When will CISSP be accepted for MCSE 2003 Security credit?

Discussion in 'MCSE' started by Greg Guilmette, May 6, 2009.

  1. I found that on the "Certification Planner" (which I think is an awesome
    tool) the listed components that qualify for credit towards the MCSE 2003
    Security Certification are not in-line with what is on the Microsoft Learning

    When looking at the Certification Planner under "CORE" >> "Security Group" two Security requirements.

    On the Microsoft Learning web pages, the only listed the COMPTIA Security+
    (which is under "Security Group Core 2" in the planner), which I have
    requested to be applied this morning... I'm not looking forward to taking the
    299 exam if I can actually apply the CISSP.

    I called the MCP phone # and they said that they are making updates, but NO
    plan on when OR IF the CISSP will be accepted - only that "things are
    changing, and look for announcements".

    Does anyone have further information on the CISSP, CISA, CISM, and CSSP
    credentials that are listed in the Certification PLanner but not in the
    Microsoft Learning page?

    I can only share my discussion that I had with Microsoft in early 2008,
    and they told me that they were in talks with (ISC)2 at that time.
    Nothing ever came out of it, and I just assumed that nothing ever would.

    I thought it was kind of lame, but I can only assume they consider it a
    low priority.

    I have CompTIA Sec+ and MSCE: Security

    CompTia might be the best you can do. Dunno though

  4. Which is weird, as the CompTIA exams are considered entry level. I wouldn't
    mind seeing some other certifications counting as credit for the electives.
