Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP) is an independent information security certification granted by the International Information System Security Certification Consortium, also known as (ISC)².
The CISSP is an objective measure of excellence. It’s the most globally recognized standard of achievement in the industry. And this cybersecurity certification was the first information security credential to meet the strict conditions of ISO/IEC Standard 17024.
The CISSP exam has 8 Domains, that make up the CISSP CBK (Common Bodies of Knowledge):
This does not mean 10% of the questions on the CISSP exam are from Domain 8, this means 10% of the weighted questions are from Domain 8.
At the end of the CISSP certification practice exam you can see the total percentage score and a weighted percent score for each of the 8 CISSP domains. You can review each question and sort by CISSP knowledge area, correct answers, wrong answers, skipped questions and questions marked for review.
To pass the CISSP certification exam you need the knowledge to pass (obviously), but that is not enough.
Understand and answer every question from a Manager or a Risk Advisers point of view, NOT from an executive or as a techie. Most hands-on techies that fail the CISSP certification exam do so because they answer from a point of acting, not being proactive.
Spot the keywords (non-repudiation, public key,) and the indicators (Not, Most, First).
You have 3 hours to answer the 100-150 questions.
Eliminate wrong answers: If they ask about encryption and the answer are DES, AES, Sprinkler systems, the OSI model, you can safely eliminate Sprinkler and OSI, you are now at a 70% chance of a right answer.
Remember on the real CISSP exam, you can’t mark questions for review.
Passing this certification exam has never been easier, but with use of our preparation material, it is simple and easy. You have lifetime access to this course once purchased.
