Re: CISSP 8th Edition Book

Hello @KM


I wanted to pass along the following information that I received from our teams regarding your question: 


The CISSP Sybex Study Guide is designed to cover each of the eight CISSP Common Body Knowledge domains in sufficient depth to provide students with a clear understanding of the material.  The main body of the book comprises 21 chapters.  The domain/chapter breakdown is as follows:


Chapters 1, 2, 3, and 4:  Security and Risk Management

Chapter 5:  Asset Security

Chapter 6, 7, 8, 9, and 10:  Security Architecture and Engineering

Chapters 11 and 12:  Communication and Network Security

Chapters 13 and 14:  Identity and Access Management (IAM)

Chapter 15:  Security Assessment and Testing

Chapters 16, 17, 18, and 19:  Security Operations

Chapter 20 and 21:  Software Development


Students may view the table of contents and chapter introductions for a detailed list of domain topics covered in each chapter.
