The Scope of the CISSP Review Seminar for CBK

The ISC2 (the body that manages the CISSP certifications) introduced the CISSP Common Body of Knowledge (CBK) Review Seminar to prepare the student for the CISSP exam. The CISSP CBK Review Seminar is a comprehensive tool to gauge students on determining the ambiguous concepts under the CBK Domains. CISSP CBK Review seminars are held globally to ensure an in-depth review, and an avenue for all Information Security professionals to stay updated of the evolving aspects of information security (IS).

Normally, the CBK review seminar is held within a 5-day calendar schedule from Monday to Friday (with the regular duration of five to eight hours daily.) The workshop provides modular instructions about the Ten CBK Domains such as Principles on Security Management, Security Architectural Design, Access Control, Application Security, Operations Security, Environmental Security, Cryptography, Legal and Ethical Scope of IS, Telecom Network Security, and Business Continuity Planning. The material and presentation of the CBK Domains are updated regularly to demonstrate the latest information about security scope, and countermeasures. At the end of the seminar, students shall have a self-assessment test as course evaluation.

The CISSP CBK Review seminar focuses on three concentrations such as CISSP-ISSAP (or the principles of IS Architecture), CISSP-ISSEP (or the principles of IS Engineering), and CISSP-ISSMP (or the principles of IS Management). These three concentrations substantiate the ten domains to accentuate the principles of information security.
