DC 2011 Training Session // january 16 - 17


This Logical Security course trains students in all areas of the security Common Body of Knowledge (CBK). They will learn about security policy development, secure software development procedures, network vulnerabilities, attack types and corresponding countermeasures, cryptography concepts and their uses, disaster recovery plans and procedures, risk analysis, crucial laws and regulations, forensics basics, computer crime investigation procedures, physical security, and much, much more. They will explore the contents and concepts that make up the diverse domains and learn how they work together to provide true “in-depth” defense.

The CISSP exam is rigorous, covering ten security domains essential for the protection of information systems, corporations and national infrastructures. Understanding that security is an enterprise wide problem, these domains provide the candidate with a broad understanding of the technical, managerial and human factors that must coordinate effectively to keep information and systems secure. These domains include:

  • Access Control
  • Application Security
  • Business Continuity Planning and Disaster Recovery Planning
  • Cryptography
  • Legal, Regulations Compliance, and Investigations
  • Operations Security
  • Physical (Environmental) Security
  • Security Architecture and Design
  • Information Security and Risk Management
  • Telecommunications and Network Security

Using this course, students prepare for the exam, while at the same time obtaining essential security knowledge that can be immediately used to improve organizational security. This knowledge enhances services and products, secures business functions and infrastructures, provides better implementation processes, and can be used to restructure critical programs and procedures to help keep companies up-to-date on today’s business and security strategies, technologies, and best practices.
