    The Official (ISC)2® Guide to the CISSP®-ISSEP® CBK® provides an inclusive analysis of all of the topics covered on the newly created CISSP-ISSEP Common Body of Knowledge. The first fully comprehensive guide to the CISSP-ISSEP CBK, this book promotes understanding of the four ISSEP domains: Information Systems Security Engineering (ISSE); Certification and Accreditation; Technical Management; and an Introduction to United States Government Information Assurance Regulations.

    This volume explains ISSE by comparing it to a traditional Systems Engineering model, enabling you to see the correlation of how security fits into the design and development process for information systems. It also details key points of more than 50 U.S. government policies and procedures that need to be understood in order to understand the CBK and protect U.S. government information.
