Quick question regarding eligibility for registering for and taking the CISSP exam. I noticed when trying to register for the exam they ask for current employer information. Is it a pre-requisite to be employed at the point in time you want to schedule and take your CISSP exam. I recently left my last position and am in between jobs taking some time to not only study for this cert but also taking some classes towards my MBA.
Thanks for the comment. I just found it strange that one of the mandatory fields when registering for the exam was employer and position, so I was curious if that was necessary or not. I have over 8 years of IT audit and security experience, I've only just taken some time off to pursue my studies and plan for this cert. So that's why I was worried if I need to be employed at the point in time when registering and sitting for the CISSP exam.
@Secure4All Thank you for your inquiry. No, it is not required to be employed to take the exam and become a member of (ISC)². As long as you have the work experience requirements at some point in your career, you will qualify.
