I am almost ready to write the CISSP exam. My challenge is that I am based in South Africa & yesterday our government announced a 21 day lockdown to try "flatten the Covid 19 infection curve". Question is are there any plans from ISC2 to allow for online proctors to monitor an online CISSP examination? I have checked with Pearson vue and SA is not listed as we use 3rd party testing centers.
How exactly do you cheat when you are being watched 24/7?
With a Nanny Cam. Think about what (ISC)² believes to be their most valuable asset and it will make sense.
I just want to be a member and get CISSP. now if need to take 2, 3 or more camera fix on my test, I don't care. I am a professional and I respect the decision make by ISC2 and others idea for dont permit remote control exam. by the way.
Problem with testing from home is that your breaking the ISO standard for having a qualified proctor available. If we start bending, if not breaking the rules for CV-19 why bother with using any ISO standard at all? Doesn't matter if anyone should bother with using any testing center, regardless. What would that do to the value of certification overall if there is any question about the paper holder promise that they didn't cheat while testing at home?
Sorry, but the argument doesn't hold a drop of water. You go to testing outside of a regulated, proctored facility and your asking for more doubt in the testing than its worth.
Not an opinion post at all. Perhaps your completely unfamiliar with the International Standards Organization of which most certifications rely. Not unlike proper grammar we have a foundation from which to rely upon with testing, the auditing of said testing and validation of testing provided. Perhaps you were too busy looking past the URL included to bother reading the portion dedicated to proctored exams.
Understand you are in a hurry and obtaining paper is an absolute must but you really need to slow down and read what people are actually telling you not just going by your "feelings" on the matter. Without the proctor system in place, testing becomes anything but trusted not to mention who do you bravely think is going to sit through 6 plus hours of video, verify that the audio timestamp matches that video feed. Nothing was tampered, altered or otherwise genuine hundreds of times a week and you'll find your answer. No one is going to want to sit and verify such inexact information. Sorry, you are WRONG, here. The overhead to provide such testing even for a short period of time would be extremely expensive and easily challenged. That's why the ISC(2) and most others follow the ISO guidelines.
Its hard to take your rebuttable seriously when you cannot even capitalize your first words let alone prove you cannot cheat the exam while sitting for a remote exam. Cheating would be trivial without extreme verification or an affidavit from the proctor. Even then I would be very skeptical.
Hold on for a couple more weeks till this starts to blow over. The exam will still be waiting for you.
