Are you interested in the CISSP certification? How might it improve your career? On the resume? Getting a new job? On the business card? Maintaining your career and moving you up the ladder. With your skill set? As the professional you are. How about helping with that pay raise?

We will look at how management views this well sought-after certification.

Have you been studying for it? Do you plan to take the exam real soon? On January 15, 2015 ISC2, the certifying body for the CISSP certification exam, released a new set of exam objectives for the CISSP certification exam.

These changes were implemented on the CISSP certification exam beginning April 15, 2015.

This new set of exam objectives is a major change from the previous version of the CISSP exam.

ISC2 has moved and merged content to form 8 Domains of the Common Body of Knowledge, down from 10 Domains in the previous exam. They have also added numerous new topics to the objectives.

You will need to know about the new material you will be tested on.
