What is the CISSP Certification?
The CISSP Certification is a qualification aimed at security professionals who want a broad knowledge of the latest cybersecurity and information system security services. Originally created by the Systems Security Certification Consortium (ISC), the CISSP Certification covers topics including disaster recovery planning, management practices, cryptography, networking security and is now considered the standardised knowledge of the field.
Requirements For CISSP Certification
If you are working full time as a paid security analyst, and have been for the last five years in at least two of the eight domains covered by CISSP, then you meet the requirements to get a CISSP Certification. College graduates and students may also be able to qualify for the CISSP Certification if their credentials are ISC approved. Finally, ICS associates can earn CISSP as they gain experience.
