FRSecure has a goal of changing a broken industry. There are many ways to accomplish this objective, such as setting high assessment standards, using proprietary reporting methods that are easy to understand, and hiring expert talent, just to name a few. One unique approach we use at FRSecure to bring about change is our Certified Information Systems Security (CISSP) Mentor Program. By design, this program is provided at no cost to any participants. It is meant to help those with an interest in the information security industry, to prepare for the CISSP certification exam.

There is no cost for the classes within the mentor program; however, students will need to purchase the textbook and pay to take the CISSP exam.
