The Four Stages To Become a CISSP

internet lockThe CISSP (Certified Information Systems Security Professional) Certificate is an appropriate accreditation for mid- and senior-level managers interested in advancing their careers in the Information Security field.  This credential was the first Information Security certificate to be accredited by ANSI (American National Standards Institute) to ISO (International Standards Organization) Standard 17024:2003. Globally recognized, the CISSP Certificate is governed by (ISC)2 (International Information Systems Security Certification Consortium). To become a CISSP Certificate holder, here are the steps that you will need to follow:

Stage 1: The Examination

To be eligible to sit for the CISSP Certification exam, you need to:

  • Register for the exam
  • Submit the examination fee
  • Provide proof of at least five years of working experience in the field of IT security (A college degree can be substituted for one year of experience)
  • Complete the Examination Agreement
  • Answer four questions related to your background and criminal history

Stage 2: Certification

To be issued a certification, you need to pass the CISSP exam with a score of 700 points or more, submit a completed Endorsement Form, and then successfully pass an audit of your assertions.

Stage 3: Endorsement

In this stage, your application needs to be endorsed by another (ISC)2 professional in good standing to confirm that your assertions regarding your professional experience are true.

Stage 4: Audit

You may be selected at random to be audited by (ISC)2 before you are issued your certificate.
