We just finished our CBK (Common Body of Knowledge) seminar, a one week training covering ten domains of security knowlegde:
- Access Control Systems and Methodology
- Applications and Systems Development
- Security Business Continuity Planning (BCP) and Disaster Recovery Planning (DRP)
- Law, Investigation and Ethics
- Operations Security
- Physical Security
- Security Architecture and Models
- Security Management Practices
- Telecommunications and Network Security
Well, that was very intense, but we've learnt a lot! Even working in the security business for years, it's not posible to be an expert in every focus area.
