Information Security is all about staying informed. And the CISSP is no exception. If you’re not reading then you’re falling behind. When you take the CISSP Boot Camp course from InfoSec you will receive a copy of Shon Harris’s CISSP All-in-One Exam Guide, Fifth Edition – Hardcover (Jan. 15, […]
Operations Security (OpSec) is concerned with the same basic elements as all the other CISSP domains and those are confidentiality, integrity and availability.
So let’s approach OpSec from that CIA perspective: How do we keep the data and systems confidential, maintain integrity and ensure they are available? There needs to […]
Application development security requires an awareness of how different environments demand different security. For example, the security for running a mainframe application that is not accessible by anything except the mainframe would be considerably different than the security for a web based application that anyone on the internet has […]
There are several topics we need to look at when we discuss the Legal domain of CISSP. First you need some background and a couple of important distinctions:

Steganography (as we discussed in our coverage of the CISSP Cryptography Domain) is the hiding of information within a picture, say a *.bmp file or a *.gif file. To demonstrate steganography’s simplicity this article will cover a brief demonstration of hiding information within a BMP picture […]
You only have to turn on the TV and watch some of the footage of the destruction caused by the tsunami in Japan to realize the importance of business continuity and disaster recovery planning or think back to the September 11 attacks and remember the destruction in New York City […]

This week’s article looks at the Physical and Environmental Security domain of CISSP. First and foremost, (ISC)2 and the CISSP exam consider human safety paramount. If you have a test question and one of the answers is human safety, that is the right answer, it is always MOST important.
This article will cover some of the major areas within Security Architecture and Design by looking at: design concepts, hardware architecture, OS and software architecture, security models, modes of operations, and some system evaluation methods, specifically CAP.
