Aimed at security professionals, this course surveys the entire information security landscape and the technologies involved. The course addresses the eight knowledge domains that comprise the common body of knowledge (CBK) for information systems security professionals and will help you prepare for CISSP certification.
The course offers a theory based approach to the security process, with opportunities to discuss the immediate application of concepts and techniques described in the CBK to the real world. It can be considered as providing a good introduction to security management, architecture and engineering.
This course is a ‘theory based’ guide through the eight International Information System Security Certification Consortium (ISC)² domains to support your learning of the (ISC)² Book of Knowledge. The course comprises of eight sessions that map directly to the (CBK), each one is theory based with instructor led discussions; there are no hands on labs.
- Module 1. Security and risk management
- Module 2. Asset security
- Module 3. Security engineering
- Module 4. Communication & network security
- Module 5. Identity & access management
- Module 6. Security assessment & testing
- Module 7. Security operations
- Module 8. Software security development
This course should be taken many months in advance of your CISSP exam booking. It will not substitute the considerable amount of self-study that all CISSP delegates need to undertake
CISSP and CBK are registered certification marks of (ISC)2, Inc.

- Question format – Multiple choice and advanced innovative questions
- Passing grade – A passing score is 700 out of 1000 points
Delegates should have experience in at least two of the domains in the (CBK), for 5 years or more (4 years if they have achieved relevant industry or degree level certifications) to achieve full certification. Associate status can be achieved without the full 4/5 years’ experience; full certification will be assigned when the correct amount of experience is obtained.
We recommend delegates have some knowledge of all CBK domains and are encouraged to read one or two of the books on the Reading List at ISC2.org.
On this course you will be provided with a CISSP guide book as pre-reading. It is expected that delegates review the guide and gain an appreciation of the key concepts in each of the eight CISSP domains in advance of the course. However, it is not expect delegates to be familiar with all the details of the guide book in advance of the course itself.
We recommend that work completed in the classroom is complemented by extra reading to ensure success in the exam. The amount of extra reading required will depend on the amount of experience the delegate has. The 'mile wide, inch deep' description indicates the challenge to most delegates, not all will have 'hands on' experience spanning all 8 domains of the CBK.
