Preparing for CISSP. Using the Shon Harris book. Its so huge that I’m worried I won’t be able to retain it all. Are we supposed to know everything in the book? What’s a good strategy for preparing?

I’m a new hire with a non-CS degree and I’m overwhelmed. I thought I was starting to get a handle on things after passing the CISSP, but I absolutely do not. Programming, networking, cloud architecture, governance frameworks... how do you focus?

Hi Fishes! Can you please help me with sharing a blog or a robust game plan to study for the CISSP? I am not that well versed with security, so will have to start fresh. Thank you so much in advance!

Why do people hate on the security + so much? Yes, it’s mainly foundational knowledge, but almost all of the knowledge is still applicable for the cissp or other advanced exams

CISSP vs. CISA thoughts? Which one is harder? Having a hard time studying for the CISA, so reevaluating if it's worth taking the cert if I don't want to stay in audit long term. Cont.

What's the industry's view on the CISM cert? I know the CISSP is like the gold standard but what about the CISM? Lots of higher level roles require one or the either so it seems like there is value?

I’ve been considering to stop pursuing the CPA certification and instead wanted to focus around more IT driven certifications like CISSP. I already have my CISA. I’m just not as committed to the accounting world as I used to be making it hard to study and put my full effort into the CPA. Has anyone ever felt the same that it was best to change paths if your not truly committed to the long road of the CPA?

Does IT audit count as experience for cissp? Like I've looked at tons of logical access controls and that would relate to domain 5 IAM. I've also done SOC 2 and iso 27000 audits and [continued]....
