The Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP) certification is a globally recognized credential for information security professionals. To be eligible for the CISSP certification exam, candidates must meet certain requirements set forth by the International Information System Security Certification Consortium (ISC)².
The CISSP certification requirements include a minimum of five years of professional work experience in two or more of the eight CISSP domains. Additionally, candidates must adhere to the ISC² Code of Ethics and pass the CISSP certification exam.
The eight CISSP domains cover various aspects of information security, including security and risk management, asset security, security architecture and engineering, communication and network security, identity and access management, security assessment and testing, security operations, and software development security.
Candidates who do not have the required work experience can still qualify for the CISSP certification by completing an ISC²-approved educational program and receiving a four-year waiver for one year of the required work experience.
