On July 1, 2017 (ISC)² released a new CBK for the CISSP-ISSAP concentration that changed many of the domains.
When should candidates that would like to pursue this concentration expect updated books and courses offered that cover the new common body of knowledge?
Inquiring minds what to know.
P.S. Now that I have seen the top of the CISSP and CCSP mountains, I am looking for the next one to climb.
No, the ISSAP exam was updated in July of 2017 (we have details about that update on our website) so there is not another update coming this year. The 2nd edition of the ISSAP CBK is still the most comprehensive resource to use in preparation. If you are looking for a resource list, we have that online here - https://www.isc2.org/Certifications/References
I hope this helps!
So the 2nd edition does not reflect the current test. I took and as much I hate to say it I missed the mark. However what threw me for a loop was, as in all failure cases, the prinout identifies the the Domains you are weakest to strongest in (top to bottom) and not one domain name matched the 2nd Edition book. No wonder why I asked myself where they came up with some of these questions.
I wanted to supply an update on this. The new exam for the CISSP-ISSAP went into effect on July 1, 2017. At that time, we decided not to update the book as we believe it was (and still is) a comprehensive resource that is relevant in preparing for the ISSAP. I did receive an update that the new training course should be available towards the end of June 2018.
You can find more information about the changes in this FAQ, including the update of the domain names and the weights for those domains. Please note, in the FAQ the date for the new training course is (at the time of this post) still stating Q4 of 2017. I have put in a request to have the new date of June 2018 updated there.
