CISSP - Check.
Since wrapping up DefCon CTF this year, the next item on my list of resume building tasks was to get my CISSP certification. Most of me would have much rather spent the time actualy researching new security topics and that would have made me more useful to a potential employer as well. Still, I’m under no illusions about the value of having the certification to get past the HR filters for new positions or to lend credibility to your findings when presenting to a client. So, after many hours listening to prep materials while installing new floors in my house I felt like I was ready. Everyone has their own learning methods huh?
I took the test. I passed. Not much more to be said.
