Re: CISSP CERTIFICATION

If you don't have a degree but you've earned any ISC2 CERTIFICATION stated, do you qualify for CISSP CERTIFICATION?

Re: CISSP CERTIFICATION

The subject matter is immense and I do think a good level of IT expertise and experience would be essential.

 

I've been working in IT for 13 years plus in a variety of roles, and started CISSP in August. I thought it would be straight forward - i.e a weeks external training course, a couple of weeks study and bang an exam! How wrong I was ! 

Sensibly my exam is booked for early December, so that will be 3-4 months after starting the course. I have also been working in IT security tyoe role for the last 18 months. I'm studying really hard now , and only just getting to the stage where I think early December might be achievable. Up until recently I have been expecting to pay to reschedule the exam.

Only bit of advice I'd give would be to not bother with an external training course. There's too much content to cover effectively in a week. I think I'd have achieved more sat at home studying on my own for a week.

Good luck!
