CISSP Domain – Security Architecture and Design

This course is included in our On-demand training solution.


Computer administrators have a variety of mechanisms that can be used to secure modern enterprise environments. Several access control standards and models have been created by the international community to secure both personnel access and information recovery within an enterprise environment. This course examines hardware and software systems, memory storage types, security models, and security controls. This course guides you through the Common Body of Knowledge (CBK) recommended by the International Information Systems Security Certification Consortium (ISC2) for its Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP) certification. The CISSP credential certifies student expertise in ten different knowledge domains.

Target Audience

Mid- and senior-level managers who are working toward or have already attained positions as CISOs, CSOs, or Senior Security Engineers
