Anyone here with a CISSP?

Just curious if anyone here has done the CISSP? Do you carry any of the extra disciplines?

I am the worst about studying and taking exams. I quickly fall asleep reading IT manuals. I've been doing very well for several years with no current certifications of any kind right now, but I need to pad my resume. I'll eventually be a middle-age white guy in IT which seems to be the first they let go nowadays. At least as I understand, the CISSP isn't as specialized since its more conceptual and as long as you keep up credits and yearly dues, it doesn't expire. I'm curious what the value is on the open market given I have 10 years network security experience, 3 years of which are in management.

In the reseller/consulting market I don't see the CISSP holding the same value as say a CCSP or CCIE-Security. However, I do believe it holds a good value and I know for a fact that a lot of support jobs hold that credential dearly.

I got mine in 2007. I do not have any of the concentrations.

I did a boot camp, and 3 weeks of cramming.

CISSP i think is valuable, but by no means a true measure of skill/experience.

PM if you have any questions. I may have some practice stuff for you too.

It took me 5 hours to complete the test. It was a bitch.
