Who is this Course for?
Students who want to become Certified Information Systems Security Professionals.
Are there any Course Requirements or Prerequisites?
I designed this course to help students prepare for the current (2021-2024) version of the CISSP Exam. It does not replace the official CISSP publications, but it will help you get the best out of them.
CISSP 2021: What’s New?
This course describes the changes to the Certified Information Systems Security Professional Exam Outline. Now, CISSP has been around for quite some time and the previous version of the course syllabus was established in April 2018.
That was the version that I was taught, but in 2021 the Exam Outline changed significantly. In this course, I’m going to go through all of that material for you and show you what has changed, in detail, to help you with your revision.
