At least five (5) years of cumulative, paid full-time work experience and must cover two or more of the eight domains off the CISSP CBK. A four-year college degree, a regional equivalent, or an additional credential from the (ISC)² approved list will satisfy one (1) year of the required experience.
Equivalent courses to the CISSP include ISACA CISM (Certified Information Security Manager) or one of three other CISSP concentrations in architecture, engineering, and management.
Recommended subsequent certifications to pursue following CISSP depends on how practitioners would like to shape their careers. Individuals can pursue CISA (Certified Information Systems Auditor) by ISACA for a career in auditing security or CCSP (Certified Cloud Security Professional) by (ISC)² for a career in cloud.

"I would not have passed the CISSP exam without Cybervista! The instructors were knowledgeable and helpful in grasping the material... The weekly online lessons were extremely helpful in breaking down each of the domains covered on the exam. If you follow the study plan provided and put in the time required to understand the major concepts outlined by CyberVista, you’ll pass!"
"When I was training I found myself using CyberVista’s quiz bank a lot, plus they tested me in other ways such as the initial diagnostic exam, the midterm, and the final exam. Getting used to the wording and doing all those practice questions helped me prepare. There was also a system at CyberVista for figuring out my strengths and weaknesses – it honed in on the areas I needed to study more."
"Before CyberVista I was given an opportunity to attend a one-week boot camp. Since my employer was paying for it, I did not hesitate to take advantage of the offer. After that one-week boot camp, I came out of there with more questions than I had going in. I did not feel prepared and the training just simply wasn’t enough. CyberVista’s curriculum is an integration of live online lectures, on-demand videos, and an array of self-study tools–it was just what I needed."
"This was my first time studying for a certification through live online training. There were definitely benefits to taking a live online class. For example, you can take your classes from anywhere with an internet connection. I’m happy the training was spread out leveraging multiple learning tools. It was the balance of all of those different aspects that helped to reinforce concepts and instill a strong comprehension of the CISSP."
"I started with a free self-study course and quickly found the accountability was missing. CyberVista’s live interactive course using the light board was a first for me and a great experience overall. It kept me accountable and engaged. The real-life experience of the instructors was evident and their ability to articulate concepts was great. The value of interacting with other students in this live environment was also a significant benefit. It’s not easy getting folks to participate, but CyberVista made it happen."
"After taking the course back in December, this course gave me the discipline to easily digest all the materials that helped me pass the CISSP. The exam was extremely difficult however, I felt more prepared as this course gives you a strong foundation to tackle most of the concepts. I would strongly recommend taking this course for preparation and success for the CISSP!"
