Professionally Evil CISSP Mentor Program

 June 29, 2021 – August 24, 2021| October 5, 2021 – November 30, 2021 🗓💸

Lectures: Tuesdays from 2-4 pm EST

ISC2 describes the CISSP as a way to prove that “you have what it takes to effectively design, implement and manage a best-in-class cybersecurity program”. It is one of the primary certifications used as a stepping point in your cybersecurity career. To accomplish this, Secure Ideas has developed a mentorship program designed to provide the knowledge necessary to pass the certification, while working through the common body of knowledge (CBK) in a manner that encourages retention of the knowledge.

The mentorship program is designed as a 9 week series of sessions along with various student support and communication methods. These work together to provide the student a solid foundation to not only help in passing the certification but to continue as a collection of information for everyday work. This class is set up to cover the 8 domains of the ISC2 CBK.
