Lesson 1
CISSP candidates must have a have a thorough understanding of cybersecurity fundamentals, the relationship between information security and business objectives, and the importance of risk management. Lesson 1, Security and Risk Management is divided into two parts. Part 1 explores a broad spectrum of security and privacy concepts, governance principles, global legal and regulatory environments, personnel security requirements, and third-party due diligence and oversight. Part 2 explores an array of risk management topics including threat modeling, quantitative and qualitative risk assessment methodologies, selecting controls and countermeasures, and business continuity.

Lesson 2
CISSP candidates are expected to be well versed in information asset ownership, classification, management and protection. Lesson 2, Asset Security focuses on the classifying, managing and securing information assets and supporting infrastructure throughout its lifecycle with an emphasis on privacy protection.

Lesson 3
CISSP candidates are required to understand conceptual security engineering models, information technology design components, vulnerability mitigation techniques, cryptographic systems and physical security concepts. The Security Engineering domain is the second largest in terms of number of covered topics. Lesson 3, Security Engineering is divided into two parts. Part 1 focuses on design principles and models, systems architecture, and assessing and mitigating vulnerabilities. Part 2 concentrates on cryptographic systems, techniques, and protocols including encryption, hashing, digital signature and the Public Key Infrastructure. Also included in Part 2 is secure site and facility design principles and practical application.

Lesson 4
CISSP candidates are expected to demonstrate a thorough understanding of networking topologies, protocols, convergence, and network attack vectors necessary to design and implement secure communication channels. Lesson 4, Communication and Network Security addresses OSI and TCP/IP models, IP convergence and extensibility, multimedia security, virtual private networks, end point protection and network attack method. The lesson concludes with examining a unified attack prevention and mitigation approach.

Lesson 5
CISSP candidates will be tested on authentication, authorization and access control systems, design and management. Lesson 5, Identity and Access Management begins with a review of access control fundamentals. Subsequent topics include local and cloud-based identity management, authentication factors and processes, access control models, access and authorization criteria, techniques and technologies, user lifecycle provisioning, and access control attack mitigation.

Lesson 6
CISSP candidates must be able to successfully design and manage internal and third-party security assessment and testing as well as analyze and report on test output. Lesson 5, Security Assessment and Testing explores testing and examination objectives, techniques, targets, results and recommendations. The lesson also incorporates three complementary topics -information security continuous monitoring (ICSM), audit fundamentals and regulatory examinations.

Lesson 7
CISSP candidates will be tested on the practical application of information security concepts, best practices, and industry standards related to the security operations of enterprise computing systems. According to the Candidate Information Bulleting, the Security Operations domain is the largest in terms of individual topics on the CISSP examination. Lesson 7, Security Operations is divided into two parts. Part 1 focuses on the daily and ongoing operational tasks of custodians and security operations personnel including managing privileged accounts, managing border controls, conducting monitoring, logging and DLP activities, implementing and supporting vulnerability, patch, malware and media management, and participating in the configuration management process. Part 2, focuses on incident management and business continuity including resiliency, fault tolerance, disaster recovery planning and plan maintenance, incident preparation, detection and response, forensic investigation, and business continuity strategies.

Lesson 8
CISSP candidates are expected to be familiar with the software development lifecycle and to be able to assess and enforce security controls related to both software development and software implementation. Lesson 8, Software Development Security explores the traditional software development lifecycle, the emerging security development lifecycle, development tools, techniques and tests, database security and privacy, and the impact of acquired software. The lesson concludes with a secure software acquisition and implementation walkthrough.

Lesson 9
Lesson 9 is designed to be both a review and a study roadmap. Each sub-lesson includes exam categories, topic and cross-references. You can use Lesson 9 to design a study roadmap or to review your knowledge. In the very last lesson‚Äì9.9‚Äìyou’ll find information on exam preparation, format, logistics, and what to do on test day!
