Students pursuing CISSP training want to establish themselves as credible computer security professionals through a study of all 10 CISSP Common Body of Knowledge domains. Validating this knowledge is the goal of certification; therefore, students attending this training should also meet the requirements needed to sit for the CISSP certification exam. These include four years of direct professional work experience in one or more fields related to 10 CBK security domains, or a college degree and three years of experience. Check with (ISC)2 for the most up-to-date requirements. New certifications have emerged and will continue to emerge from (ISC)2, which may cause changes to base requirements.
Students should have certifications in A+, Network+, or Security+, or possess equivalent professional experience. Students may have one or more of the following certifications or equivalent experience: MCSE, SCNP, CCNP, RHCE, LCE, CNE, SSCP, SANS, or GIAC.
