Who should attend this SSCP Training Course?

This Systems Security Certified Practitioner training course is designed for those who possess technical IT capabilities and practical knowledge of IT security.

Individuals within the following job roles will also benefit from this SSCP certification:

  • Network Security Engineers
  • Systems Engineers
  • Systems/Network Administrators

Prerequisites

In order to attend this SSCP training course, delegates must have experience amounting to a year in the realm of information systems security, or within a job role that requires individuals to implement their knowledge of information security

Systems Security Certified Practitioner Course Overview

Systems Security Certified Practitioner, or SSCP, is a prominent and globally recognised IT security qualification. Therefore, SSCP is a potent demonstrator of credibility and cybersecurity expertise, which is essential and desirable to employers within this ever-changing sphere. SSCP qualified individuals are valued within enterprises due to their ability to secure the confidentiality, reputability, and accessibility of data.

Our SSCP training course will focus extensively on the seven domains, which encompass the most paramount subjects of study relating to information systems security. The seven domains enlisted in the Common Body of Knowledge (CBK) are:

  • Access Controls
  • Security Operations and Administrations
  • Risk Identification, Monitoring, and Analysis
  • Incident Response and Recovery
  • Cryptography
  • Network and Communications Security
  • Systems and Application Security

These seven domains will explore the incorporation of preceding, present, and impending matters concentrated on information systems security, to ensure the delegate’s understanding of how IT systems are constantly developing.

Primarily, this training course will prepare individuals for the SSCP examination, which needs to be completed in order to acquire the certification. The exam is based on the seven domains, which, as discussed, will be in detail throughout the training course. SSCP will provide delegates with the necessary specialised skills to implement, control, and manage IT infrastructure, by adopting information security strategies and processes.

The demand for the efficient protection of security networks is expanding rapidly, not only to reduce the possibility of breaches but also to help organisations recover when a hacker has been successful. Breaches can be detrimental to the reputation of an enterprise as consumers lose trust, thus this SSCP qualification ensures that delegates are aware of how to recuperate and implement improvement measures. SSCP will also ensure individuals have the ability to adopt a business-oriented approach to IS security and are a prominent indication of the commitment to information systems security within their own organisation.
