    Your degree with knock a year off your experience requirements so you'll have 4 years of security experience required. It really all depends on what you did with your 14 years of experience. If your jobs had elements of the 10 domains of security that comprise of the CISSP exam, you should be safe. If you never touched or performed ANY sort of security at all, then you'll be a Associate of ISC2 if you pass the test and it will be up to you to gain the security experience
