Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP) course is an independent information security certification governed by the not-for-profit International Information Systems Security Certification Consortium, (ISC)2.
CISSP certification course was the first credential in the field of information security, accredited by the ANSI (American National Standards Institute) to ISO (International Standards Organization) Standard 17024:2003. It is approved by the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) in both their Information Assurance Technical (IAT) and Managerial (IAM) categories. CISSP certified professionals are considered authorities on key security issues including mobile security, risk management, application development security, cloud computing, among others.
Earning the CISSP Certification proves you have what it takes to effectively design, implement and manage a best-in-class cybersecurity program. With a CISSP certification training, you validate your expertise and become an (ISC)² member, unlocking a broad array of exclusive resources, educational tools, and peer-to-peer networking opportunities. Prove your skills, advance your career, and gain the support of a community of cybersecurity leaders here to support you throughout your career.
A CISSP is a seasoned employee or consultant, usually with a title such as security manager, security analyst or chief information security officer, to name just a few. This person has been on the job for five or more years, and has thorough knowledge of the IT threat landscape, including emerging and advanced persistent threats, as well as controls and technology to minimize attack surfaces.
A CISSP also creates policies that set a framework for proper controls, and can perform or oversee risk management and software development security.
