The (ISC)2 Systems Security Certified Practitioner (SSCP) certification is a well-known vendor-neutral global IT security certification. The SSCP is designed to show that holders have the technical skills to implement, monitor, and administer IT infrastructure using information security policies and procedures.
This comprehensive Official Study Guide—the only study guide officially approved by (ISC)2—covers all objectives of the seven SSCP domains.
If you’re an information security professional or student of cybersecurity looking to tackle one or more of the seven domains of the SSCP, this guide gets you prepared to pass the exam and enter the information security workforce with confidence.

This book is therefore dedicated to investigating and exploring the potential security issues of NFV. It contains three major elements: a thorough overview of the NFV framework and architecture, a comprehensive threat analysis aiming to establish a layer-specific threat taxonomy for NFV enabled networking services, and a series of comparative studies of security best practices in traditional networking scenarios and in NFV, ultimately leading to a set of recommendations on security countermeasures in NFV.
This book is primarily intended for engineers, engineering students and researchers and those with an interest in the field of networks and telecommunications (architectures, protocols, services) in general, and particularly software-defined network (SDN) and network functions virtualization (NFV)-based security services.Extensively studies security issues in NFVPresents a basis or guideline for both academia researchers and industry practitioners to work together to achieve secure and dependable lifecycle management of NFV based network services
All new for 2019 and beyond, this is the authoritative common body of knowledge (CBK) from (ISC)2 for information security professionals charged with designing, engineering, implementing, and managing the overall information security program to protect organizations from increasingly sophisticated attacks. Vendor neutral and backed by (ISC)2, the CISSP credential meets the stringent requirements of ISO/IEC Standard 17024.
This CBK covers the new eight domains of CISSP with the necessary depth to apply them to the daily practice of information security. Written by a team of subject matter experts, this comprehensive reference covers all of the more than 300 CISSP objectives and sub-objectives in a structured format with:
• Common and good practices for each objective
• Common vocabulary and definitions
• References to widely accepted computing standards
• Highlights of successful approaches through case studies
Whether youve earned your CISSP credential or are looking for a valuable resource to help advance your security career, this comprehensive guide offers everything you need to apply the knowledge of the most recognized body of influence in information security.
After reading this book, you should be able to use these tools to do some testing and even working on penetration projects. You just need to remember not to use these techniques in a production environment without having a formal approval.
