CISSP Domain 1: Security and Risk Management

The first domain according to the CISSP exam outline I am approaching during my CISSP exam preparation study is called ‘Security and Risk Management”. 

My initial thoughts on this chapter: ‘Ufff, It sounds a too boring, I am actually rather interested into some techie stuff and Keep my hands engaged in configuration, troubleshooting’. But in reality, It turns out that chapter is written very nicely and systemically. It contains nice explanation about Important security concepts. This builds the framework for other chapters and respective domains. Also, Domain 1 consists of First 4 chapters of CISSP official study guide.
