Certified Information Systems Security Professional Boot Camp


Certified Information Systems Security Professional Boot Camp

January 17, 2022 - January 21, 2022

Are you looking to pass the CISSP® exam the very first time? This CISSP® Boot Camp is an intensive five-day review of all eight domains of information security, including the latest common body of knowledge (CBK) information that is published by the (ISC)². Here are the eight domains:

  1. Security and Risk Management
  2. Asset Security
  3. Security Architecture and Engineering
  4. Communication and Network Security
  5. Identity and Access Management (IAM)
  6. Security Assessment and Testing
  7. Security Operations
  8. Software Development Security

The seminar will cover almost the full body of knowledge that a security professional should know after five years’ worth of experience. Please note that the content and material are intense. The five days are full days of lectures, although time will be made for questions and discussion. Due to the intense nature of the material, it is likely that there will be a ten-minute break every hour. Candidates will also be introduced to outside resources and contacts, such as the (ISC)² Community, the (ISC)² Vancouver Chapter, and the Vancouver Security Special Interest Group CISSP Study Group.

Candidates will also consider example exam questions, very similar in style and difficulty to what the candidates will encounter on the real exam, and discussions about types of questions and the ways to approach them so students understand both the concept and the approach of the question, as well as possible answers.

In addition, guidance on preparing for, and writing, the exam is given. Candidates will receive a comprehensive course package (in PDF format) with copies of all course slides as well as a useful reference and resource material, totaling well over 1,000 pages.

Who ought to take this course?

This course is for those with a broad knowledge of information security who plan to seek CISSP certification. (Note that full certification requires five years' worth of work experience in the field.) It is not intended to teach information security per se, rather it will review material you ought to already be familiar with to prepare you to write and pass the CISSP certification exam.

Why you ought to take this course?

The CISSP is considered the gold standard in information security certifications, proving to employers and clients the candidate's knowledge and commitment to professionalism. Even those not yet with the required experience to qualify for the full CISSP designation will benefit from passing the exam and earning the Associate of (ISC)² designation.

Participants will receive a Certificate of Completion upon completion of the course.
