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.
The CISSP exam covers 8 domains in 2018 which are:
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.

You’ll then have six years to earn the work experience required, at which point you will receive your CISSP certification.

"Firebrand offers a very professional course, backed up by ISC² approved teachers. Our teacher gave a very clear course, supported by his anecdotes and experience.
We were lucky to have a small group which allowed us to go deeper into things and to exchange points of view.
The hotel in Helvoirt, despite the fact that the rooms are really small, is really well located.
In the middle of the woods, it helps you concentrate on your study without having too many distractions and without the city noise.
Food is really good too! ;o)"
