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.

Using This Book to Practice

This book is composed of 9 chapters. Each of the first seven chapters covers a domain, with a variety of questions that can help you test your knowledge of real-world, scenario, and best practices–based security knowledge. The final two chapters are complete practice exams that can serve as timed practice tests to help determine if you’re ready for the SSCP exam.

We recommend taking the first practice exam to help identify where you may need to spend more study time, and then using the domain-specific chapters to test your domain knowledge where it is weak. Once you’re ready, take the second practice exam to make sure you’ve covered all of the material and are ready to attempt the SSCP exam.
