CSSLP Domain Changes Effective September 15, 2023

Hello all!

 

On September 15, 2023, (ISC)² will refresh the CSSLP credential exam. These updates are the result of the Job Task Analysis (JTA), which is an analysis of the current content of the credential evaluated by (ISC)² members on a triennial cycle.  

 

For candidates with an exam scheduled on or after September 15, 2023, the exam will be based on the new exam outline.  

 

The domain weights for the CSSLP will change as noted in the chart below:
