Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP) Online Course

About the course

The Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP) certification is the most valuable IT security certification that will help you to reach greater heights in the IT security and cybersecurity field. This is a complete course that will help you to build a solid foundation for the certification exam. The course starts by illustrating the reasons why CISSP certification is important in IT security.

Next, you will get an overview of the eight domains that make up the CISSP Common Body Knowledge (CBK). Moving ahead, you will dive deep into the security and risk management domain of CISSP and then we will take you through all the eight domains one by one.
