Hi,

I have an experience of 14 years in IT with a B.E. Degree in Electrical.
1.)AD and Exchange 6+ years
2.)Virtualization 2 years
3.)Information Risk Management around 1+ years
4.)Disaster Recovery around 1+ years


To my credit I only have a MCSE certification.
I have completed CCNA and CISSP courses and have failed in both the exams.

My query is can I apply for Computing Professional - specialising in CISSP with ASCO Code: 2231-79 ?

Any light on this would be of great help

Dear gchandrashekhar,

First welcome to the forum, I think you should apply for skill assessment to ACS under ASCO code 2231-79 (NEC) with Internet/ Network/ security specialization as you have a very good chances of success.

Bachelors of engineering degree with 4 years of experience is what ACS requires (where as you have approx 14 years). you can stress more on IT risk management and security of AD/ Exch./ ISA / SMS/ MOM infrastructure and DR sites.

Go throught ACS website..... FAQ section consolidates most of the information that might pop up. In case you are stuck anytime, you can shout here for help, and one of us will be happy to assist you..

Best Regards,
:) :) :)

Hi:

You would not be eligible for the CISSP ASCO code as you did not pass the certification exam. Also the work experience in Security is very recent (1 yr+) and I think you need more time in that area (Risk Management and DR) before you'd get a valid pass for it from ACS.

However you might be eligible for the network security area as you have more time in networking and have recently added some security experience as well.

Good luck :)

You should wait until you have actually certified CISSP (meaning you have good standing and have the certificate from ISC2).

I am a CISSP and in good standing.

As for applying I would seek some info from the ACS on whether there is a minimum work experience requirement for CISSP and if they count that from your start of networking or from the time you officially certified as a CISSP (major difference in years worked depending on this answer).
