Jack Daniel, Reluctant CISSP. What the heck does "Reluctant CISSP" mean?
It means several things, sometimes it means I am reluctant to admit I am a CISSP because:
- some people don't understand the CISSP certification
- the attitudes and/or behavior of a few CISSPs give us a bad reputation
- CISSPs tend to be managers, and mangers tend to be... managers
- in some circumstances it sounds like bragging
- sometimes the ISC2 seems to be headed in a different direction than I would like
It does not mean I do not value the certification, nor does it mean I do not respect others who hold the CISSP credential. It also doesn't mean I have given up on ISC2, even if I would like to see some things change fairly significantly in the organization.
I have commented on the CISSP before and my opinion hasn't changed, just my tagline.
