We just finished our CBK (Common Body of Knowledge) seminar, a one week training covering ten domains of security knowlegde:

  • Access Control Systems and Methodology
  • Applications and Systems Development
  • Security Business Continuity Planning (BCP) and Disaster Recovery Planning (DRP)
  • Cryptography
  • Law, Investigation and Ethics
  • Operations Security
  • Physical Security
  • Security Architecture and Models
  • Security Management Practices
  • Telecommunications and Network Security

Well, that was very intense, but we've learnt a lot! Even working in the security business for years, it's not posible to be an expert in every focus area.

More information on CBK, CISSP and (ISC)2, visit thier website:

As the first credential accredited by ANSI to ISO Standard 17024:2003 in the field of information security, the Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP®) certification provides information security professionals with not only an objective measure of competence but a globally recognized standard of achievement. The CISSP credential demonstrates competence in the 10 domains of the (ISC)² CISSP® CBK®.

The CISSP credential is ideal for mid- and senior-level managers who are working toward or have already attained positions as CISOs, CSOs or Senior Security Engineers.
