ISACA CDPSE

ISACA has released a new Certification CDPSE 

 

https://www.isaca.org/credentialing/certified-data-privacy-solutions-engineer

 

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.

Re: ISACA CDPSE

Hi billclancy,

I have a question. Is work experience verification form for the CDPSE certification same as CISA and other cert. in terms of content? Does ISACA demand other type of documents for proving work experience?

Re: ISACA CDPSE

Its a little different in that you need to go back through 5 years of supervisors to get sign offs. Since, I work as a consultant, currently with six, no less, supervising managers at any time and changes every 6 months I said thanks but no thanks. If the cert becomes worthwhile in the market I would be happy to sit for the exam and walk through the front door rather than grandfather in.

Re: ISACA CDPSE

I feel your pain, and I had to wade through a pile of old supervisors who really had no vested interest in helping me get another cert...but I persevered, and got'er done! Better than studying, sitting for the exam, and still doing the paperwork.

Rarely does sitting for an exam mean more than an hour of time in the chair. As far as studying goes. I do that every evening anyhow. Learning is not difficult for me.
