Information security schools must assure that their enrollees get the best information security education possible. They must employ certified experts regarding the ISC2 Common Body of Knowledge. In addition, the materials and presentation used to render IS (Information Systems) education should be updated towards the ever-evolving scope of information security.
What will you learn from a CISSP training class? Apparently, it covers the ISC2 CBK Ten Domains, which encompasses Access Control, Telecom-Network Security, Management of Information Security, Application Security, Cryptography, Architectural Design of Security, Operations Security, Business Continuity, and Legal Compliance on Information Security, and Environmental Security.
In Access Control, you will learn the mechanisms for creating security architecture that will protect the information systems. However, Telecom-Network Security covers the security measures used to integrate, to authenticate and secure confidentiality of network transmissions over open and private communication ports. The management of IS entails the principles of developing, classifying, documenting, and implementing the policies and standards that govern the organization of information assets. On the other hand, the Cryptography domain tackles the principles and methodology involved in converting data into a secret code to ensure the confidentiality, and integrity of information.
The Security Architecture domain is all about the concepts, standards, and structures used to outline, distinguish, and secure the various levels of operating systems and other networking media. Likewise, Operations Security uses the concepts of auditing and monitoring to identify the subsequent access and security actions in hardware, and operators (where information is intended to be.) Business Continuity details the strategic plans used in recovering the business operations in the event of catastrophe. Legal Compliance on IS addresses the computer crime laws used to counteract computer crimes. Lastly, the Environmental Security domain entails the methodology to protect the entire facility (including information resources) from external access to internal perimeter.
