The SSCP Certification Course is a comprehensive training programme designed to prepare individuals to become Systems Security Certified Practitioners. The course covers the essential skills and concepts needed to pass the SSCP certification exam, which assesses the knowledge and abilities of IT professionals in the domains of systems security.

With a focus on data security and security vulnerabilities, this course covers topics such as access control, security operations, incident response, cryptography, and network security. It also delves into the security issues and solutions associated with cloud computing, hybrid clouds, and private clouds.

As companies increasingly rely on data centres, interactive application security testing (IAST), and dynamic application security testing (DAST), professionals need to have a deep understanding of software security and common vulnerabilities. With this training, IT professionals can gain the visibility and control necessary to protect their data and applications, as well as their business logic and source code.

To qualify for this course, individuals should have at least one year of full-time work experience in one of the domains covered in the SSCP exam. Upon completing this course, individuals will be prepared to take the SSCP certification exam, which is included in the course tuition. With the knowledge gained from this training, professionals can help prevent data breaches and ensure their organisations' security.

Passing the SSCP Certification Exam meets U.S. DoD Directive 8140/8570.01 Technical (IAT) Level-I, Technical (IAT) Level-II, and CSSP Infrastructure requirements.
