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 by
Ben Weinstock, PT, CISSP. By applying his Infosec Training Immersion System™ 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 Weinstock.

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 System™ 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 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 Website at www.infosecweekend.com for course dates and registration information.
