THE RIGHT MEDICINE FOR INFORMATION SECURITY TRAINING
Brooklyn, New York, April 22, 2002---With the demand for qualified
information security experts far outnumbering the supply, the designation of
CISSP® ---Certified Information Systems Security Professional---is a hot
commodity. This elite certification is internationally recognized as the
hallmark of a qualified information security pro.
It has been estimated that there will be a need for over 100,000 qualified
information security professionals within the next few years, but at present
there are fewer than 10,000 who have achieved the status of CISSP®.
Moreover, passing the certification exam is often looked upon as an ordeal,
with many weeks, and sometimes months, of intensive study.
Fortunately, an innovative method for mastering the exam has been developed
Ben Weinstock, PT, CISSP. By applying his Infosec Training Immersion SystemT
to the curriculum of the CISSP® exam-called the "Common Body of Knowledge,"
or CBK---learning is accelerated. "My two-day course provides a turnkey
solution. This is not an 'exam cram,' as the complete CBK is easily covered
in a relaxed, organized manner. Proficiency is facilitated through valuable
test taking strategies and proven active learning methods," reports
Recent attendees have nothing but high praise. According to Professor
Stephen Tucker of Baruch College, a PhD candidate specializing in computer
security, the course "exceeded my expectations and has allowed me to
streamline my studying with a clear overall view." These sentiments were
echoed by prominent New York City attorney Douglass Seidman. "Weinstock has
a gift for demystifying the complex and has saved me an immense amount of
time that I would have needed to prepare. This course provides all of the
tools necessary to easily pass the exam."
The success of the Infosec Training Immersion SystemT stems from Weinstock's
unique background: in addition to being a CISSP, he is a licensed physical
therapist. According to Weinstock, "By applying the basic model of
understanding health, diseases, and therapeutic treatments to the field of
information security, all of the elements of the CBK logically fall into
place. Being an information security professional is more than simply
remembering hundreds of definitions, passing an exam, or accumulating
certifications. The key to success is in learning the normal and abnormal
states of information security, and in applying the proper countermeasures.
I teach attendees how to think like security diagnosticians."
Weinstock has upcoming courses in New York City and in Washington, D.C.
Arrangements can also be made to have the course brought onsite to a
corporate, governmental, or educational facility. Visit the company's
