If you are not planning on taking the CISSP exam, but you work in Information Security, then make this book part of your required reading. It is an invaluable tool to any security practitioner. Shon Harris has updated both the content and the layout of this newest edition. Key terms are defined in separate attention-grabbing boxes. This is a huge help when you are stuck on a difficult concept that you want to review, such as the concepts that make up "The Common Criteria", or the seemingly infinite terms associated with the Telecommunications and Network Security Domain.

If you are a person who uses a highlighter, or if you annotate passages on an e-reader, these attention boxes are fantastic for easily isolating the important details.

The CISSP exam is peppered with many "scenario-based" questions, and Shon has updated her end-of-chapter quizzes to include these types of questions.

The quizzes provided on the disc included with the book are comprehensive across each domain. The questions offered on the disc will test your true knowledge of the subjects.

The Practice Exam book is the perfect companion for the main book, offering detailed explanations of why one answer is "The Best" choice for a particular question. The folks who compose the questions for the CISSP exam tend to lean towards the "sinister", attempting to trip you up with subtle and sometimes vague wording. Shon writes her questions in a similar style, making you really think about the material to derive the best answer rather than simply memorizing passages from the book.

Her questions and the answer choices will get you into the correct mindset to pass the exam. Do not be discouraged by the size of the book; when you are taking the test and are presented with a particularly tricky question, you will be thankful for all the detail that is offered in this book. This is simply the best book on the market for not only understanding Information Security on a practical and professional level, but also for passing the CISSP exam.

Shon not only presents the topics needed to pass the exam, but she also adds a creative story line which separates her from all other CISSP books. This book series now in the 6th edition has been used by many as the official courseware for the class. There are several real world scenarios that are discussed and relevant practice test questions. Some choose to read this book cover-to-cover, others research the topics they are less fluent with.

It is definitively one of the top two books for anyone who is serious about becoming a CISSP and passing the exam on the first trial. ISC2 has not updated their own book yet. They have only 4 chapters available in IBook format. ISC2 needs to rethink their strategy. Whalen on Nov 10, I have had the 5th Edition of this book and therefore that version PDF for quite some time now, but only recently have had the time to begin preparing for the exam.

Information Security made easy and yummy! By Donald R Glass on Jan 16, Over my years teaching information security and working on the field I had the opportunity to consult, read and learn from a variety of sources. From specialized websites, to conference transcripts, to magazine articles, to books. The information you need is out there and there are a plethora of places where you can get the content around.

But not all the content is the same. When it comes to information security and in particular the CISSP exam the amount of information that a potential exam candidate and the new infosec professional has to understand is huge. Moving from end to end of several spectrum, going into the details of complex cryptography algorithms that involves mathematical theories that very few of us can grasp to the understanding of purely managerial concerns that seems abstract in nature but have very clear repercussions on the day to day like risk management or the concepts of confidentiality, privacy or integrity; the information security field relates to one too many disciplines and understanding those disciplines and their relation to one another is crucial for the success of the CISSP exam candidate and the infosec professional.

This book makes Information Security a fun and digestible read. Shon tackles complex issues with clear and to the point analogies that allows the reader to "click" into the new concept, it creates the moment of "Ohhhh I now get it!

And for the experienced infosec professional this book gives him or her proven ways to explain to those that are outside of our field how things work and how they should work. I highly recommend this book not only as an exam preparation material but also as a reference piece over those areas and subjects that we may have to re-learn as we grow in our information security careers.

Congratulations Shon, you did it again. They will respond with the code. Shon Harris hits a home run! Again By Shaun L. The delivery of the information through her text makes learning easy. After reading this guide, you may cease to ignore the world around you, as you realize just how deeply integrated many of our technologies are and how dependent they are on security. Once equipped, this will enable you to make great strides in influence and contribution to your day to day security efforts and enterprise strategy.

Finally this book comes out mid-October. I had the 5th edition, which came with a cd with PDFs on it. I had to call the McGraw Hill people to get them to email me a link to download. The point was to put the PDFs on my tablet and phone so I can study whenever and wherever. But this is garbage. I much rather would have paid to download the. What a rip! Wish I would have know this before. Shon Harris. Good but not a great read. Some of the topics seem to be repeatedly covered to the point of redundant.

The author throws in comments that are meant to be humorous in an effort to break up the reading a bit. They rarely hit their mark, a little more time spend on those good have gone a long ways. Everything you need to know for exam.

Very thorough and easy to comprehend. Layout can be used from cover to cover or by topic. The CD practice exams identify where you need to focus your study. Great book. Great book!

By Gha-vo on May 29, Where to begin? I did not use the CD but pounded the heck on the practice exam. Not as "reference book" as the CBK but it will help you understand the course material. There are some typos but every tech book has typos.

Coming from a very technical background I had difficulty in the "management" domains. The book helped me in understanding those parts. ISC2 changed the exam January of with a bunch of drag and drops and more scenario based questions. You have to know the material and how it applies to the situation.

Unfortunately, this book does not prepare you for that. You just have to know the material and how it applies. Good luck. Not what you need to pass. Ms Harris spends way too much time reiterating the same concepts, and over explaining relatively simple concepts with what is undoubtedly page filers. The more important concepts, such as encryption standards and authentication is inadequately covered to help you on the exam. I studied 4 books, including this one and the CBK and found this book to be the least helpful towards the exam.

Oddly, her training videos, which are very costly cover topics not found in this book, which is very odd considering that this is supposed to be the definitive study guide. I can only assume this is to encourage you to purchase the much more costly training videos. Of course being able to correct errors in this book assured me that I was ready to take the exam.

For those taking the exam, I suggest keeping this as a cram study guide, for after you learn the subject matter elsewhere, but it is worthless in teaching you the topics needed to pass. My suggestions, 1.

Repeat step 1, but this time read your highlights 3. Read the Sybex official guide, and highlight sections you are still unsure and the reread only highlighted sections.

Skim through this book, and read references to the items you highlighted from the prior two books, for a different perspective. Never study for longer than 2 hours. Typically after the first hour, you start to retain less and less information. Take frequent breaks. This will keep the information fresh and in long term memory. Repeatedly taking practice exams. This will not help you.

CISSP All-in-One Exam Guide, Eighth Edition

These two sections from chapter 1 give a brief history of the CISSP exam, and offer advice for those preparing to take the test. CISSP: A Brief History Historically, the field of computer and information security has not been a structured and disciplined profession; rather, the field has lacked many well-defined professional objectives and thus has often been misperceived. In the mids, members of the computer security profession recognized that they needed a certification program that would give their profession structure and provide ways for security professionals to demonstrate competence and to present evidence of their qualifications. Establishing such a program would help the credibility of the security profession as a whole and the individuals who comprise it. As a voluntary joint effort, these organizations developed the necessary components to offer a full-fledged security certification for interested professionals. ISC 2 was formed in mid as a nonprofit corporation to develop a security certification program for information systems security practitioners. The certification was designed to measure professional competence and to help companies in their selection of security professionals and personnel.
