Published on ThorTeaches and Udemy:
We are done with the changes to Domain 1 and 2 and we are actively working on domain 3.
Once all the 2021 curriculum changes are completed, we will resume updating domain 4-8 in general to include more examples, more exam points of view, and more in-depth lectures on exam-heavy topics.
The 2021 changes are very minor, it is 2-3% new curriculum being added. That is what we are adding to the courses now.

Q: In which order are you redoing the courses?
A: We are redoing the CISSP courses first starting with domain 1, then we will do the CISM courses.
Q: How will this happen?
A: We will record one domain at a time.
Q: How are they being updated?
A: Video on ThorTeaches.com and Udemy.com will be uploaded as soon as they are completed. New videos are being added daily. When they are recorded, edited, and subtitles are completed.
For videos on Safari we give them 1 domain at a time as soon as the entire domain is done, how long it takes them to upload I have no clue.
Q: If I already have your courses do I need to buy the new versions?
A: No, the update is being done in place, at no extra charge, you have already paid for them.
The same when the CISSP curriculum updates in 2021, also no charge for the updated content.
Q: When will the updates be completed?
A: Good question, that depends on how 2021 behaves. Right now we are recording the 2021 CISSP updates. Best estimate is late Summer for it all to be completed (2021 CISSP update, general CISSP/CISM updates, new questions, etc.)
ThorTeaches.com update FAQ
ThorTeaches.com has everything we offer:
Videos, 1,000 easy/mid and 500 hard questions, the new awesome video search option, study guides, the new test interface, everything in a bundle, and 2021 video updates as they are released.
Videos, 1,000 easy/mid, study guides, single course purchases, offline viewing, and 2021 video updates as they are released.
Videos, study guides, subscription, and 2021 video updates whenever a full domain is completed and they upload it.
It is a new search function in my video courses where you can search on any topic and get shown all the videos where I mention that term.
It is available for both our CISSP and CISM students.
I think it can be an amazing tool for when you are doing practice questions and you need to focus on specific topics, and because of that, we have spent a lot of time, effort, and money to make this feature a reality.
See how it works:
We did not automatically migrate everyone to the new interfaces and functionality because it would reset your course progress, since we know many use it for tracking your progress and CPEs, it is an opt-in scenario.
If you want to get the new functionality and you are OK with losing your progress email us at [email protected], use the email you signed up with and write “Migrate me please” in the subject.
Yes, we are working on even more integration:
• With the new test interface, you will be able to review all exams, questions you got wrong, right, marked for review, or skipped, your score in each domain and overall.
• Our order system and invoices in your student interface, where you can add the company name, if you need it for your records or you can get the cost reimbursed.
