Hi Eoin

I passed my CISSP exam last year. I agree with your points but would also
like to add some of my own.

As the CISSP covers such a broad range of areas under the information
security banner, I believe it provides professionals in this area with a
good baseline understanding of information security and everything that goes
with it. Most of us in our careers would not work in all of these areas but
I believe it is essential to have this basic understanding of them in order
to be able to see the bigger picture. On completing the exam my thoughts
were that we should all have this understanding as a starting point. Alone
it may not stand to much other than another credential but I believe it
provides support to any other specialisations or skills.

Looking forward to the conference!
