Endorsements made here!

Hello, my name is Paul and I am a Serial Endorsement processor.

 

How did I get that way, well if I hear someone say, "I just passed my first (ISC)2 test!" I usually reply with, "Congratulations, who is endorsing you?". 

 

If they are still looking for someone, I give them my name and email address and tell them to find this post.  https://community.isc2.org/t5/Certifications/Endorsement-Process-Observations/m-p/11333

 

It is an easy process and I try to let them know that when we are done, one still needs to wait for the process the get completed by (ISC)2.

 

Have you endorsed anyone yet?

Re: Endorsements made here!

I've performed a few endorsements over the years, but have to admit that these days, unless I know the person's work history well or someone I trust is able to vouch for them, I would tend to steer them towards ISC2 acting as their endorser rather than myself as I don't have the time (or the patience) to do the required level of verification.

Yes, but only when I know them personally or have a professional relationship that allows me to complete due diligence on verifying their experience claims on the submitted resume.

 

I would not, and suggest no member, endorse a stranger who announces completion of an (ISC) certification exam, unless prepared to dig deeply to verify the claimed experience. (Many years ago i did not endorse a co-worker i did not know personally whose resume claimed a bogus diploma-mill degree. Regrettably, he convinced some other person to complete his endorsement.)

Re: Endorsements made here!

So, is this sort of like getting a licence to perform marriages?

Oh, no. My license for that is from the Universal Life Church of Modesto California.

 

Getting ordained by the ULC is much easier (and less expensive) than getting certified by (ISC)2.

Re: Endorsements made here!

Most of the endorsements I have made are people I know and mentor.  San Antonio has a large number of people that transition from military active duty to the private sector.   

 

Two people I endorsed were transitioning from the military, held Top Secret / Sensitive Compartmented Information (TS/SCI) security clearance, worked in security roles during their time in the military and were both honorably discharged according to the reviewed paperwork. 


Normally anyone that has a DoD role which requires TS/SCI and has been in the role for five years or more will easily be able to satisfy the two domain requirement. 

 

Most would qualify for two or more of the following Domains depending on their roles:

Domain 1 Security and Risk Management

Domain 2 Asset Security

Domain 4 Communication and Network Security

Domain 7 Security Operations

 

They were both working at companies that hire people that transition from the Department of Defense which seek out people that have TS/SCI and a CISSP.  Generally, half of the CISSP job openings in San Antonio, TX require TS/SCI.  

 

So when you do endorse people, do your due diligence and stand by your endorsements.
