Anyone have any insights, knowledge, comments on, etc. the CISSP/SSCP Associate certifications? How valuable are they to employers?
Yes, on the (ISC)2 endorsement form there's a section that allows you to request the (ISC)2 to pick an endorser for you.
Also, anyone here at TechExams with the SSCP or CISSP and endorse other people for (ISC)2 certs. The endorser should make all attempts to verify that the endorsee actually has the requisite experience for the cert. For me, I would just need to see the person's resume (on www.linkedin.com is fine) and have some email "tech chat" with the person regarding InfoSec topics. If the person is a prolithic poster here on TE then the resume will be enough.
