Certified Information Security Systems Professional (CISSP)

Course Overview

Led by (ISC)² authorized instructors, who are experts in information security. New Horizons CISSP Training is the most comprehensive review of information security concepts and industry best practices, and covers the 10 domains of the CISSP CBK (Common Body of Knowledge). This training course will help candidates review and refresh their information security knowledge and help identify areas they need to study for the CISSP exam. 


Several types of activities are used throughout the course to reinforce topics and increase knowledge retention. These activities include open ended questions from the instructor to the students, matching and poll questions, group activities, open/closed questions, and group discussions. This interactive learning technique is based on sound adult learning theories.  

Who Should Attend

The course is intended for students who have at least four years of recent full-time security professional work experience in two or more of the ten domains of the (ISC)² Certified  

Information System Security Professional (CISSP) Common Body of Knowledge  

(CBK), including experience with the architecture, design, management, risk, and controls that assure the security of business environments? The course builds on and brings together the holistic view of the topics covered in the everyday environment of an information systems security professional. Professional experience including the following will greatly enhance the learning environment.
