WHAT IS THE CISSP?

The Industry-Leading Cybersecurity Certification

Backed by globally recognized nonprofit, (ISC)², the CISSP stands for “Certified Information Systems Security Professional.” The CISSP is the ideal credential for those with proven deep technical and managerial competence, skills, experience, and credibility to design, engineer, implement, and manage their overall information security program to protect organizations from growing sophisticated attacks.

Not only is the CISSP an objective measure of excellence, but also a globally recognized standard of achievement. CyberVista is proud to be an (ISC)² Approved training provider for the CISSP. For a free summary sheet PDF of the CISSP exam, please click the button below to start your download.
