    What course material are you currently studying from? And how much InfoSec knowledge and experience do you have prior to the start of your studying?

    If you are studying from the latest materials, and you have the experience necessary to get the full CISSP certification, you likely won't be affected by the domain reorganization at all.

    Hi,
    I am currently preparing for CISSP, but afraid I can appear for exams before 01-Jan-2012. Are there any materials available for the new CISSP exam? I think the official guide itself is not updated.

    Thanks,

    Joji

    I have a friend that works for ISC2 here in the Tampa Bay/St. Petersburg area, and the answer to your question is that the books, study material that you have now would be 100% useful for the 2012 exams. The exams are only being changed by 1% and that change is just the names of 2 domains.

    If you don't have the professional work experience to get the full CISSP certification, the SSCP is usually the better option. At any time you can take the CISSP exam without having the required work experience, and this will make you an "Associate of the (ISC)2," but you cannot become fully CISSP certified until you have acquired the experience. Only having passed the CISSP exam probably won't get you into many interviews, but it's better than not having it.

    Also, you should be aware that the SSCP exam has changes effective January 31, 2012. The changes aren't drastic but some of the material may not be in the books you get to study with. This blog talks about some of the changes in the SSCP exam.
