    Yes you can. Having the CEH9 you will need only 4 years experience instead 5. Btw you can apply as ISC Associate, and passing the exam, ISC2 will give you 6 years time to achieve the 4 years experience in minimum 2 domains.

    Honest question, why take it now and not after you gain more experience?

    I agree with garbo77. You should try the Associate. That demonstrate to employers your seriousness about this certification.

    First, find a job in Infosec or at least that can help you gain the required experience for CISSP. Then in 2-3 years, do the certification. Meanwhile, you will have gained real world experience, and that is worth more than a paper cert.

    Whats the point of getting certifications which cant get you recogination in our field only CEH , OSCP , CISSP , CISA , CISM , CRISC works thats it

    Why should i go for others ?

    Usually IT experience supersedes any of those certs

    Certification is what counts for management these days, unfortunately.

    Well... certification without experience is not worth a lot IMHO

    Few experience and a few low-level cert indicate some interest... but few experience and too high-level cert indicate only that you can write test.

    Pretty sure that you might be able to apply that theory to entry level positions. Anything past that though Experience > Certifications. Honestly it isn't even close. Say your hiring for a network engineer position. Are you going take someone with 5 years networking experience and no certifications, or someone with no experience but has a CCNP?

    Obvious having both is way to go. But experience trumps certs everyday of the week.

    Knowledge of IT is a good point, but years of real-world experience in working in a real business is worth a lot. Even if you don't learn something in IT, just to learn the business way of thinking.. it is worth it.
