CISSP Certification Prerequisites

A candidate must successfully complete four processes to become a certified CISSP:
  • Examination
  • Certification
  • Endorsement
  • Audit


Before sitting the CISSP exam, the candidate must:
  • Schedule the exam.
  • Submit the exam fee.
  • Declare that he or she has a minimum of five years professional experience in the information security field. Four years professional experience plus a college degree is also acceptable. An Advanced Degree in Information Security from a National Center of Excellence (or regional equivalent) can substitute for one year towards the five-year requirement.
  • Complete the Examination Agreement and legally commit to the adherence of the (ISC)² Code of Ethics.
  • Answer four questions pertaining to criminal history and background.


Before the certificate will be issued, the candidate must:
  • Pass the CISSP exam.
  • Complete and submit an Endorsement Form.
  • Pass an audit of their professional experience declarations.


Upon passing the CISSP exam, the candidate must be endorsed by another (ISC)² certified professional.  The endorser must confirm that the candidate's professional experience claims are valid. Candidates may also submit an endorsement form if an (ISC)² certified professional is not available.


(ISC)² Services will randomly audit candidates prior to certificate issuance.
