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.

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.

  • 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. The following video by (ISC)2 can help you understand if CISSP is right for you:
