CISSP experience requirements quicker by working 2 cyber jobs?

Hi,

I am working 60 or 80 hours a week in security between two jobs, will I be able to meet the minimum security experience requirements in a shorter amount of time? I am getting 40 hours from a full time cyber position and an additional varying 20-40 hours from my own security consultancy business. Taking into account the way IC2 stats part time hours are counted (2080 hours of part-time = 12 months of full time experience) would I be able to gain the necessary experience for the CISSP 1.5x as quickly?

Re: CISSP experience requirements quicker by working 2 cyber jobs?

I think this question is best answered by (ISC)2.

 

 

My instinct would be NO as most of us in Security normally work more than 40 hours per week, but I am not the expert.

 

@Kaity or @tonyshiver would one of you be kind enough to pass to the appropriate people.

 

With thanks

Oh, I should have thought of that earlier. When I was writing my (first) book, I
was doing 80 hours of research per week, in addition to the 40 hours per week
operations jobs I had ...

Re: CISSP experience requirements quicker by working 2 cyber jobs?

The rule is pretty clear, but if additional clarification is required, @dcontesti is correct that it needs to come from (ISC)².

 

From ISC's web site:

 

Full-Time Experience:Your work experience is accrued monthly. Thus, you must have worked a minimum of 35 hours/week for four weeks in order to accrue one month of work experience.

Part-Time Experience: Your part-time experience cannot be less than 20 hours a week and no more than 34 hours a week.

  • 1040 hours of part-time = 6 months of full time experience
  • 2080 hours of part-time = 12 months of full time experience

Thanks I see. Does not matter the amount of hours as long as it is over 35 for it to count as full time.

Sure. For Endorsement purposes, over-lapping in the same time period with employment experience is not accepted. We will accept part-time experience but not in the same week, month or year of the full-time experience.
