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. 

What are the CISSP domains?

The CISSP exam covers 8 domains:

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

What is the CISSP certification cost?

The CISSP exam costs £560 in the UK.

How many hours is the CISSP exam?

The CISSP CAT exam duration is four hours. Exceptions can be provided to candidates with medical accommodations that are pre-approved by ISC2.

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 more than £70,000 – according to data from ITJobsWatch.

After passing your exam

Once you have successfully passed your certification exam, you'll receive your certificate and ID card. Upon receiving notification of your exam success, you will be required to subscribe to the ISC2 Code of Ethics and have your application endorsed before the credential can be awarded.

An endorsement form for this purpose must be completed and signed by an ISC2 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 ISC2 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 ISC2 to endorse you if you cannot find a certified individual to act as one.

Maintenance Requirements

The CISSP certification has annual and three-year CPE requirements. To maintain your certification you must:

  • Gain a minimum of 120 Continuing Professional Education (CPE) credits every three years (suggested 40 CPE credits per year)
  • Pay the annual maintenance fee (AMF) of USD $85 each year of your three-year certification cycle
  • Fully support and abide by the ISC2 Code of Ethics

"The Firebrand Training experience was fantastic from start to finish. Excellent facilities, knowledgeable and engaging instructors, and great customer service throughout. I would thoroughly recommend."
Wesley Parsons. (8/4/2024 (Monday) to 13/4/2024 (Saturday))

"The course was excellent and well presented. Having an instructor for such a detailed and broad course was a tremendous help when preparing to sit the exam. Having passed the exam, I can happily say I don’t think I could have accomplished all I learnt within a week without Firebrand’s course."
Robert Fothergill. (8/4/2024 (Monday) to 13/4/2024 (Saturday))

"With my personal experience I absolutely recommended learners to sign up with Firebrand. I felt confident for the exam after attending the course. Comparing my experience solving practise test and exam before and after attending the course, it went up from south to north."
Ashish Nair. (8/4/2024 (Monday) to 13/4/2024 (Saturday))

"I had a great time attending the CISSP course because it gave me what I needed. A high level understanding of the material and valuable advice about how to prepare and tackle the exam. The course itself is challenging on its own but when you are with a group of like minded people it makes it fun to learn. For anyone considering taking the CISSP or using firebrand for your training, it’s a no-brainer."
Rushan Ratha. (8/4/2024 (Monday) to 13/4/2024 (Saturday))

"A very intense course & a huge amount to cover in the relatively short 5-day window, but the course tutor pushes through the substantial content at a steady place & ensures the essential subject elements, plus question answering techniques, were pulled out for us to focus on for the exam."
I.B., IK Tech Limited. (8/4/2024 (Monday) to 13/4/2024 (Saturday))
