CISSP domainsI recently passed the CISSP exam and am waiting for the review board to approve my experience; then I will be awarded a certificate.

The Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP) is an information security certification that was developed by the International InformationSystems Security Certification Consortium, also known as (ISC)².

The CISSP curriculum covers subject matter in a variety of Information Security topics.  The CISSP examination is based on what (ISC)² terms the Common Body of Knowledge (or CBK). According to (ISC)², “the CISSP CBK is a taxonomy – a collection of topics relevant to information security professionals around the world. The CISSP CBK establishes a common framework of information security terms and principles that allow information security professionals worldwide to discuss, debate and resolve matters pertaining to the profession with a common understanding.”

From 2015, the CISSP curriculum is divided into eight domains:

  • Security and Risk Management
