Friends, I really want to know if it is possible to change my destiny and my life having the CISSP certification?
first all; I want real life advice:
I finish my high school in 2013 in IT Security and Management speciality and I current just enroll certifications on cybrary.it webpage, i want to leave my country (Angola) because i don't see my position here, I don't feel good this country. I have deep knowledge about Security but no certifications official, i want get cissp certification after this leave but I'm afraid to leave and don't find work.
My plan is to get cissp, sscp, cisco cyberops, csa+, Linux+, ccna sec, and others
if i have only Cissp for a while can i Leave my country and find job? in EU, or Canadá or US
so my friend what you advice me.
remember i'm 34 years old
waiting for answer
Be very careful in this kind of forum. You must know the idiosyncrasies of information security personnel. They WILL check you out. I know that I have been ‘fact-checked’ perhaps thousands of times over my 30-year career, and I never taken it personally. If you are intending to be a CISSP, then the first thing you must learn are the ethics. CISSP is a registered trademark of ISC2. No other entity has the authority to designate that to you.
This is one of those simplistic rules that if you violate it would land you in a lot of trouble here in the United States, as well as across Europe. If you cannot adhere to the ethics, then you cannot even get started networking in this forum, much less get referred to a job after migrating abroad. Engaging in unethical and criminal activities is a sure way for you to be deported, even if you did manage to find flight abroad.
The CISSP is a protected and valuable designation. By putting a Cybrary course under the header 'certifications' you suggest that you have sat the CISSP exam, passed, were endorsed, signed the code of Ethics and fulfilled the requirements with regard to experience. You yourself stated you do not. You are therefore not a CISSP and should not - intentionally or not - try to make that impression.
Again, I kindly request that you immediately remove this from your profile.
I understand, i'll remove it from LinkedIn , i dont want any trouble, but everybody know that on cybrary people just enroll to take knowledge not to be certified. but i will correct it now. thank you for advice, I appreciate
I see you already did, very well, thank you.
Be sure to remove any entries from the 'Certification' section for which you do not have proof that you really have the certifications. As @Lamont29 already pointed out, information security professionals tend to check your certifications and if they find you have been cheating (either intentionally or not) this immediately discards you as a candidate for any security related function in the US and EU.
Thank you kindly for your swift and adequate response.
I'm not a man of trouble, because in the end I'll be guilty. our words and actions can condemn us.
in information security every detail is analyzed I know that.
I sincerely thank everyone for the repairs that were made and I hope that I have not yet been complied.
Thank you again everyone
It’s important that we have these discussions, and it’s even more important that people can take constructive criticism. Information security professionals, if we are going to be good, are great critics, keen in finding misnomers. I think that you will do fine so long as you remain as open to critiquing as you apparently are.
I must see from every angle and give the reason who deserves it. for this case all the advice that I am receiving will be for me an experience of how to act in the future.
From now on I thank all those who have created time to respond in this open debate with their suggestions, and I end up drawing plans with constructive ideas.
