$3000 cyber security course for free

$3000-cyber-security-course-for-freeIT Masters and Charles Sturt University are offering, free, a six week online course designed to prepare students for the Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP) Security Certification that is comparable to other online courses that can cost up to $3800.

CISSP is an independent information security certification governed by the International Information Systems Security Certification Consortium (ISC)2. With over 88,000 holding the CISSP certification world wide, it is the cyber security industries most popular certification.

The IT Masters’ course will run over six weeks from Wednesday 17 July with lectures via weekly 90 minute webinars from 12:30 -14:00 hours AEST each Wednesday. In addition, students will be asked to do a total of 10-12 hours of study between webinars.

A range of reference materials will be made available online but it recommended that students purchase the Official (ISC)2 Guide to the CISSP CBK ($60 at Amazon). The course will culminate in a CISSP certification practice exam: a timed open book exam that students take at their own computer. Students completing the course and gaining their CISSP certification will gain a credit towards the Master of IS Security or Master of Management (IT- Security) degrees at Charles Study University.

IT Masters CEO, Martin Hale, said that, on completion of the course, some students would be ready to take the CISSP Certification exam, but most would need to do further study. “The CISSP certification exam is one of the toughest in the industry which why it is so highly regarded by employers.  250 questions over six hours and you need to get at least 70% to pass so you really need to make sure you are prepared” said Martin.

The webinars will be presented by Dr Craig Wright, co-author of the official (ISC)2 Guide to the CISSP-ISSMP CBK. A cyber security industry veteran with 23 years’ experience, Craig also sits on the SANS Technology Institute board and is a beta tester for GIAC exams. He has appeared on numerous occasions as an digital forensics expert witness in cyber security law suites and has authored over 100 publications on cyber security.

  • security professionals who are interested in understanding the concepts covered in the CISSP exam;
  • managers who might not want to achieve CISSP certification but want to understand the critical areas of network and system, security;
  • network administrators who want to understand the pragmatic applications of the CISSP 10 domains of knowledge;
  • security professionals and managers looking for practical ways to apply the CISSP 10 domains of knowledge in the current job.
