New CBT Nuggets Course: (ISC)2 CISSP 2018

CISSP

CBT Nuggets trainers Keith Barker and Ben Finkel recently released their new (ISC)2 CISSP 2018 course, which covers tasks, duties, and responsibilities needed to effectively design, engineer, and manage the overall security posture of an organization

This course addresses the eight security domains on the certification exam:

  • Security and risk management
  • Asset security
  • Security architecture and engineering
  • Communication and network security
  • Identity and access management
  • Security assessment and testing
  • Security operations
  • Software development security

Keith teaches the first seven domains, and Ben draws from his software development background to cover the final domain material.

About the (ISC)2 exam

While there are no prerequisites to take the CISSP exam, though test takers must document five years of relevant work experience to obtain the certification.  A four-year college degree or equivalent can reduce the requirement by 1 year. See the ISC(2) website for full details. Additionally, CISSP applicants must either be endorsed by an (ISC)2 sponsor or submit an application for endorsement by (ISC)2.

The exam also meets the requirement for DODD 8750 and/or DODD 8140 baseline certifications for IAT Level III, and IAM Level II and III.

This course includes:

  • 9 hours of training
  • 95 videos
  • In-video quizzes
