i have a total of 12 years of IT experience, out of which 8 years in enterprise security solutions, now our organisation is moving to the cloud, due to which all our tasks are cloud based solutions, so far, i have not done any certifications , i came across CCSP, aand all the internet articles, says that one need to get CISSP, is it really needed first to become CCSP? am planning to take CCSP for the very first time, is it recommended ? please help!
CISSP is not “needed” to take the CCSP exam, but I think I know what they mean.
CISSP is more known to the public and a lot of content will be in the CCSP exam. Getting CISSP first and then CCSP is a common track to get certified.
To get CISSP first before CCSP depends on what you want to do with this. Getting a job I think CISSP would be best to take first. If your company is in a transition to the cloud and you’re the security officer? I would say CCSP first.
If you have the time and money to take the CISSP exam after you passed CISSP is always a good idea if you ask me.
So it’s up to you. I would say you won’t regret getting either one.
