The CISSP-ISSAP credential demonstrates mastery of the most rigorous requirements for information security architecture. An ISSAP certified consultant must be a CISSP in good standing, pass the ISSAP examination, and demonstrate two years of professional experience in the area of security architecture. ISSAP consultants have in-depth knowledge of access control systems and methodologies, telecommunications and network security, cryptography, requirements analysis, business continuity and disaster recovery planning, and physical security integration. The Information System Security Architecture Professional (ISSAP) Certification indicates proven competence in the more in-depth requirements of information security architecture, within the broader scope of information security knowledge required for CISSP certification.
