With the amount of computer crime occurring in big corporations and multinational companies, being certified as a CISSP is quickly becoming the hottest career of the millennium. Adding to this epidemic of security breaches and hacking by cyberspies into classified systems is mandatory compliance with legislations like the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act; and the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act. This has become a serious problem for the healthcare and financial-related companies, who are searching for individuals who can protect confidential information documented on their computer systems. Employers today want their employees to know about security implementation and are specifically searching for those who combine that knowledge with a certification.
Choosing a Program for CISSP and PMP Certification
If you are interested in taking either the CISSP or PMP tests, there are many e-books, CISSP practice tests and e-learning courses available on the internet. But since both fields require an extensive range of knowledge before being able to take and pass the tests, you may want to study for several weeks before deciding to take either exam. CISSP .com is a portal specifically meant for the Certified Information Systems Security Professional where knowledge and tips are shared among other CISSP's. There is also a lot of information regarding the steps you need to take in order to become a CISSP certified
What to Look For
There are several factors you should look for when choosing a CISSP or PMP course so that you are guaranteed to receive the proper training. Initially, make sure that the credentials of the teacher can be verified. An instructor of this type needs to be an expert in all of the security domains constituting the information security systems field. The best instructor would be certified in the following security domains: include (ISC)2's CISSP, ISACA's CISA, CompTIA's Security+, SCP's SCNP, Check Point's CCSE and CCSI, Cisco's CCIE, CCNP, and CCSP, Microsoft's MCT, MCSE, and MCSD, Nokia's NSA, TruSecure's TICSA, and SANS's GIAC. Actually, the CISSP test consists of ten different security domains so it is like taking ten exams instead of just one! Just make sure the instructor you choose is qualified to teach all ten of these domains.
