My exam preparation is completely directed by the ISC2 CISSP-ISSEP exam outline. The most common references used for the ISSEP by domain from ToniHardy and the ISC2 official references are quite helpful. Having passed CSSLP exam helps as well.

The milestones are updated as follows:

  • Milestone #1: PMI + CISSP

    • 2018/04/27 PBA
    • 2018/06/19 CISSP

  • Milestone #2: ISACA
    • 2018/07/24 CISM
    • 2018/08/13 CRISC

    • 2018/09/13 CSSLP (originally scheduled on 2018/09/28)

  • Milestone #4: EC-Council

Moving forward is the best strategy of retreat! I’ll keep moving.
