    Default Does my Checkpoint expertise count in being a CISSP Professional

    Hi

    I am CCSA, CCSE. I have approx 7 years experience in Networks and Firewalls. Now I am preparing for CISSP due to its market value and broader domain. The problem is that if I move to the domains of CISSP will I be able to be a Firewall administrator additionally or is it all together a different field with some basic inputs from different infrastructure teams.

    Thanks

    Hi Vijayant,

    CISSP is more to do with overall Information security management and is considered more of a management job.It's hard to find CISSP managing networks & Security... atleast in our part of world. I could feel your internal conflict which do happens with anyone planning for a switchover after spending quite time in this business.

    Having CISSP, definately you will have an edge over other's who acquired by having mere theoretical studying and moreover you will not be bluffed by your team /auditees :-)) at any point of time... that's more important.

    regards,

    As a CISSP that currently manages a security infrastructure of Checkpoint Firewalls I can give you the following advise:

    The CISSP will help you reach beyond the firewall/network aspect of your job to understand security in a broader sense. I might suggest some of the SANS courses(SANS Institute - Network, Security, Computer, Audit Information & Training), as they are more hands on. I learned more in one day of a SANS course than I did with the entire CISSP process.

    Hi,
    I have just completed a CISSP boot camp but did the SSCP exam at the end. Although seen as a lower standard, SSCP does cover network security/analysis and monitoring in more depth, it doesnt have the full scope of CISSP or the desireability!!
