Updated and revised to reflect the latest developments in the field, the Guide provides a comprehensive overview of the CISSP CBK — a collection of topics relevant to information security professionals around the world — that serves as the basis for the CISSP (Certified Information Systems Security Professional)
The book includes a CD of sample exams that simulate the actual CISSP exam, providing the same number and types of questions with the same allotment of time allowed as with the actual exam. The CD can grade the exams, provide correct answers, and identify areas where more study is needed.
“This book is an invaluable tool for professionals seeking to achieve the CISSP certification, providing current, reliable and thorough information,”
The CISSP CBK was established by (ISC)2 to create a common framework of information security terms and principles that allows information security professionals worldwide to discuss, debate and resolve matters pertaining to the profession. It also serves as the basis for (ISC)2’s education programs.
The Guide contains these 10 CISSP CBK domains, which reflect evolving terminology and changing emphasis in the security professional’
• Information security and risk management
• Access control
• Physical (environmental)
• Security architecture and design
• Business continuity (BCP) and disaster recovery planning (DRP)
• Telecommunications and network security
• Application security
• Operations security
• Legal, regulations, investigations, and compliance
“Because few practitioners have significant work experience in all 10 domains, (ISC)2 highly recommends reading this Guide, taking the sample exams included on the CD, reading at least one other CISSP exam study book, and attending an Official (ISC)² Review Seminar (http://www.isc2.org/
The Guide is available online from the (ISC)2 Store (http://www.isc2education.org/
