Congratulations and thank you for all the detail on your process and experience.
I am a newby to cyber security certifications, but have 25 years of experience in IT and now interested in getting a CISSP.
However, I'm not clear on the endorsement process. https://www.isc2.org/Endorsement It says I have to know someone already certified or ask the (ISC)² to do the endorsement. I don't know anyone, so what are the requirements the (ISC)² would need?
@Baine Congratulations on taking steps to obtain the CISSP! If you do not know a member of (ISC)² in good standing and request (ISC)² to act as your endorser, the application is the same; however, you will be required to provide proof of employment. Proof of employment can be any of the following:
had to look that one up !
It looks like at the first of the month, so 7-1-2018
Time to get ready for a lifetime of documenting CPE's and paying AMF's.
If you earn a CPE and did not turn it in.....it didn't happen!
Congratulations! I recently passed the exam and had turned in the endorsement application a week ago. I agree with you that this is not an easy test. And I am glad that it is not easy, because I think that is what's keeping the high regard of professionals to this certification.
