we have created a forum within the (ISC)2 Singapore Chapter website for the System Security Certified Professional (SSCP) Study Group.
I would like to share that SSCP is a great starting point for Associate members or student members to start pursuing their Cyber Security certifications.
Some Professional members who are already CISSP certified might ask what are the difference between SSCP and CISSP? The SSCP is designed for the technical practitioner. It covers how to incorporate, build, design and apply security to technology.
The CISSP was designed with leaders in mind. It emphasizes how to build a program and apply concepts of security to the business. SSCP tends to focus on technical application, and CISSP on the business alignment of that application. Another important point to consider is depth and breadth: SSCP has more depth; CISSP has more breadth.
Therefore to be endorsed and Certified as a SSCP, it only requires one year of experience a year of cumulative, paid, full-time work experience in one of the seven domains.
For the CISSP, candidates must have at least five years of cumulative, paid, full-time work experience in two of the certification’s eight domains.
Even though I was CISSP certified before I got my CCSP and SSCP certifications, I went for my SSCP because I want to test the depth of my skills as a technical practioner. Well I can say it's up to every individual's resolution and preferences.
If you have friends that who would like to have a career change to the Cyber Security field, SSCP training and certification is definitely a good start. Join our chapter as we have certified members who facilitate the Study Group.
