Course Number

Access to a company's resources through unauthorized means is the number one goal of most attackers. The security professional must understand the proper countermeasures in order to stop attacks on e-mail systems, over the network, and on the PBX. This course discusses the transport mechanisms, structures, and security measures used to ensure availability, confidentiality, integrity, and authentication over both public and private networks. This course guides you through the Common Body of Knowledge (CBK) recommended by the International Information Systems Security Certification Consortium (ISC2) for its Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP) certification. The CISSP credential certifies student expertise in ten different knowledge domains and covers the most recent key areas of knowledge as outlined in the Candidate Information Bulletin (CIB) effective date: January 1, 2012.

Target Audience
The CISSP credential is ideal for mid- and senior-level managers who are working toward or have already attained positions as CISOs, CSOs, or Senior Security Engineers.
