CISSP Certification Examination Preparation
If you have experience or have previously completed a CISSP course, taking these certification exam prep sessions may be just what you need. For those of you who completed the review of Domains 1 through 8, this is the logical next step, exam preparation. We start with providing the exam mindset that is so important to successfully prepare for the exam. You will be exposed to the exam format and will learn to spot keywords, to select the “most” right answer, and to budget your time. We’ll run through practice tests and review the questions and answers.
Next, you take a deep dive with full practice tests and many more practice questions and answers. Selecting the best answer from several correct answers will continue to be challenging but will become manageable with our review. The more you do, the more comfortable you will feel when you see the actual questions when you take your certification exam.
We will provide CISSP exam tips and tricks which will help you through the long exam. You will have a last review and more practice tests. You’ll leave with suggestions for continued study before your exam. Once you pass your exam, you will need to complete the endorsement process and we will explain this along with exam experience requirements and the need for recertification through earning CPEs.
CISSP Domains 4 - 8
The second course in the series starts with Communication and Network Security from CBK Domain 4. Topics include but are not limited to secure network architecture design (e.g. IP and non-IP protocols, segmentation), secure network components, secure communication channels, and network attacks.
CISSP Identity and Access Management from CBK Domain 5, Security Assessment and Testing from CBK Domain 6, and Software Development Security from CBK Domain 8 are the primary areas for this session. Topics from Domain 5 include physical and logical assets control, identification and authentication of people and devices, identity as a service, third-party identity services, access control attacks, and identity and access provisioning lifecycle. Topics from Domain 6 include assessment and test strategies, security process data, security control testing, test outputs, and security architectures vulnerabilities. Domain 6 topics include security in the software development lifecycle, development environment security controls, software security effectiveness, and acquired software security impact.
As with the other courses, we leave time for your questions and provide hands-on opportunities for exploring topics. You’ll see the value of collaborating with your fellow participants.
CISSP Security Operations from CBK Domain 7 is the last domain to be covered. Topics include investigations support and requirements, logging and monitoring activities, provisioning of resources, foundational security operations concepts, resource protection techniques, incident management, preventative measures, patch, and vulnerability management, change management processes, recovery strategies, disaster recovery processes and plans, business continuity planning and exercises, physical security, and personnel safety concerns.
You’ll see that our instructor approaches topics in the context of real-world activities. As with the other courses, we leave time for your questions and provide hands-on opportunities for exploring topics.At this point and probably sooner, you’re appreciating what people say about the CISSP: It’s a mile wide and an inch deep.
CompTIA Cybersecurity Analyst (CySA+)
CompTIA CySA+ is for IT professionals looking to gain the following security analyst skills:
• Perform data analysis and interpret the results to identify vulnerabilities, threats and risks to an organization
• Configure and use threat-detection tools
• Secure and protect applications and systems within an organization
Training maps with the CompTIA CySA+ certification objectives for exam CSO-001 in the areas of:
• Threat management
• Vulnerability management
• Cyber-incident response
• Security architecture and tool sets
CompTIA describes CySA+ as “the only intermediate high-stakes cybersecurity analyst certification with performance-based questions covering security analytics, intrusion detection and response. “
In a hands-on and collaborative manner, you will gain the skills needed for positions such as IT security, vulnerability, threat intelligence, and cybersecurity analyst.
The CompTIA CySA+ certification meets the ISO 17024 standard and is approved by U.S. Department of Defense to fulfill Directive 8570.01-M requirements. It is compliant with government regulations under the Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA).
CompTIA® Security+ is a good first course for people wanting to begin their cybersecurity career. It establishes the core knowledge required of any cybersecurity role and provides a springboard to intermediate-level cybersecurity jobs. Security+ incorporates best practices in hands-on trouble-shooting to ensure security professionals have practical security problem-solving skills. Cybersecurity professionals with Security+ know how to address security incidents - not just identify them.
Human error along with spyware, malware, e-mail attacks, viruses, worms, and wireless technology are reasons for security training and certification. This Security+ course is taught with a practical approach to prepare you for the certification exam and for skills required on the job. You will apply general security concepts to real world scenarios. Competencies exactly match the CompTIA® certification exam areas:
- Network Security
- Compliance and operational security
- Threats and vulnerabilities
- Application, data, and host security
- Access control and identity management
Both the Security+ certification exam and a study guide are included. Security+ is compliant with ISA 17024 standards and approved by the US DoD to meet directive 8140/8570.01-M requirements.
