CISSP Concentrations Required & Enforced?

If you are in a job that actually enforces a requirement for any of the CISSP Concentrations (-ISSEP, -ISSAP, -ISSMP), please report that in this thread. I am very curious about whether that is actually being enforced anywhere, and if so for which concentrations.

Under DoD 8140/8570, there are provisions to require one of them for particular positions, but as far as I can tell in my experience, that was never actually enforced, either for government employees or for contractors. Likewise, when ISSEP was created, NSA had planned to require CISSP-ISSEP for a number of positions, but I never heard of actual enforcement.

 

I worked as a contractor in a couple of areas for DoD that my job description should have mandated a CISSP-ISEEP, but the department never specified the position to that level, only to an IAM-3, so CISSP was sufficient.

 

Obviously, you may need to give minimal info about your job, but please give as much detail as you can safely if you do have an enforced requirement.

Thanks, all.

Re: CISSP Concentrations Required & Enforced?

I can vouch for NSA enforcement of ISSEP needed for certain levels on certain contracts.
