Effective April 15, 2018, the CISSP exam will be based on a new exam outline. The domains and their weights have changed. Please refer to the CISSP Exam Outline for details.
CISSP is an advanced security certification, as evidenced by its requirement of 5 years of full time experience in a security-related position. Anyone seeking to enhance their current skillset in the security and provide evidence of competency in many areas of security should seek the CISSP certification.
If you do not have the amount of experience needed in order to attain your CISSP certification you can still attend training and pass the exam in order to qualify as an Associate of ISC2. While you’re an Associate of ISC2 you can work on achieving the necessary work experience. Once you’ve met the work experience requirements you’ll then be able to upgrade to full CISSP certification.
