(ISC)2 CISSP - Certified Information Systems Security Professional

CISSP is the gold standard credential to pursue for IT security professionals. It remains at the very top of the game and is a requirement for a majority of senior IT security roles. The CISSP certification proves you have the advanced skills, knowledge and commitment required, to command higher wages. The challenging standards require students to have at least 5 years of experience in two of the eight (ISC)2 domains. Additionally, you must complete a 100-150 multiple choice- and advanced innovative questions exam in order to be officially certified. This is no walk in the park and that’s why the Readynez CISSP course- and certification program is taught by experts who will work with you before, during and after your course to ensure you're best prepared for the exam. Although a difficult process, the return on investment makes it one of the most highly sought after courses available.



The Virtual Classroom is an online room, where you will join your instructor and fellow classmates in real time. Everything happens live and you can interact freely, discuss, ask questions, and watch your instructor present on a whiteboard, discuss the courseware and slides, work with labs, and review.

Your exam voucher is usually included in your virtual training package. When you´re ready to sit your exam, you just book it with the exam provider. You can sit most exams from home or at a local test centre. We’re here to help you with that process.

In order to earn this certification, you must have a deep understanding of cloud security architecture, design, operations, and service orchestration.

Cloud security architects, designers, operators, and orchestrators with the CCSP credential have demonstrated their ability to apply industry best practices to all aspects of cloud security. It demonstrates that you're at the cutting edge of cloud security.

Security professionals who successfully complete the Certified Cloud Security Professional (CCSP) exam are recognized as experts in their field. The CCSP exam is designed to ensure that cloud security professionals have the required knowledge, skills and abilities in cloud security design, implementation, architecture, operations, controls and compliance with regulatory frameworks.

The ideal candidates are more senior IT architects and security professionals, including engineers, and the must hold a minimum of five years of experience in IT, three of which must be in information security, with one year in cloud computing. The candidate should also be able to demonstrate capabilities in each of the six CBK domains (see below in “What is the syllabus for the CCSP Certification”).

The CCSP exam costs $599, and costs are comparable in local currencies in the European Union and the United Kingdom.

The CCSP exam is not included in your Readynez course.

To achieve the CCSP certification, please consider the following:

  • Candidates must have a cumulative total of five years of paid, full-time work experience in information technology
  • Three years must be spent in information security, and one year must be spent in one or more of the CCSP Common Body of Knowledge's six domains (CBK).
  • Earning the CISSP credential from (ISC)2 can be used to satisfy the entire CCSP experience requirement

Your CCSP certification is valid for a period of three years. The member must, however, continue to complete certain standards in order to keep his or her certification active and effective.

Typical job roles for people holding this certification are;

  • Security Administrator
  • Security Consultant
  • Security Engineer
  • Security Architect
  • Security Manager
  • Systems Engineer
  • Systems Architect
  • Enterprise Architect

The syllabus for the CCSP exam includes the following domains:
