This lesson covers the exam to obtain the CISSP certification. The exam consists of 250 questions, 25 of which are 'beta' and not graded. Examinees are provided with materials such as a calculator, a wipe board and a pen. Important to remember is questions are weighted and that security transcends technology. When preparing for the exam, it is important to remember the CISSP mindset. Essentially, your role is that of a Risk Advisor and it is not your job to fix problems, remember to incorporate security into a design rather than adding it on at a later date and finally, remember a layered defense is the strongest defense.
