CISSP-ISSMP – happy ….

Monday, July 11th, 2022

…. to report that I passed the exam last week. It’s been in the making a couple of months and I finally found the courage to take the plunge.

On the weekend, I sent in the endorsement and it will take a couple of weeks for (ISC)2 to process it, as usual.

Now with both those exams (ISACA CRISC and CISSP-ISSMP) finally (and successfully) behind me, I can move on to something new.

I’ve previously dabbled in some pentesting and I would like very much give OSCP a try while casually reading about and learning for the ISACA CDPSE. Let’s see how it goes and how far I can take it….

Update from 1 week later: Already processed by (ISC)2. All good. Certified. Yay me.

I’ve been working at this for a while…. I got a paid self-study course which I finished but access to the learning material expired already. At least I can still access the flash cards.

The official CBK book has terrible reviews on Amazon. I wonder what that leaves me with. I’m tempted to pay for some online ISSMP questions.

Since there is a big overlap of material with the ISACA CISM and ISACA CRISC, I actually should be able to nail this anyway (see my other posts)

Update 20220519:

I ordered the official CBK book. Several people pointed out how they were using that book to study for the exam and it’s a much cheaper alternative to re-purchase the CISSP-ISSMP online self-study course. So I guess it can’t hard. Plus I like physical books.
