To attain the CISSP certification candidates must have a minimum of 5 years of direct, full-time security professional work experience in 2 or more of the domains of the CISSP CBK. One year of work experience may be waived by (ISC)2 if the candidate holds a four-year or higher college or university degree or approved credential. Candidates who do not meet these criteria may be given Associate status until conditions are met.

Unsure if you have adequate experience?

If you are unsure whether you meet the requisite experience criteria, please refer to the (ISC)2 web site Professional Experience Requirement. Please note that (ISC)2 also offers the option to become an Associate of (ISC)2.

[su_trainers_box_top title=”Our trainers make the difference”]When you attend a training course there are actually two costs – the course fee, and the value of your time. You can see the fee. But whether you get value for your time and money depends totally on the quality of the course.

Lots of things go into making a great course, but the single most important is always the trainer: their knowledge of the subject, their real world experience that they can draw upon in the class, their ability to answer questions, their communication skills. This is what makes the difference.
