  • Information Security and Risk Management – helps identify the information assets and studies the development, documentation, and implementation of policies, standards, procedures, and guidelines. Several management tools like data classification, risk assessment and analysis are also described to identify threats, classify assets and rate the vulnerabilities.
  • Cryptography – deals with methods of disguising information that ensures the integrity, confidentiality, and authenticity of information.
  • Physical (Environmental) Security – ensures protection, starting from the outside perimeter into the inside office space, of the information system resources.
  • Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery Planning – focuses on the preservation and recovery of business operations in the event of an outage.
  • Telecommunications and Networking Security – addresses the transmission methods, transport formats, and security measures of voice and data communications.
  • Application Development Security – concentrates on the important security concepts that apply to application software development.
  • Operations Security – identifies important security events that can be audited, monitored, and executed to eliminate exploitation of critical information.
  • Legal, Regulations, Compliance and Investigations – addresses computer crime laws and regulations.
