With the increasing threats of data breaches and leaks in our interconnected world, it’s clear that cybersecurity is more important (and visible) than ever. Cybersecurity has become a key area of job growth in the last few years. Advance your career today with a CISSP Certification.
A 2019 report from workforce research firm Burning Glass Technologies stated that demand for cybersecurity workers had grown three times faster than overall IT jobs. The high demand means that certified professionals can command premium salaries. In the Fredericksburg region alone over the next five years, this sector is expected to demand nearly 2000 jobs.
Continuing and Professional Studies at the University of Mary Washington offers high-quality and affordable preparation for the Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP) exam.
What is CISSP Certification?
The Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP) credential has been called the gold standard of cybersecurity certifications.

Taking the demanding CISSP exam allows you to test your skills against some of the industry’s highest standards. The CISSP shows employers that you have the experience and knowledge to lead in cybersecurity.
