CISSP - ISSEP
Developed in conjunction with the National Security Agency, this ISSEP concentration is the guide for incorporating security into projects, applications, business processes, and all information systems. One of the domains holds specific relevance to U.S. law - however the CISSP-ISSEP credential, in general, is an extremely relevant tool for any security professional. It takes the candidate through some of the best practices and standard methodologies in the world today for risk management, systems security engineering, and certification and accreditation. Security professionals are hungry for workable methodologies and best practices that can be used to integrate security into all facets of business operations. The SSE model, taught in the IATF portion of the course, is a guiding light in the field of information security and the incorporation of security into all information systems.
