Is it worth earning both the ISSAP and ISSEP? I know this is subjective but wanted to get my fellow security professional opinions on if it is worth having both certifications.
Personally, I think it is a good learning opportunity. However, CISSP remains the gold standard credential and anytime I trawl Linkedin etc for opportunities, the CISSP concentrations rarely get called out as required.
Conversely, I've seen entry level roles looking for CISSP !
If you've got the interest in pursuing it - go for it and tell us how you found it !
Thanks for the response @CDNI and I do not disagree. I know that CISSP gets you in the door and is the standard. I'm looking at it from an even more advanced career field. I've been working as a security engineer and I think there is expectation that security engineers should also be able to implement security architect designs, which I think just depends on the organization and what they expect from the role.
Since your focus is Security Engineering, combining CISSP, CSSLP, and ISSEP should be good enough for personal development.
@BBT Thank you for the response and you gave me something to think about. I see that the CBK for the CSSLP is from 2013. Do you know if there are any plans for ISC2 to produce an updated CBK? Again, thank you.
