Start with a Solid Foundation to Secure Your CISSP!

The Effective CISSP: Security and Risk Management is for CISSP aspirants and those who are interested in information security or confused by cybersecurity buzzwords and jargon. It is a supplement, not a replacement, to the CISSP study guides that CISSP aspirants have used as their primary source. It introduces core concepts, not all topics, of Domain One in the CISSP CBK – Security and Risk Management. It helps CISSP aspirants build a conceptual security model or blueprint so that they can proceed to read other materials, learn confidently and with less frustration, and pass the CISSP exam accordingly. Moreover, this book is also beneficial for ISSMP, CISM, and other cybersecurity certifications.

This book proposes an integral conceptual security model by integrating ISO 31000, NIST FARM Risk Framework, and PMI Organizational Project Management (OPM) Framework to provide a holistic view for CISSP aspirants. It introduces two overarching models as the guidance for the first CISSP Domain: Wentz’s Risk and Governance Model.

  • Wentz’s Risk Model is based on the concept of neutral risk and integrates the Peacock Model, the Onion Model, and the Protection Ring Model derived from the NIST Generic Risk Model.
  • Wentz’s Governance Model is derived from the integral discipline of governance, risk management, and compliance.

There are six chapters in this book organized structurally and sequenced logically. If you are new to CISSP, read them in sequence; if you are eager to learn anything and have a bird view from one thousand feet high, the author highly suggests keeping an eye on Chapter 2 Security and Risk Management.

This book, as both a tutorial and reference, deserves space on your bookshelf.
