During this fast-paced, two-day session, the eight domains of the (ISC)² CISSP common body of knowledge (CBK®) will be covered. This fact-filled course will review the topics within the CBK and deepen the participant’s knowledge of information security. Each day of the presentation will cover essential topics within various domains of the CBK, such as current security challenges, problem resolution, application security, network security, infrastructure planning, legal considerations, international privacy, investigations, and forensics, among other topics.
The instructor will utilize (ISC)² course materials to guide you through the most pertinent information to understand prior to taking the examination or to help enhance your current CISSP credential. The two-day session will conclude with a practice exam. For those students interested in deepening their knowledge, enrollment in this course also includes access to the Official (ISC)² On-Demand Training Seminar.
Presentation: The facilitator will explain content to participants using PowerPoint to guide the presentation. Multiple examples will be used to clarify points.
Short Lecture/Discussion: The facilitator will engage participants in conversation by asking questions and encouraging them to respond. Participants will be encouraged to provide examples from their experience.
Computers: The course is presented to (ISC)2 standards and will not require the course participants to have laptops or computer devices during the class presentation.
After Completing This Course, the Participant Will Be Able To:
Understand and apply fundamental concepts and methods related to the fields of information technology and security.
Align overall organizational operational goals with security functions and implementations.
Understand how to protect assets of the organization as they go through their life-cycle.
Understand the concepts, principles, structures, and standards used to design, implement, monitor, and secure operating systems, equipment, networks, applications, and those controls used to enforce various levels of confidentiality, integrity, and availability.
Implement system security through the application of security design principals and the application of appropriate security control mitigations for vulnerabilities present in common information system types and architectures.
Understand the importance of cryptography and the security services it can provide in today’s digital and information age.
Understand the impact of physical security elements on information system security and apply secure design principals to evaluate or recommend appropriate physical security protections.
Understand the elements that comprise communication and network security coupled with a thorough description of how the communication and network systems function.
List the concepts and architecture that define the associated technology and implementation systems and protocols at Open Systems Interconnection (OSI) model layers 1–7.
Identify standard terms for applying physical and logical access controls to environments related to their security practice.
Appraise various access control models to meet business security requirements.
Name primary methods for designing and validating test and audit strategies that support business requirements.
Enhance and optimize an organization’s operational function and capacity by applying and utilizing appropriate security controls and countermeasures.
Recognize risks to an organization’s operational endeavors, and assess specific threats, vulnerabilities, and controls.
Understand the System Lifecycle (SLC) and the Software Development Lifecycle (SDLC) and how to apply security to it, and identify which security control(s) are appropriate for the development environment, and assess the effectiveness of software security.

Wrap-up Quiz and Discussion
The CISSP with Access to Self-Paces introduction is ideal for those working in positions such as, but not limited to:
Security systems engineer
Chief information security officer
Director of security
Participants should have demonstrated competency in security management on a large, enterprise-wide scale. They should possess skills in project management, risk management, creating and delivering a security awareness program, and managing a business continuity planning program. Also, participants should possess complete comprehension of information security. Participants should have knowledge of architecture and solving issues with chief security architects or analysts, or work as independent consultants (or in similar capacities), enhancing functionality between the C-suite and upper managerial levels as well as the implementation of a security program. The participant generally either consults on, develops, designs, or analyzes an organization’s overall security plan.
