The Certified Information Systems Security Professional Course At Ashford Global IT

As organizations become more and more dependent on IT infrastructures, there is a rising demand for security professionals in the IT realm. Organizations need to know that their data is safe and secure from threats. If you are an IT professional looking to advance in your career, then you need to become a Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP). The CISSP Certificate is one of the most prestigious, globally-recognized Information Security certificates.

To become a CISSP, you must possess a minimum of five years of full-time work experience in two or more of the ten (ISC)2 CISSP CBK domains, listed below; however, if you have a four-year college degree, a Master’s degree in Information Security, or one of a number of other certifications, one year may be waived. Candidates must confirm that their assertions regarding their experience are true. In addition, candidates must accept the CISSP Code of Ethics, answer four questions regarding their criminal history and background, and have their qualifications endorsed by another (ISC)2 certified professional in good standing. Candidates must also pass the CISSP exam with a scaled score of 700 points or greater. The CISSP exam contains 250 multiple choice questions that must be answered over a period of 6 hours.

The CISSP exam verifies that a candidate fully comprehends the 10 Common Body of Knowledge (CBK) domains:

  • Access Control
  • Information Security and Risk Management
  • Cryptography
  • Physical (Environmental) Security
  • Security Architecture and Design
  • Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery Planning
  • Telecommunications and Networking Security
  • Application Development Security
  • Operations Security
  • Legal, Regulations, Compliance and Investigations

To prepare for the CISSP exam, enroll in a CISSP training course at Ashford Global IT. This course explores the essential elements of Information Security as well as the 10 CBK domains listed above.  At Ashford Global IT, students can choose to enroll in a traditional classroom course or in virtual instructor-led training. In either method, students will participate in lectures, discussions, and practical team and individual activities. In addition, students will receive the complete set of printed lecture slide notes, 1500 practice questions, and a newly-revised study guide written by Ashford Global IT’s primary CISSP instructor James Michael Stewart. In short, the CISSP training course at Ashford Global IT fully prepares students to pass the CISSP exam.

However, if an Ashford Global IT student does not successfully complete the CISSP Certification exam on his or her first attempt, the student may take advantage of Ashford Global IT’s Success Guarantee. This Guarantee permits the student to re-attend an open-enrollment course at no cost for his or her second attempt at the CISSP exam. The only catch is that the candidate will need to use the same course material from the original class.
