The SSCP Prep Guide: Mastering the Seven Key Areas of System Security

A one-stop source of security and privacy information for IT professionals, covering everything you’ll need to know to pass the Systems Security Certified Practitioner examination

This prep guide and general reference will help you breeze through the SSCP security certification test by greatly enhancing your understanding of how to implement security policies, standards, and procedures. Covered in detail are the seven domains of the common body of knowledge (CBK), as defined by the (ISC)2. Explore such topics as access controls, administration, audit and monitoring, cryptography, and data communications. Test yourself with 30 sample practice questions for each domain, which are similar to those you’ll encounter on the SSCP examination.

Providing you with all the tools you’ll need to become proficient in systems security, this guide covers:

  • Mechanisms to specify user and process rights
  • System vulnerabilities, safeguards, and recovery plans and procedures
  • Means to disguise information to ensure its integrity, confidentiality, authenticity, and nonrepudiation
  • Ways to protect against infection, abuse, or negative impacts to the proper operation of an information processing system or network

The CD-ROM contains a list of links to security Web sites as well as PDFs of the Risk Management Guide for Information Technology Systems (from NIST) and standards from FIPS. A special feature is the Wiley test engine, a complete interactive self-test using all the questions and answers from the book, powered by Boson software.
