What cert to get in 3 months...help!!!

I am an info sec manager on a contract job that ends in october this year.

I need to get a cert above sec+ before i exit and start the job search so...
Is it realistic to attain the CISSP in three months or should I shoot for something smaller

I have 1.5 years infosec experience
3.5 years security manager as a secondary duty
Only sec+ for certs

    CASP or SSCP may be easier then CISSP.

    2020 Goals: 0 of 2 courses complete, 0 of 2 exams complete

    I'd say go for CISSP. Security+ lets you waive one year off the experience requirements. So assuming you can link both your work as security manager and your current infosec job to at least 2 of the 10 ISC2 domains, you should easily be able to justify the required experience to qualify for the cert. As far as general security certs go (specialist certs excluded)...there's no other cert that is going to look better on your resume.
