ANSI has awarded CISSP official recognition in the field of cybersecurity under ISO/IEC 17024. This represents the first time that an information technology accreditation has been given ANSI approval. CISSP is also officially recognized by the United States Department of Defense in their IAT and IAM disciplines. In addition, CISSP has been accepted as a standard for the U.S. National Security Agency's Information Systems Security Engineering Professional program to safeguard the National Information Infrastructure.

    This involves the concepts, structures, and guidelines followed to design, track, and protect OS platforms, hardware, infrastructure, and applications as well as the controls utilized to enforce various degrees of availability, consistency, and privacy.

  • Access Management Solutions and Processes
    Access controls are a collection of technologies that work together to create a security infrastructure to protect the assets of the information system.

  • Applications Development Security
    This covers the key security principles associated with application development. Applications development security outlines the environment where software is planned and developed and explains the vital role software plays in providing information system protection.

  • Operations Security
    Operations security involves defining the controls over hardware and storage media and overseeing the technicians and administrators who have access rights to any of these assets. Audit and tracking are the mechanisms and facilities that permit the awareness of security-relevant events and consequent actions to discover the key factors and report the pertinent data to the designated person, group, or process.

  • Physical Security
    Site security provides security mechanisms for the entire physical facility, from the outside perimeter to the desk, including all of the information system assets.

  • Cryptography
    Cryptography covers the concepts, means, and methods of cloaking data to ensure its integrity, privacy, and authenticity.

  • Telecom, Network and WAN Security
    This area involves:
    • Network Structures
    • Transmission mechanisms
    • Transport formats
    • Security techniques used to provide reliability, integrity, and privacy
    • Authentication for transmissions over private and public communications networks and media.
  • Business Continuity Preparedness
    The Business Continuity Plan (BCP) addresses the protection and restoration of commercial operations after network disruptions.

  • Risk Analysis
    Risk analysis evaluates an organization's vulnerability to cyber attacks, sizes the possible damage of various known threats, and identifies appropriate controls and mitigation procedures to minimize exposure.
