The ISSMP should not be all that hard if you already have your CISSP and
several year experience in any sort of an organization with more than a
1000 employees.  You will need to know a lot more high level Information
Security information such a governance models, policies, costs related
to risk/loss, insuarance, BC/DR, handling of PII, etc.

If your already in management, or ready to go into mangement, then you
will pass the ISSMP.

Subject: Anyone plans for CISSP-ISSMP?

Hi list

Amongst the two CISM and ISSMP, I have decided that I should (in the
near or far future) give ISSMP a take. It's been quite a few years since
I have had CISSP and wouldn't mind getting another paper worth a few
hundred dollars. The reason I say this is general realization that
certification never translated to required skill levels, needed to make
a mark within the security community.

Now, someone has told me ISSMP is indeed a tough nut to crack with no
packaged Review material/CBK available (unlike CISM), it makes it bit
more harder.

Anyone can suggest, where should I make a start or should I make a start
at all?
