Whats a great compliment to the CISSP?

With there being a plethora of security based certifications, which would you say would compliment the CISSP best?

Re: Whats a great compliment to the CISSP?

I know this is not on your list but with the big push right now for everything to go to "The Cloud" you may want to consider the CCSP. Cloud security seams to be the big thing right now, so it might be the best compliment to the CISSP right now.

 

CCSP will probably be the easiest for you to study for also. A lot of the information is very similar to CISSP. You just have to learn to think about it from a different perspective. I just used the study guide from ISC2 and was able to pass. The key was taking my time and making sure I answered the questions from a Cloud perspective and not from a CISSP perspective. Because on a lot of the questions both answers were there, at least in my mind they were.

 

Good luck on what ever you choose.

Re: Whats a great compliment to the CISSP?

I'd take a look at your field and cater the compliment certification accordingly. I personally work in healthcare and found the HCISPP to be the natural next cert. With the current trend the CCSP also makes sense.

If you are auditing or dealing with vendor risk the CISA would do. Likewise, the CIPP for privacy. I think the best answer is that it depends on your current career path.

Agree. I just earned my CISSP in September and immediately went into study mode for CCSP (scheduled for December). I’m finding a lot of the material for CISSP translates over. Also have a few colleagues who took this route and found the CCSP to be a great follow on.

Re: Whats a great compliment to the CISSP?

I actually just passed the CCSP on Friday (10/6). It's been awhile since I took my CISSP but agree that it's a natural next test. Interested to see if container security, devsecops and runtime security make their way into this cert.
