ISC2 Launches Virtual Seminars for Information Security Architecture, Engineering and Management Credentials


PALM HARBOR, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--(ISC)(“ISC-squared”), the not-for-profit global leader in educating and certifying information security professionals throughout their careers with more than 68,000 members worldwide, today announced LiveOnLine Official CBK Review Seminars® for its Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP) concentrations, including architecture (CISSP-ISSAP®), engineering (CISSP-ISSEP®), and management (CISSP-ISSMP®).

LiveOnLine virtual seminars are taught by (ISC)2-authorized instructors with years of experience in the specialized LiveOnLine courses and offer all the features of classroom-based seminars but spare students the burden of travel costs.

Delivered in two separate two-hour sessions per week over 10 weeks, the Review Seminars include up-to-date material, examples, illustrations and experiences from current credential holders, a real-world-based overview of the relevant areas of information systems security, and a post-seminar self-assessment.

During the live sessions, students can pose questions or comments to the instructor and receive immediate feedback or clarification. The materials are then archived and can be accessed by students at any time. As students listen to an archived version of the course, they can direct questions to the instructor via e-mail.

“As the most comprehensive review of information security concepts and industry best practices available in the world today, the LiveOnLine seminars offer all the benefits of the acclaimed Official (ISC)2 Official CBK Review Seminars in a convenient online format,” said W. Hord Tipton CISSP-ISSEP, CAP, CISA, executive director of (ISC)2.

Only experienced information security professionals with a CISSP credential in good standing who have demonstrated capabilities and subject matter expertise in the areas of architecture, engineering or management are eligible to earn one of the CISSP concentrations. The three concentrations complement the CISSP for those desiring additional validation of skills in their chosen career path.

LiveOnLine participants require a computer with at least Windows XP SP2 or later operating system, speakers or a headset, and the ability to download a WebEx client. Students will receive a hard copy of the course materials.
