Information Security and Risk Management quiz overview

Information Security and Risk Management  domain for the CISSP quiz overview

These are the sub-domains within the domain.

  • Governance and Project Management
  • Paperwork of Governance and Metrics
  • Risk Assessment
  • Risk Management

There is too much information on each one of these topics for you to be technically adept in every sub-domain and domain of the CISSP. Your ultimate goal is to know the executive summary level of detail on the core knowledge. You should know this information in enough detail to be able to ask questions of the technical people on your staff. These questions should relate to the security aspects and not the implementation details. It is necessary to know enough technical details to be able to make management decisions about security and technology. The questions in this section should reveal your lack of security knowledge. These questions or answers are not detailed enough to solve a real world problem. You should not study the question; it will not be on your exam. You SHOULD study the core concept discussed in the question and be able to apply generic security measures. You  should know the threats and controls to each technology.
