Co-author Lawrence Miller and I completed this latest revision early in 2022. This revision covers the new CISSP Common Body of Knowledge that was updated in 2021. In addition to updates reflecting changes in the CBK, numerous other changes were made, reflecting advances and changes in cybersecurity practices, risks, threats, and regulations.
The publication of this 7th edition is a celebration of TWENTY YEARS of CISSP For Dummies. Larry and I wrote the first edition of CISSP For Dummies in 2002.
CISSP For Dummies is the only CISSP study guide approved by (ISC)2, the organization that manages the CISSP certification worldwide. This is a testimony to the quality and completeness that only CISSP For Dummies provides to security professionals who aspire to earn this prestigious certification.
This announcement would be incomplete without a grateful shoutout to Clément Dupuis, founder of CCCure, the well-known training organization for technology professionals. Clément passed in 2021, but not before providing valuable research material to Larry and me as we created this edition of the book.
