What is a CISSP?
The CISSP Certification is an abbreviation for Certified Information System Security Professional. It is an information systems security certification mirroring the qualification of these practitioners that is governed by the International Informations Systems Security Certification Consortium, also known as (ISC)². Currently, the certification covers 8 domains:
Security and Risk Management
Communications and Network Security
Identity and Access Management
Security Assessment and Testing
Software Development Security
Each year between 100 to 150 new questions are added to the question pool, these new questions are based on the new security technologies. All questions included in the test are multiple choice with four possible answers. The exam includes 250 questions, to pass the exam will require 70 - 80% marks. You will be given six hours to complete the exam although most complete it in about four. The questions will cover all of the 8 domains. All questions are designed to test the candidate's knowledge of information security facts, concepts and their application. The exam is made difficult by the vast amount of knowledge required to pass the exam as it is difficult to develop expertise in all 8 domains.
Are there any prerequisites to the exam
To qualify for the exam you will have to have a minimum of five years of full-time paid work experience, or four years plus an information security university degree in two or more of the 8 domains included in the CISSP exam.
After you become a certified CISSP, continuing education and practice is required to maintain and ensure that their certification is in good standing. The credential is only valid for three years. After the three years are over it must be renewed. This can be done by re-taking the exam, another way of renewing it and a more common way of doing so includes reporting in at least 120 Continuing Professional Education (CPE) credits.
History of CISSP
(ISC)2 was formed in 1989, this is now the largest non-profit organisation of cyber, information, software and infrastructure professionals in the world. The certifications were among the first of security credentials in the IT department to pass the tight requirements set by the ISO/IEC standards, a benchmark for certifying personnel. CISSP training was released in 1994 to Certify Information Security Professionals. The certification is updated every year to remain up to date and relevant to with new threats in the technological department. CISSP is now held at such a high regard that as of 2004 it was recognised by the US Department of Defense (DoD) as a certification requirement and has been adopted as a necessary requirement for the US National Security Agency’s ISSEP program.
