There are currently no formal prerequisites to attend the SSCP course. Though it is recommended that students have some knowledge of other IT domains, including a basic working knowledge of network technologies. The CompTIA Security+ certification, while not required, would also be beneficial.

In order to attain the SSCP certification, delegates require a minimum of one year’s cumulative paid full-time work experience in one or more of the seven domains covered in the SSCP CBK. Valid experience includes information systems security-related work performed, or work that requires information security knowledge and involves direct application of that knowledge.

If you do not have the required experience, you may still sit for the exam and become an Associate of (ISC)2 until you have gained the required experience.
