5-Day CISSP Exam Preparation Boot Camp

5 days

The CISSP certification is relevant for middle to senior level Managers, and network engineers, security planners, administrators, and practitioners in the security field, seeking a higher understanding regarding the theory and models of information security and the relationship to effective, practical security implementations.


This intensive 5-day course provides students with an understanding of the 8 domains of security represented by the ISC2 CISSP Common Body of Knowledge regarding Information, Infrastructure, and Physical security.

These 8 domains represent a vendor neutral overview of the Information Technology spectrum related to security management practices. Through a series of lectures, discussions and practice quizzes, the student will gain knowledge of these concepts and gain an understanding of the areas of study required prior to taking the CISSP exam.
