Re: CISSP advise

There are entry levels for you to take, so no worries if you pass the exam. Check out the information on the https://www.isc2.org/Certifications/Associate page. Sounds like just the thing.

By the way, "bonne chance" and "meilleurs voeux". 😉

By the way,

Re: CISSP advise

How to start preparing depends upon individuals. A few pointer that will help you;

1. Start studying the domain that you have more familiarity/knowledge.

2. Use a study guide which you find easy to understand about the CISSP domains.

3. Videos will be of great help to understand complex topics.

4. Take some practice exams to see how well you understand the topic and the questions.

5. Team up with folks preparing for CISSP so that you can discuss your doubts and share what you know well.

 

Good Luck.

Re: CISSP advise

To be honest if you don't have the relevant experience you might be better off looking to do another more suitable certification first. You mentioned that you don't have the requisite 5 years (or 4 when a year is waived). What experience do you have? You might find the page I wrote about my decision to become certified helpful and can always consider the Associate route. Good luck.
