Information Systems Security Engineering Professional

Recognition for Advanced Expertise in Information Security Engineering

This concentration was developed in conjunction with the U.S. National Security Agency (NSA) providing an invaluable tool for any systems security engineering professional. CISSP-ISSEP is the guide for incorporating security into projects, applications, business processes, and all information systems. Security professionals are hungry for workable methodologies and best practices that can be used to integrate security into all facets of business operations. The SSE model taught in the IATF portion of the course is a guiding light in the field of information security and the incorporation of security into all information systems.

 The CISSP-ISSEP is ideal for:

  • Senior Security Analyst
  • Senior Systems Engineer
  • IA Systems Engineer
  • Information Assurance Analyst
  • Information Assurance Officer

To qualify for the CISSP–ISSEP, you must maintain your CISSP credential in good standing and pass the ISSEP examination. 

The four domains of the CISSP-ISSEP CBK® are:  

  • Systems Security Engineering
  • Certification and Accreditation (C&A) / Risk Management Framework (RMF)
  • Technical Management
  • U.S. Government Information Assurance Related Policies and Issuances

This course prepares students to pass the ISSEP Exam from ISC2. 

An ISSEP is expected to have a broad range of skills across the four different domains of security known as the CBK®. Our 4-day ISSEP bootcamp provides students with a proven method for mastering all 4 domains.

Our bootcamp focuses on preparing students through a combination of lecture, review of the entire 4 domains, drill sessions, extensive mentoring, practice questions and answer sessions all topped off with a full practice exam. Our instructors don't just teach from a textbook, they design, write and update our curriculum. Our instructors are constantly updating our curriculum to match any change that may arise. Our bootcamp will provide the right amount of training needed for you to Test with Confidence.
