Does "CISSP Retired" Still Exist?

@AndreaMoore 

Andrea,

Does the member status of CISSP Retired still exist?

If so, where on the (ISC)2 web site is there any information about it?

 

When I search the www.isc2.org site for the bundled term "CISSP Retired" or just the word "retired" the only search results shown are courses offered by (ISC)2, but no pages on the site. [Please note this as an apparent shortcoming of the site search feature.]

 

Before the end of this year I must decide whether to continue full certification, allow my certification to lapse and thus resign my (ISC)2 membership, or (if it is still available) move to a CISSP Retired to retain membership.

 

Using Google to search for 

site://www.isc2.org "CISSP Retired"

results in the page

https://www.isc2.org/Certifications/CISSP/CISSP-Retired

However, I cannot trust that page as current since it is not obviously linked on the main site pages, and has no currency or last-updated date on the page. Further, I have learned that most large websites leave expired pages available that can be found by a Google site search, but are no longer valid. Thus, it is not reasonable to trust as currently valid pages found via Google without confirmation through that site's own search or link structure.

 

Thanks,

 

Craig

 

p.s. Please note the conundrum discussed during 2019 in the thread 

Retired CISSP - Problematic Requirement

Thank you for bringing this to my attention. I will look at that 2019 thread as well. 

 

Here is the official Retired Status page under Member Policies. Click on the Retired Status policy at the bottom.

Let me know if any further questions that I can look into. 

 

Take care,

Andrea,

Thank you for the quick response.

Here are added observations to help your research:

 

1. Finding the page you linked is non-trivial and definitely non-intuitive. Recalling that a site search does not lead to it, here are the steps I had to trace to find it after seeing your link:

a. Link to the home page, www.isc2.org

scroll to the very bottom to click on Quicklinks - Policies and Procedures

b. Click on 

(This gets to the page you linked).

 

2. Going to the information page I had found using the external Google search,

https://www.isc2.org/Certifications/CISSP/CISSP-Retired 

you will see a linking line

Download the CISSP Retired Status Application Form

but clicking there leads to a file-not-found page,

https://www.isc2.org/-/media/ISC2/Documents/cissp-retired-status-application.ashx?la=en&hash=F8BF815...

which indicates that info page is, as I had been concerned, no longer current or valid.

 

Good luck, and stay healthy!

 

 

Craig

Re: Does "CISSP Retired" Still Exist?

I was going to write a response to what Craig Shelton had written but he really did a great job in summarizing what my issue was with the CPE requirement hurdles and the (IMO) draconian measures that ISC2 has in restricting usage of this hard won certification. I am currently employed and use my CISSP knowledge every day and have to take training on new tools and initiatives to stay current and provide the expected service to my employer. I stayed current with my dues and tried to keep up with CPE credits but could not. I will retire in the next few years and a "CISSP (Retired)" tagline would be great as I would like to provide help to the community in CyberSecurity as this help is greatly needed as the "arms race" continues to evolve. I would really like the ability to use the tag "CISSP Retired" in the future given the effort it takes to stay current and effective in this profession.

I recently had a conversation about the retired status policy and it reminded me to report back to you all here.

 

Retired status is specifically for those members who are no longer employed/in a contract position for monetary gain. You may still practice in the sense of volunteering, participate in forums like this Community, educate yourself/others, etc. If you have further questions regarding your specific situation, please contact member support at https://www.isc2.org/Contact-Us

 

To find more information regarding retirement, I've included these steps:

@AndreaMoore 

Thanks for the clarification (at least for me).

 

I was unclear on the topic of Blogging, chatting in the Community and mentoring.

 

Regards
