Yup another certification, which may or may not turn out to be a big deal. The interesting thing is, they are allowing "Early adoption". People who can show 5 years of experience in the domain areas of the cert, can be awarded the certification without testing! If you have a CISA, CISM, CRISC or CGEIT, it counts for 2 of the 5 year requirement. There is a hefty fee involved, but if you don't pass muster, they refund all but $50.
I jumped all the hoops, and was awarded the cert on June 1. I work in the DOD, where privacy is a big issue, so it may serve me well.
