Other:
150+ student names added to our practice questions, we want you to be part of our questions. 

Yes, there will be detailed explanations of why the correct answer is correct and why the incorrect answers are incorrect.

Easy (E) level sample question:
Louise is the IT security manager for a large financial institution. She has recently implemented a new access control system that utilizes multi-factor authentication for all employees to access sensitive data. One of her employees, Hanna, has reported that she is unable to access certain data that she should have access to. After investigating the issue, Louise discovered that Hanna's access privileges were inadvertently revoked by another employee. What is the most appropriate action to take in this situation?

  1. Reassign Hanna's access privileges to the appropriate level.
  2. Have Hanna go through the multi-factor authentication process again to verify her identity.
  3. Have Hanna go through the entire onboarding process again, including security training and background checks.
  4. Terminate Hanna's employment for security breaches.

The correct answer:
Reassign Hanna's access privileges to the appropriate level: This is the most reasonable and efficient solution. The issue at hand is that Hanna's access privileges were mistakenly revoked. The most direct way to resolve the problem is to reassign these privileges at the level that is appropriate for her role. This should allow Hanna to access the data she needs for his work. We might also want to investigate how it happened to see if we want to implement further checks to avoid this in the future.

The incorrect answers:
Have Hanna go through the multi-factor authentication process again to verify her identity: The issue isn't with Hanna's identity verification but rather with her access privileges. Re-doing the multi-factor authentication won't restore access to the resources she needs.
Have Hanna go through the entire onboarding process again, including security training and background checks. This approach is unnecessary and time-consuming. The issue doesn't stem from Hanna's actions or a lack of training. It's a mistake in the access control settings. Also, making an employee repeat the onboarding process because of a simple administrative error could lead to frustration and lower morale.
Terminate Hanna's employment for security breaches: This is inappropriate because Hanna didn't commit any security breaches. In fact, she reported the problem. Her access was revoked due to an internal administrative error, not because of her own actions. Taking such a drastic step as termination would not only be unjust, but it could also create a hostile environment where employees may be afraid to report problems in the future.

All of them will be on ThorTeaches.com; most will be on Udemy.

CC Udemy has 1,200 CC questions, ThorTeaches.com has all 1,700 questions.

What are the main practical changes in the CISSP 2024 exam update?

My video on the changes: 
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nFd0TQ5oBT8

The CISSP 2024 exam update, includes a 1% weight shift from Domain 8 to Domain 1, fewer exam questions (100 to 150 instead of 125 to 175), and a shorter exam duration (3 hours instead of 4). Additionally, there’s an update in curriculum content across various domains, including new and expanded topics.

What are the actual curriculum changes?

Most of the changes is more emphasis on topics that are more relevant and in focus now like cloud computing, AI, privacy, etc.

Domain 1: Added external dependencies in business impact analysis.
Domain 2: No changes we know of.
Domain 3: Added Secure Access Service Edge (SASE), Quantum key distribution, and managing the information system lifecycle.
Domain 4: Added transport architecture, performance metrics, traffic flows, physical segmentations, edge networks, virtual private clouds, and network monitoring and management.

How will the question format be affected by the update?

The question format will remain a Computer Adaptive Testing (CAT) format, but with a different number of questions and reduced exam duration.

If I’m already studying, should I attempt the exam before or after the update?

It is generally recommended to take the exam before the update, given that the current materials are available, and you might be more familiar with them. However, if that’s not possible, the changes are considered minor and should not significantly impact your preparation.

Will I need to repurchase your study courses for the updated exam if I already have them?

No, if you have purchased courses from ThorTeaches.com or Udemy, you will receive updates for free. Only the versions on these platforms will be updated.

Can I take the CISSP exam remotely after the update?

No, all exams must be taken in-person at an authorized Pearson-Vue testing center.

What happens if I have already purchased study materials for the current exam but plan to take it after the update?

You should be fine, the changes are very minor. It is advisable to review the new topics from other sources as the update will introduce new content.

When will the new study materials for the 2024 exam changes be available?

For ThorTeaches.com and Udemy courses, updates will be made available before the exam changes. The official study guides, AIO, and practice questions from ISC2 typically become available 3 to 6 months after the exam updates.

Is there going to be a price change for the CISSP exam after the update?

There are no planned changes to the exam pricing.

How can I best prepare for the CISSP exam with the upcoming changes?

It is recommended to continue studying the current materials and familiarize yourself with the new topics. Taking advantage of the free course on how to study for the exam at free.thorteaches.com can provide valuable insights into effective preparation strategies.

Will the format of questions change in the updated CISSP exam?

The format will remain Computer Adaptive Testing (CAT), but there will be a total of 100 to 150 questions instead of the previous range of 125 to 175.

I am scheduled to take the CISSP exam right before the update; will my exam still be valid?

Yes, your exam and assuming you pass and get endorsed, your CISSP certification will be just as valid regardless of whether you take the exam before or after the update.

How much time will I have per question in the updated exam?

If you receive the maximum of 150 questions in your exam, you will have approximately 72 seconds per question within the 3-hour time limit.

What is the passing score for the updated CISSP exam?

The passing score for the CISSP exam remains the same, which is a scaled score of 700 out of 1000 points.

Will there be any changes to the CISSP experience requirements after the update?

There have been no announcements regarding changes to the CISSP experience requirements, which currently entail a minimum of five years of professional security work experience.

Do the CISSP exam updates include changes to the continuing professional education (CPE) requirements?

Will beta questions be included in the updated CISSP exam?

Yes, there will be 25 beta questions randomly dispersed within the first 100 questions of the exam.

Are the beta questions counted towards the final score?

No, beta questions are not counted toward your final score. They are used by ISC2 to validate the questions for future exams.

Will the beta questions be distinguishable from the scored questions?

No, you will not be able to distinguish beta questions from scored questions during the exam.

Can we expect new types of interactive questions in the updated CISSP exam?

There is no specific mention of new question types; the update focuses on content rather than question format.

How will the changes affect the weight of each domain in the CISSP exam?

All domains except for Domain 1 and Domain 8 will maintain their current weights. Domain 1 will increase by 1%, compensated for by a 1% decrease in Domain 8.

Will the difficulty level of the CISSP exam change after the update?

The difficulty is calibrated through the CAT format to reflect a consistent standard of knowledge, so it should remain comparable.

How frequently are the CISSP exam questions updated?

While there is a major curriculum update every three years, the actual exam questions can be updated more frequently to reflect current industry standards and practices.

Will the update affect the application process for the CISSP exam?

The application process for the CISSP exam is not expected to change with the update.

Are there any changes to the CISSP endorsement process after passing the exam?

No changes to the endorsement process have been announced.

Why is Lifetime Access more expensive than the standard 12-month access?
The premium price of Lifetime Access accounts for the ongoing costs to maintain, host, and update the course materials on our platform indefinitely, rather than just for 12 months.

Do I get access to all your courses on ThorTeaches.com when I buy lifetime access?
No, the lifetime access is purchased on a course level. If you want lifetime access to more courses, you need to purchase the courses you want.

Can I upgrade to Lifetime Access on courses I have not purchased?
You can only upgrade courses you own to lifetime access, or you can buy them initially with Lifetime Access.

Will I receive updates to the course with Lifetime Access?
Yes, all in-place updates to the course content are included with Lifetime Access. You’ll automatically receive the most current material without additional charges.

What does Lifetime mean on ThorTeaches.com?
In the context of this policy, “Lifetime” refers to the operational lifetime of the course on our platform, not the lifetime of the individual purchaser. Should ThorTeaches LLC undergo a business transition, such as cessation, sale, or restructuring, you will be provided a download link for the full course and all materials that you are enrolled in, preserving your educational investment. There are no near or long term plans for this, but proper contingencies should be clear.

Are there any maintenance or hidden fees associated with Lifetime Access?
No, there are no maintenance or hidden fees. The one-time premium payment covers all costs associated with the lifetime access to the course materials.

Can I switch from a 12-month access plan to Lifetime Access after my initial purchase?
Yes, you can upgrade to Lifetime Access at any time during your 12-month access period or after it expires. There is no deadline, even if your initial access has expired you can still get lifetime for 45% of the current course list price. It’s more cost-effective to select Lifetime Access at the time of your initial purchase.

Is Lifetime Access transferable to another student or individual?
No, Lifetime Access is non-transferable and is linked exclusively to the account of the original purchaser to ensure the integrity and security of account access.

Does Lifetime Access apply to all courses offered on ThorTeaches.com?
Yes, it is available for all our courses.

Will I still be able to access the course after I finish it?
Absolutely. Once you’ve finish the course, you will retain access to it for as long as your account remains in good standing. That means you can revisit and review the course content whenever you need a refresher or want to retake the entire course.

How often is the course content updated?
We update courses to align with the current exam version, all updates are done in-place. With Lifetime Access, you’re guaranteed to receive all these updates.

Can I get Lifetime Access for the Boson questions?
No, the Lifetime Access is only for our courses, we resell the Boson vouchers, so they are only 12-months access.
