Updated CISSP Exam

It appears that the CISSP exam is getting an update.
At this point, we are writing the Candidate Information Bulletin (CIB) for the updated CISSP, and in early 2012 we’ll introduce the new exam. The CSSLP will soon follow, and it will be published a bit later in 2012.

    I almost spit out my coffee laughing at this!

    FWIW the current criteria was released in 2008 so it does appear about time for a refresh. As with most ISC(2) releases I would imagine that the core would remain the same and they will update minor sections of the CIB to reflect modern trends. Chances are the AIO5 will still be valid when this is finally released.

    down77, with that you are correct. Right now, when you download the Candidate Information Bulletin from ISC they have Effective Date versions of 1/1/09 and 1/1/12. There are differences in the Key Areas of Knowledge, so it is worth a look.

    Because the 2012 version mentions the CAP (which can be taken at a testing center), there is an extra thing that says "If the test is administrated via computers, candidates' pass/fail status is provided at the end of the testing on the site" (p.33). The same page also only lists the CAP as being available to take on a computer.

    CIB's can be downloaded after filling out the form here: https://www.isc2.org/cib/default.aspx

    I usually hang out on 224.0.0.10 (FF02::A) and 224.0.0.5 (FF02::5) when I'm in a non-proprietary mood.
