Special Notices

The Nexus 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.

Overview

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.

Examinations:

For more information on the changes that will be made to the CISSP exam on April 15, 2018, please refer to the FAQs and Exam Outline.

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. ISC² 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. ISC² cannot guarantee you will pass the exam.

CISSP and CBK are registered certification marks of ISC2, Inc.

Prerequisites

Delegates should have experience in at least two of the domains in the CBK, for 5 years or more 4 years if they have achieved relevant industry or degree level certifications to achieve full certification. Associate status can be achieved without the full 4/5 years experience; full certification will be assigned when the correct amount of experience is obtained.

We recommend that work completed in the classroom is complemented by extra reading to ensure success in the exam. The amount of extra reading required will depend on the amount of experience the delegate has. The 'mile wide, inch deep' description indicates the challenge to most delegates, not all will have 'hands on' experience spanning all 8 domains of the CBK.
