Welcome to the Security Engineering Skills Course & Certification Test
With an increasing emphasis on the defense domain, security engineering is more important than ever. It provides IT professionals a means to ensure adequate consideration to security measures and when needed, specific secure designs that can be integrated into the overall system during development. The purpose is to build systems that will remain dependable in the face of hackers or error. Security engineering is a field which requires cross-disciplinary knowledge in areas such as cryptography and site design security. Likewise, professionals in this role must possess expertise in various security models, secure principles for site and facility design, and mitigation strategy for mobile, embedded, and web-based systems. The CISSP exam, which covers these vast concepts, puts security engineering into domain 3 and accounts for about 12% of the exam overall. In an effort to minimize the extensive list of ‘need to know topics,’ the security engineering skill certification test focuses on tools, processes and methods needed to design, test and implement complete systems. Due to the vast required skillset of a security engineer, typically, those employed in this position make a median annual salary of 87,000 in the United States, according to PayScale.
