COURSE INTRODUCTIONThe 6-day SSCP course provides comprehensive training in all 10 domains of the Common Body of Knowledge (CBK). The curriculum has been designed to meet a strict set of criteria covering all critical elements necessary for security today. It is aimed at professionals with at least four years of experience in the information security field or three years of experience and a college degree (or equivalent life experience).The SSCP certification is seen as a requirement for many technical and management positions.

The Shon Harris SSCP course teaches 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, computer crime investigation procedures, physical security, and more. Further, students will explore the contents and concepts that make up the diverse domains and learn how they work together to provide true in-depth defense.
