WHAT IS THE CISSP?
The Certified Information Systems Security Professional is a different type of exam.
It takes dedication, drive, focus and a willingness to never give up.
It’s now a computer adaptive style exam which is max 3 hours and contains 100-150 mind-bending, confidence-destroying, doubt-yourself questions testing your security concepts, and your patience.
WHERE DO I EVEN START?
It’s not a technical exam – you won’t be configuring OSPF or hacking with a Kali box.
It’s not about memorizing every chapter in a study guide either.
All it takes is knowing the concepts.
It’s not impossible. You can definitely pass it.
