  • Cissp

    I am currently working towards the CISSP exam. I read that you need 5 years security experience to become a CISSP after passing. Does Windows experience count towards this, such as setting permissions, dealing with firewalls, access control, network monitoring, checking logs etc. and acting as appropriate, backup and disaster recovery planning.

      Thanks Dumber.

      Yes, I have read that one. I interpret that I should qualify enough for the experience. However, my primary job role is not security in nature. I just secure as appropriate for windows systems. Do you reckon that is enough or am I best to contact them?

        Review the detailed link:

        MCSE waives one year of the 5, so MS experience should count

          That answers my questions Ossian. Many thanks.

          I have MCSE and MCITP Windows 2008 Server, so will help and by the looks of it, enough experience as well.

            Also before getting the certificate you should know a CISSP.
            Futher more, out of my head you need to pay about $85 a year and get about 80 or 90 CPE credits per 3 years.
            If you don't keep up with the CPE points, you have to retake the exam after 3 years.

            Right now I don't start with it yet. A one inch deep and a mile wide exam is currently not where I'm looking for

              Thanks Dumber. I don't know a CISSP, so may have to put it on the back burner.

              It is a nasty exam. 6 hours for 600 questions I believe. It's interesting theory. I am hoping to get my MCT the end of this month,well I'm being assessed anyway, so will concentrate on that for now.

                Well I might be wrong about that you should know an other CISSP'er but that's what I've heard from a someone I know he is a CISSP'er.
                You might contact a traingcenter to make it sure though.
                But yes, it's a nasty exam. a lot of questions and so...

                Ps, 250 questions in 6 hours
                For now I stick with MS, Cisco, Check Point and well maybe CEH
