I'm currently studying for CISSP and have an Degree in Computer Science, and a postgraduate diploma in cyber security.
My question is, can the postgraduate diploma be used to waive the one year of required work experience?
If I do pass the exam I will apply to be an associate.
I currently have 2 years work experience (within the domains). So if I am able to waive a years work experience that totals to 3 years and I only need to get 2 years more experience within the domains to be certified?
Here is a link to the experience requirements for CISSP. You can substitute a maximum of one year work experience if you hold a four-year college degree or regional equivalent or an advanced degree in information security from the U.S. National Center of Academic Excellence in Information Assurance Education (CAE/IAE).
Good luck on your exam!
thanks for your reply. I did look at that page previously, but it only mentions USA. I'm based in the UK. a postgraduate diploma is basically a masters without doing the research component at the end of the years study. Would this be still applicable?
I answered this question on another forum but I'll answer it here as well for the sake of completeness.
The (bachelor's) degree in computer science mentioned in the original post is the UK regional equivalent of the four-year (bachelor's) degree Andrea mentioned.
Therefore, there would be no need to include the postgraduate diploma in an endorsement application as the bachelor's degree is enough to waive a year of experience.
