CISSP Certification

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) certification is recognised in Singapore and internationally in the information security market. CISSP online training helps to confirm an information security professional’s managerial and technical knowledge and experience to constructively engineer, design, and manage the overall security posture of an organisation. The CISSP Common Body of Knowledge (CBK) offers a wide range of topics that ensures its applicability across all disciplines in the information security field.
