The Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP) certification is the most recognized certification in the information security market today. A CISSP certification validates the deep technical as well as managerial knowledge & experience of information security professionals to effectively design, engineer, and manage the overall security posture of an organization. One of the best things about the CISSP Common Body of Knowledge (CBK) is that it remains relevant across all disciplines and industries in the field of information security. The CISSP certification was the first credential in the world of information security to meet the extremely stringent requirements of ANSI/ISO/IEC Standards 17024.

The CISSP certification fundamentally validates an individual’s expertise in eight main domains – Security & risk management, asset security, security architecture & engineering, communication & network security, identity and access management, security assessment and testing, security operations, and software development security. When you earn the CISSP certification, you also become an (ISC)2 member, which gives you access to a wide range of resources, tools, as well as networking opportunities. Today, the CISSP certification is pegged as the most required security certification on LinkedIn, with more than 142,000 professionals holding the CISSP credentials globally, spread over 170 countries.

The Certified Information Systems Security Professional certification is ideal for experienced security practitioners, managers, and executives interested in proving their knowledge across a wide array of security practices and principles. The CISSP training and certification by Cognixia would help you get an increased level of credibility and trustworthiness. It will help you sharpen your ability to manage and communicate better with different stakeholders. Cognixia’s live hands-on online CISSP training is delivered by experts and covers all the eight domains of the CISSP exam outline. This CISSP training will help you prepare thoroughly for the official CISSP examination and achieve your CISSP certification.

What you'll learn

This CISSP online training would cover the below eight domains listed per the CISSP CBK:
  • Security and risk management
  • Asset security
  • Security architecture and engineering
  • Communication and network security
  • Identity and access management
  • Security assessment and testing
  • Security operations
  • Software development security


To be eligible for the CISSP certification, candidates must have a minimum of five years of cumulative paid work experience in two or more of the eight domains of the CISSP CBK. Having a four-year college degree or a regional equivalent or additional credential from the (ISC)2 approved list would count as one year of the required experience. If a candidate does not have the required experience to become a CISSP, they can become an Associate of (ISC)2 by successfully passing the CISSP examination. They will then have six years to earn the five years of the required experience.

Cybersecurity is the process of protecting critical systems, networks, programs, sensitive information, etc. from digital attacks.
Information security is the process of preventing unauthorized access, use, disclosure, disruption, modification, inspection, sharing, recording, or destruction of physical or electronic information.
The process of protecting the information systems against unauthorized access, modification, and destruction in storage, processing, or transit as well as implementing the necessary measures to identify, document, and mitigate such threats is information systems security.
CISSP stands for Certified Information Systems Security Professional. CISSP is the world’s premier cybersecurity certification from (ISC)2. The CISSP certification validates an individual’s ability to effectively design, implement, and manage a best-in-class cybersecurity program.
Today, CISSP is the most-valued cybersecurity credential among employers, according to Cybersecurity Trends Spotlight. It is also the most demanded cybersecurity credential, according to LinkedIn. Per the (ISC)2 Cybersecurity Workforce Study, there is a global cyber workforce shortage of 2.9 million individuals. With such a huge demand, there couldn’t be a better time to get CISSP certified.
Yes, this CISSP training is 100% live online instructor-led.
Yes, however, you would need to appear for the official CISSP exam first. Once you clear the CISSP certification exam, you will earn the credentials of a CISSP and become an (ISC)2 member.
This CISSP online training covers the eight domains prescribed by the CISSP CBK: • Security and risk management • Asset security • Security architecture and engineering • Communication and network security • Identity and Access Management (IAM) • Security Assessment and Testing • Security Operations • Software Development Security
