Just wanted to know if there are any members out there who are considering doing the CCSP exam. I do believe this cert has the potential to be the most valuable accreditation for a security professional. Being aware of the digital/cloud security landscape is now a necessity for our profession and having the badge to prove it will provide tangible evidence of capability in this space. In my opinion ISCx2 will now need to sell the value of the badge and fully leverage the association with the cloud security alliance CSA. I've just done the exam, so happy to share my experience (without contravening our code of ethics) with anyone who is also considering doing it.
Be safe & secure!
My skype id is rootscan3. Time difference between India and Brazil is of 7 1/2 hours. I get up at 5:30 am Indian Standard Time which would be exactly 10 pm in Brazil so we can catch up on skype.
If you use WhatsApp then we can keep each other informed about our absence/late joining on certain days, let me know if you are okay (my cell# is (91 Country Code) 8412827058).
I am using the official book for ccsp and i go through videos on the internet and youtube. Let's catch up soon.
I sat the exam in October, just missed the mark. I'm supposed to retake on 1/23. I am not sure where I went wrong the first time, other than attempting while having the flu. Practice exam scoring is high, so I have no idea how to tweak my studies in preparation for the 23rd.
I took a second CCSP exam and I failed again. The ISC2 CCSP CBK book will not get you through the exam. I had about 35 questions relating to SAML and another 15 for WS-Federation. Out of the 125 questions on the exam, I would say 60 of them I could understand and read. The others made zero sense and the answers were worse! The entire exam was select the BEST answer or it would say select the GREATEST or GREAT answer.
Once again, this CCSP exam needs improved study guides and materials.
