If you plan to build a career in information security CISSP is the gold standard certification to attain.
- The course can run in two formats, the standard public event or as a boot camp. The boot camp allows the customer to specify longer working hours which allows a deeper and more detailed discussion of the technologies involved.
- A public event would typically run 9.30 till 5 pm.
- Boot camps can run 9 am to 5.30 pm or 9 am to 8 pm, depending on your preference.
- A boot camp also traditionally finishes with a test prep exam, which takes place after lunch on the last day. This allows the delegates to approach the topics covered in a question and answer format, and then discuss their answers with the trainer and class.
Candidates must have a minimum of five years of work experience in two or more of the eight domains indicated in the CISSP Common Body of Knowledge® (CBK).
- Security and Risk Management
- Asset Security
