In Detail

Prepare for the 2018 version of the Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP) Certification Exam, which is what you will be tested on until the next CISSP curriculum update in 2021. You obviously need to have the knowledge for the CISSP certification exam, but it is much more than that. The CISSP exam is very much an English exam. You need to be able to spot the keywords (PKI, policy, asymmetric, BCP) as well as the indicators (first, best, last, least, most).

Remember the new version of the CISSP exam is being used, you will test on the CAT format, 3 hours 100-150 questions (as of December 18th, 2017). You need to answer the questions from (ISC)²'s point of view, in their perfect world. 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 exam do so because they answer from a point of being reactive, not being proactive.
