Prerequisite Knowledge

  • For Experienced Personnel

Candidates must have a minimum of 5 years of full – time security work experience in 2 or more of the 8 domains of the CISSP CBK. Earning a 4 year college degree or regional equivalent or an additional credential from the (ISC)² approved list will satisfy 1 year of required experience. Educational credit will only satisfy 1 year of experience.

  • For Non Experienced Personnel

A candidate that doesn’t have the required experience to become a CISSP may become an Associate of (ISC)² by successfully passing the CISSP examination. The Associate of (ISC)2 will have 6 years to earn the 5 years of required experience.

Requirement Waivers

  • CISSP Candidates are eligible to waive one year of professional experience by;
  • If you have a four – year college degree
  • Currently hold an active certification on the (ISC)² approved list from any one of the major security certification vendor like SSCP, GIAC or SANS, EC Council, CISCO Security, Juniper Security, CompTIA etc, you can check the approved list from isc2.org.
  • Once you have any of this above experience then you need 4 years of experience to get qualify for the CISSP Certification. But you cannot waive more than one year using both experiences, as you can only use one experience though you have both of them.
