If you ask me why not ISSAP then I may even wonder about why not ISSEP
(expertise in engineering) though it's a bit more US centric according to
But yes..I agree ISSMP and ISSAP are more broader and tecnical but the aim
of every security professional is to move into management, if he\she hasn't
ISSEP has an official ISC2 CBK course guide too, unlike ISSAP and ISSMP, I
wonder why is that?
Now, I have met this guy who happens to be a pro in security and been in
the field for years. He took the review seminal in Finland and then the
exam and guess what...couldn't make it. He was surprised...very much
surprised at his failure and me too.
And that's the reason I don't intend to take it lightly, given the fact
that unlike, CISM, exhaustive course guides and sample representative
questions/answers database doesn't exist.
When I enquired this guy who couldn't make it through ISSMP exam, about
what would be change in his study mechanism that he didn't do last time, he
said that he would concentrate on stuff available from NIST website.
But that stuff is huge and enormous.
And that's the reason for my posting.

About 2 years back I looked at the domains covered by ISSAP vs ISSMP.
ISSAP seemed more useful at that time, so I took the exam and passed
However ISSMP is one of my goal this year. ISC2 has a review seminar
for ISSMP in Virginia coming up in Nov. But I don't think I will be
able to attend that due scheduling conflicts :-(
