What Will I Learn?
Understand the requirements to become a Certified Information System Security Professional
View Curriculum
  • The new Sybex CISSP book, 7th edition, but you can study with other books as well.

This is an introduction to all the details necessary to pass the Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP) exam including many study tips. We intend to teach the new 8 domains of security of the (ISC)2 Common Body of Knowledge (CBK) in 8 individual courses rather than one entire course so you only pay for the courses or sections you need to brush up or review on.

Since you only need 70% correct answers to pass we suggest you become proficient in at least 6 of the 8 domains to pass, rather than try to focus on on all the domains.

We recommend to use the Sybex CISSP book, 7th edition, but you can use other books as well.

Is for anyone pursuing a career in cybersecurity or currently employed in the field and gaining more experience.
