Overview

 

Minnesota ISSA Chapter Members:
Your membership entitles you to reduced costs in obtaining your CISSP certification! This year, your chapter will reimburse you for your CISSP examination preparation studying textbook. Additionally, if you pass the examination within 9 months after the study group ends, your chapter will pay your membership dues for one year! If interested, please signup to join the 2017 CISSP Study Group for (ISC)2 “Common Body of Knowledge Examination.” The study group starts Jan 24, 2017.

Background:
The board of directors of both the Minnesota Chapter of ISSA and the Twin Cities Minnesota (ISC)2 Chapter agreed to sponsor a CISSP Study Group. “Our goal is to assist members of this group as they prepare for the (ISC)2 CISSP Common Body of Knowledge examination.” The targeted audience is anyone who wishes to pursue more knowledge of the 8 CISSP Domains through discussions with other security related professionals. At other locations across the country, this type of study group have assisted others in preparing for and passing the CISSP exam. Several members of the study group offered last year received their CISSP certification and have attributed their success to this type of study group.

Venue:
Each evening, the study group will review one of the 8 domains in the “Common Body of Knowledge” as defined by the International Information Systems Security Certification Consortium (http://www.isc2.org/). The domains will be presented via lecture by an area security professional (usually a CISSP-certified individual). Following the lecture, the floor will be opened for comments and questions on the subject matter of the evening. Due to space limitations, the study group will be limited to the first 30 who sign up and pay the refreshment/food fee ($100).

Limitations and disclaimer:
None of the sponsors; the Twin Cities Minnesota (ISC)2 Chapter and the Minnesota Chapter of ISSA, study group presenters, nor the State of Minnesota, guarantees any study group member success in passing the CISSP exam; what we offer is an attempt to assist the study group members with reinforcing their knowledge of the 8 CISSP CBK domains.

Schedule:
Meeting time is 6:30 – 9:00 pm every Tuesday night beginning January 24, 2017 and will continue to May 9, 2017. The sessions will be offered at offered at the Centennial Building on the State Capital Campus in St. Paul. Refreshments and dinner (pizza) will be served.
