This course breaks the huge CISSP® study books down into manageable chunks, and helped me focus and identify weaknesses. The instructor's knowledge and teaching skills are excellent.

SANS MGT414: SANS Training Program for CISSP® Certification is an accelerated review course that is specifically designed to prepare students to successfully pass the CISSP® exam.
MGT414 focuses solely on the 8 domains of knowledge as determined by (ISC)2 that form a critical part of CISSP® exam. Each domain of knowledge is dissected into its critical components, and those components are then discussed in terms of their relationship with one another and with other areas of information security.
After completing the course students will have:
- Detailed coverage of the 8 domains of knowledge
- The analytical skills required to pass the CISSP® exam
- The technical skills required to understand each question
- The foundational information needed to become a Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP®)
External Product Notice:
The CISSP® exam itself is not hosted by SANS. You will need to make separate arrangements to take the CISSP® exam. Please note as well that the GISP exam offered by GIAC is NOT the same as the CISSP® exam offered by (ISC)2.
Exam Format Change Notice:
Effective December 18, 2017 (ISC)2 changed (English Version-Only) the CISSP® exam to a Computerized Adaptive Testing (CAT) format. The new exam is 100-150 questions and time for completion is now three (3) hours. The computerized Adaptive Testing (CAT) CISSP® exam enables you to prove your knowledge by answering fewer questions and completing the exam in half the time of previous format.

The CISSP® certification has been around for nearly 25 years. The exam is designed to test your understanding of the Common Body of Knowledge, which may be thought of as the universal language of information security professionals. It is often said to be a mile wide and two inches deep. The CISSP® exam covers a lot of theoretical information that is critical for a security professional to understand. However, this material can be dry, and since most students do not see the direct applicability to their jobs, they find it boring. The goal of this course is to bring the 8 domains of knowledge of the CISSP® to life. The practical workings of this information can be discovered by explaining important topics with stories, examples, and case studies. I challenge you to attend the SANS CISSP® training course and find the exciting aspect of the 8 domains of knowledge!
