Why CISSP Certification?

Earning your (ISC)²® CISSP® certification is a major professional achievement that makes you stand out among your peers as a knowledgeable, skilled and experienced information security leader.

The certification demonstrates your information security expertise, and it is the top cybersecurity certification requested by employers in Arizona and nationwide. See our CISSP FAQs to learn more.

Why University of Arizona CISSP Exam Prep?

The 40-hour intensive University of Arizona CISSP Exam Prep class is designed to prepare you for the CISSP exam, quickly and effectively.

Our industry subject matter instructors know what it takes to pass the CISSP exam and have a demonstrated track record of preparing participants to pass this difficult exam.

The CISSP exam tests your knowledge across eight security domains, from security and risk management to software development security. However, the real challenge is that the CISSP exam also tests your critical thinking, decision-making, and information security management abilities.

That's why University of Arizona CISSP Exam Prep teaches you not just the CISSP domains, but also how to think strategically like a CISSP.

Who Should Take CISSP Exam Prep?

CISSP is designed for experienced security practitioners. In addition to passing the CISSP exam, CISSP certification requires at least five years of paid work experience in two (or more) of the eight CISSP domains.
