Re: Any recent CCSP Pass?

Most are failing this exam, the majority of my study group members are first-time CISSP passers, but have failed the CCSP. One member even failed CCSP twice.... We had two members take it earlier this week and also failed.

Re: Any recent CCSP Pass?

IMHO, you can get away with passing the CISSP by having sufficient work experience and burying yourself into the official study guides and practice tests.

Strangely though with CCSP, you probably need a fair amount of networking experience especially on the SOC or NOC front as well. The official ISC2 books are good for learning the basics but they are insufficient to pass the exams.

Re: Any recent CCSP Pass?

We had a member with years of cloud experience, who was also a CISSP and failed the CCSP. Like I said, before late last year, people were passing left and right, now not so much. 

 

One would assume since CISSP waives all requirements for the CCSP, and requires CPE's that the CCSP wouldn't be more difficult than the CISSP.

Re: Any recent CCSP Pass?

The CPEs for all intents and purposes can be applied to both certifications.

Haven't obviously seen how the exams last year looks like. But I can say I was certain I would fail when I ended the exams. It definitely was difficuit.

A lot had to do with the way some of the questions were asked. A lot of technical and logical statement were used in the questions, so you really have to read the questions carefully. Non native English speakers will find it even more challenging.
