Great point of reflection, so I want assurances that I giving this exam I would find a job any where.
about the experience is something that you work, you earn with time.
People drop many things, friends, families, sleepless nights to have this Cert paper, and I think there should be required experience.
Experience is a process. Work + time
@Admarnelson- please be informed that it is totally unjust for anybody to suggest that "you would find a job anywhere" if you pass the exam. Passing the exam is just one step towards certification; you'll need 5 years of experience in the field, in at least 2 of the 8 domains. Then you'd need to get endorsed by another (ISC)² certified person and finally you'll need to subscribe to the Code of Ethics. And that - simply get's you certified, but again: THERE IS NO GUARANTEE THAT YOU WILL HAVE A JOB BECAUSE YOU ARE CERTIFIED. It will, however, improve your chance.
Also, being a certified security specialist also DOES NOT GIVE YOU A BETTER CHANCE OF BEING ACCEPTED AS A REFUGEE OR MIGRANT.
I am sorry and apologize for shouting loudly here, but it seems that we both are not native English speakers and I want to be absolutely clear about this, as I fear you may otherwise be very disappointed. Becoming a CISSP is a great idea because it gives you some assurance that you have sufficient knowledge and experience to be allowed to be part of the professional community - but please, dont' think that it is as simple as "become a CISSP, migrate to some other country and happily live long ever after".
I hope you will be a CISSP one day and help the profession and the people you work with, be it inside or outside Angola.
The process of earn cissp certify i know and i'm working for that, i have more than 2 domains of experience and by others reasons not personal i didn't get the cert. but i'm trying this year make the exam cissp and others
Hi @Admarnelson, I know we've spoken over the forum's message system and I think while people here empathise, there isn't a great deal that anyone here can do to pratically reach out and try to fix this. Many of us are half a world away, and this is forum is essentially a talking shop on cybersecurity issues. Even if you could convince a cybersecurity person(most of who treat skepticism almost as a religion) that this was their most important mission in life, I think it's safe to say we would make extremely poor relocation consultants and 'the EU, Cananda and US' is a big place.
Your certification list is probably no complementary, so I'd try to narrow down there. Try to start with Security+(from what I remember it's really easy), then look at SSCP (it has a short experience requirement), use these as stepping stones to find the right role where you are based now and then draw up a three to five year plan to tackle the CISSP. If it's hard to get through to an entry-level cybersecurity role then you could focus on getting general IT work. To reiterate - this problem you are setting yourself, you need to chip away at based on a very focused action plan, and if you conflate the IT security certificcation with moving countries and try to solve them both at the same time I think it will be much harder.
In summary - try to focus on one thing at a time, set a time-box to achive it in (I'd recoomend a month), and inspect your outcome and adapt your approach.
I believe this to be your LinkedIn profile: https://www.linkedin.com/in/nelson-francisco-910926130/ - am I correct?
