So I finally passed thee CISSP on my second attempt! and now I need to get this endorsement thing figured out. I dont know any CISSPs so that might be a problem.

I am thinking of doing directely through ISc2 but I have a quick question....How direct does your experience have to be?

I have been worked as a business system Analyst for a financial software company for that last 5 years. at the company
I am not a security professional there but at the company we do have to follow change management, release management procedures as well as patch management. I also perform regression tests and unit testing for the this enough experience? how much of each domain do you actually have to be engaged in?

    Your work experience has to be verifiable if they want to dig that deep. I actually just copied and pasted a section from my resume that accounted for 4 years. I used the sec+ as a 1 year filler.

    My resume contained bullets that matched 5 domains. My reference from my old job (currently my new job) said nobody ever contacted him.

    Just fill in the endorsement application honestly and accurately. If you have the minimum required experience, it shouldn't be problem. Get HR and your manager to sign a letter confirming your work.

    Positive references from colleagues, managers and HR will help in the slim chance you're audited.

    Congrats and Good luck ;)
