Overview

CISSP® Certified Information Systems Security Professional

CISSP Training | Face-to-Face or Live Virtual

This 5-day CISSP Certification Prep concentrated course provides information security professionals with a fully-immersed, minimum-distraction CISSP training and certification experience. The course covers the 8 domains of the CISSP Common Body of Knowledge as reorganised and updated in 2021. The course will broaden and deepen your understanding of the CISSP domains and give you full preparation for the ISC2 CISSP accreditation examination.

ALC’s CISSP courses are either 100% in-person or 100% live virtual.
That way you get the best training experience.

We do not offer hybrid CISSP training whereby some participants are physically in class while others are joining remotely. This invariably results in a lesser training experience. If the trainer focuses on the needs of one group, it is usually at the expense of the other. You can spare yourself the frustration of a hybrid experience with ALC’s fully-dedicated CISSP training.


NEW Delivery Format: Virtual Part Time

1-Day per week, over 5 weeks
ALC is now offering CISSP on a “Part Time” basis – you can now split the course up and attend 1 Day (9am – 5pm) per week across 5 Weeks.

Virtual Part Time – Evenings
ALC are now also offering CISSP delivered after hours (6pm – 9pm) 1 nights per week over an 12 week period.

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 ISC2 compiles and maintains through ongoing peer review by subject matter experts.

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.
