CISSP-ISSEP Training Course Outline

Concentration In Security Engineering

The Official (ISC)² CISSP-ISSEP course is designed for CISSPs who specialized in the practical application of systems engineering principles and processes to develop secure systems. Drawing from the comprehensive Information Systems Security Engineering Professional (ISSEP) Common Body of Knowledge (CBK®), the course provides a deep understanding of the broad spectrum of topics included in the CBK and addresses new threats, technologies, regulations, standards and practices. The self-paced training covers the following five domains of the CISSP-ISSEP CBK:

  • Domain 1: Systems Security Engineering Foundations
  • Domain 2: Risk Management
  • Domain 3: Security Planning and Design
  • Domain 4: Systems Implementation, Verification and Validation
  • Domain 5: Secure Operations, Change Management and Disposal
