Syam,

Glad you are on track to certification, and congratulations on surviving the exam.

@AndreaMoore  has already started the process to have Member Support send you the Endorsement Process instructions for full certification. I am writing this reply for the benefit of others who may see the topic and read the thread.

 

As we have discussed several times on the forum, there is no such thing as CISSP Associate.  The proper term is Associate of (ISC)2, which is available to anyone who has passed any one of the many (ISC)2 certification exams but does not, yet, have sufficient experience for certification. The reason for the name is because (ISC)2 jealously guards the certification names (especially CISSP), and forbids anyone from even using the term unless certified. They are concerned that resumes with language like "passed CISSP Exam" or "CISSP Associate" will be misread and the person perceived as being certified. Further, if the usage is determined to be intentionally misleading, that person can be adjudged as having violated the Code of Ethics and be barred form ever becoming certified by (ISC)2.

 

Another subtlety: Once you have any (ISC) certification, you are a full member, and the Associate status no longer applies as you seek additional certifications. Just claim the certification you hold, and describe experience in the sub field without naming the expected new certification until you are certified (e.g.. "with added experience in cloud security"). Plus, once a certified (ISC)2 member you can self-endorse for additional certifications.

 

Congrats, again, and good luck!

 

Craig
