The CISSP is the most well-worth credential in the specialty of data security. Having this certification demonstrates that the holder’s been working in IT Security for over five years, has a broad range of knowledge in ten domains related to creating, supporting, and maintaining a secure IT infrastructure, and can implement things like risk management and risk identification.

There are many unique and exciting IT career paths you can take once you've earned this award-winning certification. A few roles that use CISSP are an IT Security Manager who ensures everything cybersecurity-wise is running smoothly, an Ethical Hacker who works with the IT team to test for vulnerabilities, and a Penetration Tester whose job it is to test the integrity of a company's current systems. Additional CISSP job titles to explore include those involving forensics, analysis, engineering, and information assurance.

Information Systems Security Professional

The Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP) certification training program aims to equip students with in-demand technical and administrative competence to design, architect, and manage an organization’s security posture by applying internationally accepted information security standards.

The CISSP is an advanced-level certification. This program is ideal for experienced security practitioners, managers and executives interested in proving their knowledge across a wide array of security practices and principles. It is intended for the experienced IT security-related practitioners, auditors, consultants, investigators, or instructors, including network or security analysts and engineers, network administrators, information security specialists, and risk management professionals, who are pursuing CISSP training and certification to acquire the credibility and mobility to advance within their current computer security careers or to migrate to a related career.

This course provides in-depth coverage of the eight domains required to pass the CISSP exam: Security and Risk Management, Asset Security, Security Engineering, Communications and Network Security. Identity and Access Management, Security Assessment and Testing, Security Operations, and Software Development Security.

By completing this program and earning the CISSP certification, graduates have the chance to prove they have the technical and managerial knowledge necessary to effectively design, engineer, and manage the overall security posture of an organization.

Upon completion, MedCerts will cover the cost of the Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP) exam, sponsored by the International Information System Security Certification Consortium, or (ISC)².

MedCerts requires candidates for admission into this program have a minimum of 3 years of experience in the field of IT security. Students with less than 5 years of experience may take the CISSP exam but are NOT eligible to obtain the status of CISSP until the experience requirements are met.

To obtain CISSP certification, candidates must have a minimum of 5 years related paid full-time work experience. Earning a four-year college degree or regional equivalent or an additional credential from (ISC)² approved list will satisfy one year of the required experience.

Candidates may still pass the CISSP exam and become an Associate of (ISC)² while earning the required work experience. The Associate of (ISC)² will then have six years to earn the five years required experience. Additional information can be found here.
