Boot camp overview

This four-day Information Systems Security Architecture Professional (ISSAP) Boot Camp is focused on teaching you the management of security programs and the ins and outs of security architecture. You’ll learn the technical aspects of security architecture, including identity and access management, security operations, infrastructure, application security, governance and compliance, and security architecture modeling.

This boot camp not only teaches you the nuts and bolts of the security architecture, it prepares you to successfully pass the challenging (ISC)² ISSAP exam, one of three “concentration areas” for CISSP holders extending the CISSP common body of knowledge.
