The importance of Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP) training cannot be overstated as the Philippines strives to solidify its position in the global information technology arena.

Beyond enhancing individual expertise, cyber security training positively impacts these educators' students, the institutions they advise and the broader cybersecurity ecosystem.

The Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP) certification, recognised globally as a hallmark of excellence in the field of information security, provides a comprehensive framework for professionals to understand and address contemporary cybersecurity threats. Extending this knowledge to professors like Dr. Liwag creates a ripple effect.

The benefits of empowering educators with CISSP Training

CISSP training for educators goes beyond personal achievement; it becomes a catalyst for empowering them with the latest industry insights and best practices that they can share with students and the institutions they support.

Armed with cutting-edge knowledge, they can enrich their curriculum, infusing real-world scenarios and practical applications into the learning experience.

  • Fostering a Cyber Security Culture
    Students taught by ISC2-certified educators and exposed to CISSP-influenced courses gain theoretical knowledge and develop a proactive approach to cybersecurity challenges. This cultural shift sets the stage for a technically proficient workforce and deeply committed to securing digital landscapes.

  • Elevating Institutional Reputation
    Educational institutions benefit by association. Certified professors enhance the credibility of their respective institutions, attracting students seeking cutting-edge and industry-relevant education. This, in turn, contributes to an elevated institutional reputation and a competitive edge in the academic landscape.

  • Addressing Industry Demand
    As the demand for cyber security professionals continues to surge both nationally and globally, the Philippines can position itself as a hub for well-trained experts. CISSP-trained educators are pivotal in aligning academic programs with the industry's ever-evolving needs. This not only meets the demand for skilled professionals but also contributes to the growth of the national cybersecurity workforce.

  • Collaboration with Industry
    Dr. Liwag's experience highlights how CISSP-trained educators act as bridges between academic institutions and the cyber security industry. Their expertise facilitates collaboration, internships and research opportunities with industry players. This creates a relationship that benefits both academia and the private sector.

CISSP training for educators in the Philippines is a strategic investment in the nation's cyber security resilience and global competitiveness. As the Philippines navigates the complexities of the digital age, investing in education is a cornerstone in building a secure and prosperous future.

What is CISSP certification training?

Lumify Work offers a comprehensive Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP) training course designed to accelerate the careers of security practitioners, managers and executives. This five-day program aligns with the globally recognised Associate of ISC2 certification.

What is the course about?

CISSP focuses on the eight domains of the CISSP Common Body of Knowledge (CBK). This strategic approach prepares participants for the CISSP exam, validating their ability to design, implement and manage top-tier cybersecurity programs.

The certification boosts individual expertise and opens doors to exclusive resources, educational tools and peer-to-peer networking opportunities as members of ISC2, the world's leading cybersecurity and IT security professional organisation.

The course emphasises hands-on learning, providing practical insights into implementing and managing security programs within diverse organisational and governmental contexts.

Lumify Work is an ISC2 Preferred Official Training Partner, distinguishing itself as one of the select training providers in Australia, with campuses extending to New Zealand and the Philippines.

Who is it for?

The CISSP training is tailored for experienced security practitioners, managers, and executives seeking to validate their knowledge across security practices and principles.

Key positions that can benefit from this course include Chief Information Security Officers, Chief Information Officers, Directors of Security, IT Directors/Managers, Security Systems Engineers, Security Analysts, and various other roles within the cyber security domain.

What does the course cover?

The CISSP certification training delves deep into eight domains essential for exam preparation:

  • Security and Risk Management: Covers ethical considerations, security concepts, governance principles, legal and regulatory issues, risk management and more.

  • Asset Security: Focuses on identifying and classifying information and assets, resource provisioning, data lifecycle management and compliance requirements.

  • Security Architecture and Engineering: Explores secure design principles, security models, cryptographic solutions, and security capabilities of Information Systems (IS).

  • Communication and Network Security: Addresses secure design principles in network architectures, securing network components and implementing secure communication channels.

  • Identity and Access Management (IAM): Manages physical and logical access, identification, authentication, federated identity, authorization mechanisms and provisioning lifecycle.

  • Security Assessment and Testing: Encompasses assessment, test, and audit strategies, security control testing, security process data collection, and security audits.

  • Security Operations: Covers investigations, logging and monitoring, configuration management, incident management, resource protection, and disaster recovery.

  • Software Development Security: Integrates security into the Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC), applies security controls, assesses software security and defines secure coding guidelines.

What are the prerequisites?

Participants must have at least five years of experience working in IT Infrastructure and Cyber Security.

The CISSP certification exam mandates candidates to have cumulative, paid work experience in two or more of the eight CISSP CBK domains.

Alternatively, individuals lacking the required experience can become an Associate of ISC2 by passing the CISSP exam and accumulating the necessary work experience for full certification later.
