MN Cyber Training Program for CISSP® Certification

The MN Cyber CISSP® Certification Training course focuses solely on the 8 domains of knowledge as determined by (ISC)2 that form a critical part of CISSP® exam.  Each domain of knowledge is dissected into its critical components, and those components are then discussed in terms of their relationship with one another and with other areas of information security.  The Security Operations domain is supported by a scenario on the MN Cyber Range to solidify understanding of theory to application.

Courses are face-to-face, and attendance is required.

This non-credit course will prepare you to take the CISSP® certification exam.  This is a vendor-neutral and globally recognized industry certification.  Certification exam is not included in the course price.

Length: 42 total hours

The CISSP® certification is designed for:

  • IT security analysts
  • Vulnerability analysts
  • Threat intelligence analysts

The broad spectrum of topics included in the CISSP® Common Body of Knowledge (CBK) ensure its relevancy across all disciplines in the field of information security.  Successful candidates are competent in the following 8 domains:
