The Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP) is the most prestigious security certification. People with the certification demonstrate a comprehensive understanding of many aspects of security as well as many years of relevant experience in the security space. The test is one of the more challenging tests with a fair number of experienced security professionals failing it the first time they take the test.
While there are many top security professionals that don’t have the CISSP certification, having a CISSP demonstrates a commitment to the craft of security and a proof point for any potential employer of the security professional’s capabilities.
Because this certification is so coveted unfortunately some claim to be a CISSP when they are not. How can you confirm that someone is really a CISSP? Simple, follow the following steps.
- Get the person’s name and six digit CISSP certificate number.
- Go to the ISC2’s verification website: https://webportal.isc2.org/custom/certificationverification.aspx
- Type the person’s name, certificate number and the CAPTCHA code.
- The website will do the rest and give you the person’s certifications and when they expire as well as the person’s city, state and country.
