>> Welcome back to Cybrary ISSEP Course,
00:00
I'm your instructor, Brad Rhodes.
00:00
Let's get started with Module 1 of 10.
00:00
We get 10 modules, which we're
00:00
going to talk about that here,
00:00
and we're going to jump into the overview.
00:00
This is the overview of the course.
00:00
Welcome to the course overview.
00:00
In this video, we're going to
00:00
look at our module objectives,
00:00
we're going to look at the course objectives,
00:00
and we're going to look at the course outline in
00:00
a little more detail so
00:00
you know what you're getting into.
00:00
Here is the module objectives.
00:00
On this first module, this is your first taste,
00:00
your first introduction into this thing we call ISSEP.
00:00
We're going to look at the CISSP concentrations
00:00
themselves so you know what they are.
00:00
The CISSP concentrations are
00:00
a unique set of three concentrations you can get to,
00:00
show and demonstrate
00:00
subject matter expertise,
00:00
which I'll talk about in a second.
00:00
We're going to review the CISSP domains,
00:00
the Certified Information
00:00
Systems Security Professional domains.
00:00
Why? Because if you are going to
00:00
pursue the ISSEP concentration as a professional cert,
00:00
as an add-on to your CISSP,
00:00
then you need to understand that
00:00
those domains are very important.
00:00
That's the basis of a lot of things with ISSEP.
00:00
By the way, if you took your CISSP 10 years ago,
00:00
the domains have changed.
00:00
You're going to want to go back and review those,
00:00
probably even get a new CISSP book.
00:00
Then we'll talk about the ISSEP domains
00:00
specifically to give you an introduction there,
00:00
because we've got five of those we have to go through
00:00
and that is the bulk of this course.
00:00
Then we're going to talk specifically about
00:00
Information System Security Engineer or ISSE Role,
00:00
so what jobs might you look at or
00:00
get if you hold the ISSEP concentration.
00:00
Our course objectives for
00:00
the Cybrary ISSEP Course are pretty straightforward.
00:00
We are going to work
00:00
together to discover the ISSEP domains,
00:00
we're going to look at
00:00
the skillsets that an ISSE
00:00
needs. This is really important.
00:00
I want you to be able to walk out of
00:00
here after spending a chunk
00:00
of your time going through this course,
00:00
and prepared for the exam
00:00
and knowing what to study for the exam,
00:00
but be having developed some of
00:00
those ISSE skills and knowing where to find
00:00
the information that you need to perform as an ISSE.
00:00
We're going to talk specifically about the ISSE process.
00:00
That was defined by NIST several years ago and it is
00:00
a great flow when you think about how an ISSE does
00:00
their job and where an ISSE
00:00
gets in and what are the things an ISSE does.
00:00
Obviously throughout the course we will be highlighting,
00:00
and specifically we have a module
00:00
on the NIST documentation,
00:00
which is a bulk of
00:00
the ISSE resources, although there's more.
00:00
We're going to touch on one,
00:00
the IETF, which if you've not heard of the IEFT,
00:00
we're going to talk about that a little bit later,
00:00
that is a great book.
00:00
It's old, but it is a great book
00:00
for an ISSE to learn and understand.
00:00
Then of course, obviously we
00:00
want to prep for the ISSEP exam.
00:00
If you're here and you want
00:00
to achieve that concentration,
00:00
ISSE is a tough one,
00:00
I hold that concentration and it was
00:00
a great learning experience to get to
00:00
that point where I felt comfortable
00:00
walking in the door for that exam,
00:00
and I hope that after
00:00
this course you will feel the same level of comfort.
00:00
Here's our course outline.
00:00
We're here in Module 1, and you're going to see
00:00
this diagram come back several times,
00:00
obviously 10 times [LAUGHTER] throughout the course.
00:00
The first five modules are focused
00:00
on the ISSEP domains and that's foundations,
00:00
risk management, planning and
00:00
design implementation and operations.
00:00
We're going to talk specifically in each of
00:00
those modules about the different pieces and parts,
00:00
and really those focus areas of
00:00
things you need to know in those modules.
00:00
Then module seven is the ISSE process,
00:00
so that's the information
00:00
system security engineering process and
00:00
that is really references a lot of what we do
00:00
out of NIST and it walks through the entire flow and
00:00
the products and documents and
00:00
everything you should know as an ISSE.
00:00
Now we're going to talk about
00:00
the software development lifecycle,
00:00
which are, excuse me, the system development life cycle,
00:00
not the software development life cycle.
00:00
This is an important distinction.
00:00
When we are doing systems engineering,
00:00
we tend to be more deliberate,
00:00
we tend to really focus on
00:00
the requirements, the standards,
00:00
the constraints, the cost, schedule performance,
00:00
what you're going to hear a lot about,
00:00
we tend to focus on that in SDLC.
00:00
Because if we're going to
00:00
engineer a complex system, we have to get it right.
00:00
Software is different and yes,
00:00
software runs the world and yes can you
00:00
apply ISSE process to software development?
00:00
A hundred percent correct, yes, you can.
00:00
But this is really focused on
00:00
the systems engineering aspect
00:00
of which software is only a small part.
00:00
We'll talk specifically about the key NIST standards.
00:00
That's the National Institute
00:00
of Standards and Technologies.
00:00
One of the great things that ISC2,
00:00
which is the organization that created
00:00
CISSP and the different concentrations,
00:00
is they look at the standards
00:00
that were out there and they didn't reinvent the wheel.
00:00
I appreciate that. I'm not a fan of
00:00
reinventing the wheel if you don't have to.
00:00
Then finally, we're going to talk
00:00
about the concentration insights
00:00
and that's really going to
00:00
be more focused on helping you to prepare for
00:00
the exam and what areas
00:00
you really need to focus on and study.
00:00
Of course, at the end of this,
00:00
you get your certificate of
00:00
completion. What we cover in this video?
00:00
We looked at the module objectives,
00:00
we looked at the course objectives and we covered
00:00
the course outline in
00:00
a little more detail. Hope to see you next time.
