The CISSP Prep Guide: Mastering the Ten Domains of Computer Security

A one-stop source of information covering everything you’ll need to know in order to pass the CISSP examination

The CISSP Prep Guide

From stolen intellectual proprietary and denial of service attacks to unauthorized use of critical resources and computer viruses, e-business companies face numerous threats each day that can cost millions of dollars. The need for these companies to protect their networks and information systems has, in turn, created an unprecedented demand for information systems security professionals. In fact, today’s companies are fiercely headhunting for Certified Information Systems Security Professionals (CISSP). Based on the extensive test experience of the authors, this book serves as both a prep guide for IT professionals seeking to advance their careers through CISSP certification and as a reference on fundamental and emerging information security knowledge. It focuses on the common body of knowledge (CBK) as defined by the International Information Systems Security Certification Consortium (IS C)2. The ten domains of the CBK are covered in detail, including security management, cryptography, disaster recovery planning, and telecommunications security. Each domain of the CBK is then followed by a series of sample practice questions that are similar to those that you’ll encounter on the CISSP examination, helping you better prepare for and pass the exam.

This comprehensive book:

  • Covers the fundamental content of the CBK in a way that is independent of the breakdown or possible merger of the domains
  • Provides questions on each CBK domain along with explanations of the answers
  • Reflects the most recent advances in the information security field
  • Avoids the extraneous mathematical derivations, presenting only the information you’ll need to know for the CISSP examination
  • Includes valuable reference material and explores advanced topics in the appendices
