How to pass the Certified Information Systems Security Professional Exam (CISSP).
There are many IT certifications. Nearly every day, thousands of jobs are available for those who can do the job well. Here is the study guide for the Certified Information Systems Security Professional exam (CISSP). This will help you to be the best candidate for the job. Let’s start by saying that CISSP is a highly sought-after and elite certification in the information security field. Although the CISSP exam can be difficult, frightening, and resource-intensive, it is not impossible to pass. A Certified Information Systems Security Professional certificate is a great way to make a career as a computer security professional.
As you may already know, CISSP stands for Certified Information Systems Security Professional. It was created by the International Information Systems Security Certification Consortium (ISC), in 1991. The CISSP certification allows you to demonstrate your knowledge and demonstrate your ability to install and manage an information security program.
If you are wondering what your title will look like, then a CISSP refers to a seasoned employee or consultant, usually with a title such as security analyst or security manager or chief information security officer. This person has been in the job for at least five years and has a deep understanding of the IT threat landscape. This includes emerging and exceptional persistent threats, controls, and technology to reduce attack surfaces.
A CISSP can also create policies to establish proper controls, and can oversee or operate risk management and software security.

Additionally, provisioning resources securely
Also, ensure appropriate asset retention (e.g. End-of Life (EOL), End of Support (EOS).
Determining data security controls, and compliance requirements
First, research, implementation, and management of engineering processes using secure design principles
Secondly, understanding the fundamental concepts behind security models (e.g., Biba Star Model, Bell LaPadula).
Selecting controls based on system security requirements
Understanding the security capabilities of Information Systems (IS).
Additionally, security architectures, designs, as well as solution elements, must be mitigated.
