CISSP-certified Cybersecurity ConsultantsProgent can provide fast and affordable access to CISSP-certified cybersecurity consultants. CISSP certification is the most esteemed cybersecurity credential in the industry and denotes mastery of a global standard for network security. To earn the CISSP credential, consultants must demonstrate in-depth understanding of modern cybersecurity strategies and confirm years of professional, hands-on implementation experience.

American National Standards Institute (ANSI) has awarded the CISSP credential official accreditation in the area of information security under ISO/IEC 17024. This represents the first time that an information technology credential has been given ANSI approval. CISSP is also formally approved by the United States Department of Defense (DoD) in their Information Assurance Technical and Managerial (IAT and IAM) categories. In addition, the CISSP credential has been adopted as a standard for the U.S. National Security Agency's ISSEP program to protect the National Information Infrastructure (NII).

  • Security Management Practices
    Security administration entails the determination of a company's information assets and the creation, documentation, and implementation of policies, procedures, and standards. Administration tools that include data categorization and threat assessment can be used to determine possible threats, categorize valuable data, and evaluate system vulnerabilities so that effective controls can be put in place.

  • Security Infrastructure and Models
    This concerns the principles, framework, and guidelines followed to build, monitor, and protect operating systems, hardware, infrastructure, and application software as well as the tools used to enforce different levels of availability, consistency, and privacy.

  • Access Controls and Processes
    Access controls are a collection of mechanisms that operate cohesively to create a security architecture to protect the high-value data of the information network.

  • Applications Development Security
    This involves the key security principles associated with the development of application software. Applications development security outlines the circumstances where software is planned and developed and elucidates the vital role software plays in providing IT network protection.

  • Operations Security
    Operations security involves determining controls over equipment and media and overseeing the operators and managers with access rights to any of these assets. Audit and tracking tools and procedures provide awareness of security-related activity and support follow-up efforts to identify and report relevant information to the appropriate person, group, or process.

  • Physical Security
    Physical security provides security mechanisms for an entire physical facility, from the outside perimeter to the inside office space, including all of the information system resources.

  • Data Encryption
    Data Encryption entails the principles, techniques, and methods of disguising data in a way that ensures its consistency, privacy, and legitimacy.

  • Telecom, Network and Internet Security
    This area concerns:
    • Network Infrastructure
    • Transmission methods
    • Transport protocols
    • Security measures used to provide availability, consistency, and confidentiality
    • Validation for transmissions over private and public networks and media.
  • Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery Planning
    The Business Continuity Plan covers the preservation and recovery of all critical commercial operations after outages. The Disaster Recovery Plan is more narrowly focused on resuming activity related to the information system.

  • Risk Analysis
    Risk analysis assesses an organization's vulnerability to cyber attacks, evaluates the damage potential of specific modern threats, and identifies best-practice controls and mitigation procedures to minimize exposure.

  • Crime Law, Investigation and Ethics
    This discipline covers:
    • Information system crime laws
    • The procedures followed and technologies used to investigate cyber crime
