COURSE OVERVIEW

This certification is for the next generation of information security leaders.

It allows you to show off deep technical and managerial competence. You’ll require advanced security skills, experience, and credibility to take this exam. You’ll show your ability in design, engineering, implementation and knowledge in the management of an overall information security program to protect organisations from growing sophisticated attacks.

Not only is the CISSP an objective measure of excellence, but also a globally recognised standard of achievement. The CISSP is put together using an up to date, global common body of knowledge that ensures the security leaders it produces have a deep knowledge and understanding of new threats, technologies, regulations, standards, and practices.

If you don’t have the experience to earn your certification, you don’t have to worry, as with the SSCP, you can still earn your experience to become a CISSP as an associate of (ISC)² by successfully passing the CISSP exam.
