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