The (ISC)² CISSP (Certified Information Systems Security Professional) is a de facto certification for mid-level or senior cybersecurity professionals. It is known as the most difficult cybersecurity certifications to attain. Our instructors are practising cybersecurity consultants who provide up-to-date real-world examples from their experience.

Our course runs over five consecutive days and covers the 8 Domains of the (ISC)2 CISSP CBK. While other training providers provide “boot camp” environments and rush to train to the exam, Jellyfish is focused on knowledge transfer and to give you the knowledge needed to prepare for the exam as well as excel in your cybersecurity career.

As part of after-care, our instructors are available to assist you after the course to answer questions and provide guidance to further help you achieve your certification. And should you not achieve certification, you can resit the course for free.

Our (ISC)2 CISSP course is available at our training centre in The Shard, London and will run over five consecutive days. Lunch and refreshments will be provided throughout the week. We also offer private training at a location of your choice or via Virtual Classroom.
