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 ISC2, 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.

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 ISC2. You’ll then have six years to earn the work experience required, at which point you will receive your CISSP certification.

AK, DMT-ET. (8/1/2024 (Monday) to 13/1/2024 (Saturday))

"Understandable and clear. The trainer took the time to clarify and adapt to his audience."
Julien Grellier. (8/1/2024 (Monday) to 13/1/2024 (Saturday))

"CISSP is about learning to understand a situation from both business and tech, then being able to reason for the best solution in a given situation, which does not compromise business continuity or technical performance / security. Our trainer does a great job at teaching us how to think / reason about a problem, and that's the tough part for a technical person getting into management and decision-making. Clear English and a good voice is important for teaching people with different primary languages, and our instructor articulates very well. Thank you for a great experience,"
Alan Kristensen, Cyber Partners ApS. (8/1/2024 (Monday) to 13/1/2024 (Saturday))

"Everything is organized to let you learn in the best condition organization, accommodation, food etc... and let you ready to take the exam. Furthermore, the trainer was really good: experienced, good pedagogue with a lot of humor. The rate of people who passed successfully the exam just after the course or couple weeks after is very high. It's the best training course I ever had ! I absolutely recommend Firebrand Training."
Fabien Fleouter. (11/12/2023 (Monday) to 16/12/2023 (Saturday))
