I finally obtained the Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP) certification. It is definitely the most well-known certification in the information security industry and the one recommended for any professionals in this field.
What is the CISSP? It is not necessarily the most technical or specialized certification. It would seem that information security is one unique specific area but it’s quite the opposite when there are so many possible domains. The CISSP is the ideal certification that allows someone to know a little bit of everything on all these specializations.
