The goal of this five-day immersed SSCP course is to provide IT and information security professionals with a fully-immersed, zero-distraction, all-inclusive SSCP training experience.
Your course package is designed to provide maximum learning and convenience. This is included in the price of your course:
Your expert instructor will get you ready for the following exam and certification, which are included in your course package and covered by the Certification guarantee.
There are currently no formal prerequisites to attend the SSCP course. Though it is recommended that delegates have some knowledge of other IT domains, including a basic working knowledge of network technologies. The CompTIA Security+ certification, while not required, would also be beneficial.
In order to attain the SSCP certification, delegates require a minimum of one year’s cumulative paid full-time work experience in one or more of the seven domains covered in the SSCP CBK. Valid experience includes information systems security-related work performed, or work that requires information security knowledge and involves direct application of that knowledge.
If you do not have the required experience, you may still sit for the exam and become an Associate of (ISC)2 until you have gained the required experience.
Using our engaging learning methodology including a variety of tools, we’ll cover the entire curriculum.
This course covers the seven domains contained in the SSCP Common Body of Knowledge. Delivered in the following order:

Cryptography - concepts, requirements, secure protocols, implementation
Identify and differentiate key cryptographic concepts and how to apply them, implement secure protocols, key management concepts, key administration and validation, and Public Key Infrastructure as it applies to securing communications in the presence of third parties
Networks & communications security - network architecture, protocols, security controls
Define and identify the Networks and Communications Security needed to secure network structure, data transmission methods, transport formats, and the security measures used to maintain integrity, availability, authentication, and confidentiality of the information being transmitted
System & application security - malicious code, cloud security, virtual environments
The Systems and Application Security section identifies and defines technical and non-technical attacks and how an organization can protect itself from these attacks including the concepts in endpoint device security, cloud infrastructure security, securing big data systems, and securing virtual environments.
The Virtual Classroom is an online forum, where you will join your instructor and fellow classmates in real time. Everything happens live and you can interact freely, discuss, ask questions, and watch your instructor present on a whiteboard, discuss the courseware and slides, work with labs, and review.
