Topic & Speaker 

Glenn Howard

Understanding the CISSP domains and the CBK


If you intend to climb the career ladder in IT or Cybersecurity, you should consider being certified by ISC(2). The most popular and respected certifications is of course, the Certified Information Systems Security Professionals (CISSP). The CISSP certification validates your skills and experience as an information security practitioner for your organization.

Many organizations including the U.S. Government, rely on this exam to ensure the readiness of their IT security teams and because CISSP is globally recognized and is one of the most sought-after certifications in information security, it is listed as one of the top security certifications you should seek out.

The current Common Body of Knowledge (CBK) is made up of 8 domains and you will need to be proficient in each domain to receive and maintain your certification. In this month's presentation, I will break down each of the eight domains from the CISSP CBK, including how much weight each domain holds in the exam and their relevance to your day-to-day operations.
