By: Mike Chapple, David Seidl

Overview of this book

The SSCP certification is offered by the International Information System Security Certification Consortium (ISC)2. The SSCP is the entry-level credential in this series. With SSCP certification, you’ll meet the requirements of the Department of Defense for entry-level Information Assurance Technical (IAT I) roles, positioning you for a successful career in cybersecurity. This book's first seven chapters cover each of the seven domains on the SSCP exam with sixty or more questions per domain, so you can focus your study efforts exactly where you need more review. The book also contains two complete practice exams that you can use as time trials to assess your readiness for the SSCP and a future in the field of information assurance. By the end of the book, you would have strengthened your weak areas and reinforced your learning to ace the test and earn the certification.

Recertification Requirements

Once you’ve earned your SSCP credential, you’ll need to maintain your certification by paying maintenance fees and participating in continuing professional education (CPE). As long as you maintain your certification in good standing, you will not need to retake the SSCP exam. Currently, the annual maintenance fees for the SSCP credential are $85 per year.

The SSCP CPE requirement mandates earning at least 20 CPE credits each year toward the 60-credit three-year requirement. (ISC)2 provides an online portal where certificants may submit CPE completion for review and approval. The portal also tracks annual maintenance fee payments and progress toward recertification.
