About the course
CISSP Certified Information Systems Security Professional
The QA CISSP course is not delivered as a boot camp or exam prep course. Our course is a ‘theory based’ guide through the eight ISC2 domains to support your learning of the ISC2 Book of Knowledge. This course should be taken many months in advance of your CISSP exam booking. It will not substitute the considerable amount of self-study that all CISSP delegates need to undertake. This course attracts mixed ability delegates and is always tailored to meet the needs of all participants.
For remote attendees dual monitor setup is required.
Aimed at security professionals, this course surveys the entire information security landscape and the technologies involved. The course addresses the eight knowledge domains that comprise the common body of knowledge (CBK) for information systems security professionals and will help delegates prepare for CISSP certification.
The course offers a theory based approach to the security process, with opportunities to discuss the immediate application of concepts and techniques described in the CBK to the real world. It can be considered as providing a good introduction to security management, architecture and engineering.
The course comprises of eight sessions that map directly to the (CBK), each one is theory based with instructor led discussions; there are no hands on labs.

Q. If I have been studying for the CISSP exam with material that focuses on the current domains, will I be sufficiently prepared to take the new exam without additional study?
A. (ISC)² exams are experience-based that include experience-based questions that cannot be learned by studying alone. If you already have the experience in the domains covered in CISSP and believe that you have sufficiently studied those domains, you should feel confident that you are qualified to take the new exam and pass it. (ISC)² cannot guarantee you will pass the exam.
