Abstract

This paper explores whether a relationship exists between the Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP) certification and digital forensics. The key findings show that the CISSP Common Body of Knowledge (CBK) covers a wide spectrum of information security practices, processes, and procedures and that the CISSP certification can provide a basic introduction to digital forensic processes and concepts from an incident response perspective. However, the CISSP certification does not bestow an in depth knowledge of digital forensic processes upon those who attain this certification. The CISSP CBK therefore does not support digital forensic processes beyond providing a basic understanding of what digital forensics is and the general concepts found within the digital forensic realm.
