Firebrand’s CISSP Boot Camp is an accelerated course that will prepare you to take the challenging CISSP exam. Accelerated training is fast, but this is not a crash course – you’ll learn from a real-world security expert and study everything you need to know to pass the exam.

You’ll study the eight CISSP CBK (Common Body of Knowledge) domains using the most up-to-date curriculum and revision materials.

Firebrand’s CISSP bootcamp is ideal for experienced security professionals, including managers, auditors and consultants – or anyone aiming to achieve CISO roles.

What is the CISSP CBK?

The CISSP Common Body of Knowledge (CBK) is an established information security framework covering security terminology, principles and a library of cyber security topics. It is sometimes referred to as the CISSP syllabus.

Created by (ISC)2, the CBK is used to assess a student’s level of security knowledge when preparing for and sitting the CISSP exam.

CISSPs are subject matter experts (SMEs) who work within two or more of these eight domains and possess advanced knowledge, skills, and experience gained through certification. 


What are the CISSP domains?

The CISSP exam covers 8 domains in 2018 which are:

  • Security and Risk Management
  • Asset Security
  • Security Engineering
  • Communications & Network Security
  • Identity & Access Management
  • Security Assessment & Testing
  • Security Operations
  • Software Development Security

What are the CISSP prerequisites?

To achieve this certification, you must have at least five years of cumulative, paid and full-time work experience in two or more of the eight CISSP CBK domains.

However, if you don’t meet these requirements, you can get a one-year experience waiver with:

  • A four-year college degree (or regional equivalent)
  • An approved credential from (ISC)2’s experience waiver list

You may also opt to take and sit the CISSP exam without the required experience. If you do pass the exam without the prerequisite experience, you will become an Associate of (ISC)2. You’ll then have six years to earn the work experience required, at which point you will receive your CISSP certification.


What does the CISSP exam cost in the UK?

The CISSP exam costs £560 in the UK.


How many hours is the CISSP exam?

The CISSP CAT exam duration is three hours. Exceptions can be provided to candidates with medical accommodations that are pre-approved by (ISC)2.

There is no minimum exam duration and students may proceed through the exam at their own pace.


What is the salary for a CISSP professional?

The average annual salary for professionals holding the CISSP certification is £60,000 – according to data from ITJobsWatch.

An endorsement form for this purpose must be completed and signed by an (ISC)2 certified professional who is an active member, and who can attest to your professional experience. You are required to become certified within nine months of the date of your exam.

If you do not become certified or an Associate of (ISC)2 within 9 months of the date of your exam, you will be required to retake the exam in order to become certified. It is possible for (ISC)2 to endorse you if you cannot find a certified individual to act as one.
