IntroductionCourse ObjectivesCourse ContentExam Details

The (ISC)2 Systems Security Certified Practitioner (SSCP) certification covers seven domains which they describe as ‘the compendium of topics pertaining to an Information Systems Security Practitioner’, the CBK (Common Body of Knowledge). The seven domains maps directly to the seven modules of this course listed below, it is referred to as a taxonomy or collection of past, present and future topics around Information Security.

The SSCP is aimed at security go-to-people, on the front line of a business dealing with technologies employed to protect Information. If you are responsible for implementing and maintaining countermeasures such as Firewalls, Intrusion Detection or Prevention, Anti-Virus solutions or Public Key Infrastructures and you want a certification to attest to your skills and professionalism within Information Security, this is it.

This credential is ideal of those who have already obtained or are working towards positions such as: Security Administrators; Security Systems Analysts and Network Security Administrators.

It may also be of interest to those who desire a better understanding of security, but do not have a direct security role, examples of these could include: System Administrators; Network Administrators; Systems Analysts; Auditors and Database Administrators.

  • SSCP maps to just over half of the CISSP required knowledge, so it is great as a precursor or certification path to follow if you intend on obtaining CISSP in the future.
  • Build a relationship with (ISC)2 and use the many member benefits to manage and improve your career as a Information Security professional.
  • SSCP allows you to waive one year of the 5 years experience required to pass CISSP, (other certifications can also allow this).


Required experience: one year working in the Information Security arena, covering at least one of the domains from the SSCP CBK. Proof of this must be supplied to (ISC)2
