SF – Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP)
 /  SF – Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP)

The CISSP (Certified Information Systems Security Professional) certification was developed to meet the current demands and growing needs of the computer industry.

This training course provides students with comprehensive, up-to-date knowledge that adheres to the (ISC)2 (International Information System Security Certification Consortium, Inc.) certification requirements – considered to be the gold-standard for security professionals.

This certification is essential for a career involving security tasks, and prepares you with the skills needed to protect your organisation from sophisticated cyber-attacks.

Students gain a solid background on security concerns, communications, infrastructure, basic cryptography and operations, as well as the hands-on experience needed to design, implement and manage a security program.

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.
