What you'll learn

Training overview

This four-day Information Systems Security Management Professional (ISSMP) Boot Camp focuses on professional management experience and how it relates to a larger enterprise-wide security model. You’ll learn deeper managerial elements such as project management, risk management, setting up and delivering a security awareness program, and managing a business continuity planning program.

This boot camp teaches you how to establish, present and govern information security policies and procedures that are supportive to overall business goals, rather than a drain on resources. It also prepares you to successfully pass the challenging (ISC)² ISSMP exam, one of three “concentration areas” for CISSP holders extending the CISSP common body of knowledge.
