Effective April 15, 2018

Amidst the changes in technology and the evolving threat landscape occurring in information security, the CISSP exam is continuously updated to stay relevant. Effective 15 April 2018, the CISSP exam will be based on a new exam blueprint.

Refreshed content has been added to the CISSP to reflect the most current topics in information security. The result of these enhancements is an exam that most accurately reflects the competence required from an information security professional.

As a result of the content refresh, we have updated some of the domain names to describe the topics accurately.
