Re: Your new annual membership Fee is now $125! How do you feel about that?

Maybe the CEO's $500K+ annual compensation package is being renegotiated.

CISSPs of the world, unite! You have nothing to lose but your AMFs!

Unfortunately, I doubt we have much power here. Of the 130,000 or 140,000
CISSPs there are, roughly a third of them work for the US government, and have
to have the certs to hold their jobs. While that may seem ironic during a
government shutdown, ti does, nevertheless, mean that, as one person said, even if
ISC2 charged $10,000 for AMFs, you have to pay them to keep your job. Even if
everyone else left, by raising the rent and dropping the tenants, they still get to
make half the money, for a lot less work.

Then there are those who get to have their employers pay for the cert, and the
AMFs. They aren't going to care much, either.

So, that leaves those of us who do have to pay AMFs out of our own pocket. And
I'm quite certain that, in my case, ISC2 would be just as glad to see the back of me.

I think your link had some extra characters. This should be good

I agree with dpark75.

 

I have already reached out to several clients that I am assisting in filling security positions, and had discussions regarding the perceived value of the ISC2 certs.   They have universally agreed with me and will no longer include the CISSP as a job pre-requisite.  I also work with several cybersecurity graduate students that have come to me for guidance in advancing their careers.  ISC2 will not be in those conversations.

 

I am an older guy and I recall a similar scenario with Novell with their CNE cert.  As it got watered down, companies de-valued the certificate.  Hopefully one of those 6 figure executives will see that ISC2 does not have a product without it's members.

 

RIP (ISC)2

Wayne, you mean the "paper CNE" effect, which became the "paper MCSE". The constant push to expand membership and not to better the profession... seems to be exposing itself yet again.
