The Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP) is the most globally recognized certification in the information security market. CISSP validates an information security professional’s deep technical and managerial knowledge and experience to effectively design, engineer, and manage the overall security posture of an organization. The broad spectrum of topics included in the CISSP Common Body of Knowledge (CBK) ensure its relevancy across all disciplines in the field of information security. Successful candidates are competent in the following 8 domains:
- Security and Risk Management
- Asset Security
- Security Architecture and Engineering
- Communication and Network Security
- Identity and Access Management (IAM)
- Security Assessment and Testing
- Security Operations
- Software Development Security
Here are just a few reasons to pursue the CISSP certification. You will:
- Catapult your career. As other CISSPs will tell you, this certification will raise your visibility and credibility, improve your job security, create new opportunities for you or even increase your salary — depending on your country and employer. On average, (ISC)² members report having 35 percent higher salaries than non-members. (Source: “2017 Global Information Security Workforce Study”)
- Challenge yourself to grow and be better. The CISSP exam is a rigorous test of your knowledge. But well beyond the exam, the CISSP is about reaching a deeper, better and broader understanding of the common body of knowledge for cybersecurity. It’s an exhilarating feeling to become a CISSP.
- Give yourself access to (and respect from) a global community of peers. Information security careers can feel isolating at times. With the CISSP, you earn membership in (ISC)² — a global community of thought leaders. You’ll meet experts who share your passion. You’ll be able to share ideas and find new ways to improve your craft. And you’ll open yourself up to connections around the world.
- Strengthen the skills you need to protect your organization. The CISSP focuses on the practical application of cybersecurity knowledge and tools. It explores actual, on-the-job issues and risks. And it gives you a systematic approach to cybersecurity. All of this means you’ll expand the skills and knowledge you need to fulfill your duty to your organization.
