Wait, what is CISSP®?

For those that are new to their path to becoming a CISSP®, here is some information about the exam refresh. The CISSP® exam is a globally recognized certification in the world of information security that validates an individual's technical and managerial skills in security. Every three years, the (ISC)2 releases a new outline for the CISSP®. The exam has a time limit of three hours and students taking the Computerized Adaptive Testing (CAT) will see between 100 to 150 exam questions. As of February 2024, you must have 5 years of work experience in two or more of the eight domains on the exam. Click the link here to register or download the exam outline. 


Do I Need New Material to Study for the Exam?

No! We strongly believe that you do not need to buy all new books and study materials for this exam update. As you’ll see in our comparison document, there are no major changes to the exam outline. We suggest spending extra time on Domain 4, making sure you know and understand the new terms and topics. Scan the rest of the exam outline to make sure nothing is unfamiliar. 


The exam update for the CISSP does not have any major changes. We hope you find our comparison guide useful. If you see any errors or inaccuracies, please send us an email or ticket to let us know!
