Never thought I would say no to Nutella, but … NO Nutella!

Just saw this suggestion from Nutella on passwords. I thought oh wow really?!!? and then “This is why we can’t have nice things”.

This is exactly why we do NOT allot dictionary words in out passwords, and why user training is so important for us to raise user awareness.

I will just leave my slide from CISSP domain 5 hang there for a few.

All videos updated with the April 15th 2018 changes.

Good news everyone!

I just finished updating all the videos on my free CISSP Certification Essentials + 80 practice questions! 2018 with the changes from the new April 15th 2018 CISSP curriculum.

https://udemy.com/cissp-essentials/

I did it obviously to ensure this course is current, but also as part of upcoming full CISSP course (ETA 2-4 weeks).

The changes to the curriculum are very minor, less than 1%.

Of the curriculum changes that happens every 3 years, this is by far the smallest.

I mentioned it last time, if I was a student I would not buy another book if I already had the old one. As a diligent instructor I of course bought it 🙂

I hope I can help you get certified,

My thoughts on the new official CISSP book April 15th 2018 and discounts on my practice tests.

I just finished looking at the new version of the official CISSP book from the April 15th 2018 curriculum revision (It is available now on amazon for kindle, hard copy available early/mid may).
The updates are even less than we initially thought, we expected 3-5% change and it is actually less than 1%.
I still would not buy it as a student, IF I already had the previous version.
To reflect the changes I have updated some of my practice questions and all my CISSP test courses are available for only $9.99 per course.
Chose the set that best compliments your study approach, both sets are based on the same unique 1,000 questions.
 
Set 1 is made to emulate the CISSP exam, there are 4 test courses with 2 full 125 questions in each.
 
Set 2 is based on the CISSP CBK knowledge areas, there are also 4 tests with 2 CBK domains each. Domain 1-2, 3-4, 5-6, and 7-8.
CISSP certification practice questions Domain 1 & 2
CISSP certification practice questions Domain 3 & 4

My thoughts on the April 15th CISSP curriculum updates.

TL;DR; No need to buy new study materials, the changes are 1% or less, it is just reshuffling of knowledge areas.

With the updates to the CISSP curriculum I figured I would also give my 2 cents on the updates.

The updates are mostly on the organizational side of the curriculum, and not the actual content. It is mostly renaming, reorganizing and domain weight redistribution.

As a teacher I will buy the new books as soon as they are out (they are already pre-ordered).

If I was studying for the CISSP, I probably would not buy anything to replace my old materials, the changes being 1% actual updates or less.

That really goes for any study materials: Books, videos, practice tests, pod casts, anything.
If you have the 2015 versions, buying newer versions would not help you really.

I am going to update my practice tests in early May with questions from some of the actual updates (attribute-based access control, asset management, more IOT, more AI and some standards).

Previous domain name/weight:                   New domain name/weight:

Domain 1:
Security and Risk Management – 16%        Security and Risk Management – 15%
Mostly format and name changes of content. 0-1% update on actual curriculum.

Domain 2:
Asset Security – 10%                                      Asset Security – 10%
Cryptography moved to domain 3 where it should be and smaller format and name changes of content. 0-1% update on actual curriculum.

Domain 3:
Security Engineering – 12%                            Security Architecture and Engineering – 13%
Mostly format and name changes of content. 1-2% update on actual curriculum, mostly IOT and newer technologies, which are already on the exam and Cryptography being moved in from other domains.

Domain 4:
Communications and Network Security – 12%   Communication and Network Security – 14%
Cryptography moved to domain 3 where it should be and smaller format and name changes of content. 0-1% update on actual curriculum.

Domain 5:
Identity and Access Management – 13%         Identity and Access Management (IAM) – 13%
Mostly format and name changes of content. 0-1% update on actual curriculum.

Domain 6:
Security and Assessment Testing – 11%           Security Assessment and Testing – 12%
Mostly format and name changes of content. 0-1% update on actual curriculum.

Domain 7:
Security Operations – 16%                                 Security Operations – 13%
Mostly format and name changes of content. 0-1% update on actual curriculum.

Domain 8:
Software Development Security – 10%              Software Development Security – 10%
Mostly format and name changes of content. 0-1% update on actual curriculum.

If you have any questions about the upcoming changes feel free to post on this thread.

I hope I can help you get certified,
