How can I attain CISSP credentials?

Shon Harris sheds light on Associate CISSP programs and the requirements needed to become CISSP-certified.

I was certified in MCSE Security and CCNA three years ago, and have six years of work experience in the networking field. However, most of my work isn't security specific. Can I attain the CISSP if I pass the exam? If not, how can I attain CISSP credentials?
Visit www.isc2.org for (ISC)2's requirements for obtaining a CISSP credential. (ISC)2 also offers an Associate CISSP program for candidates who do not meet the requirements for the CISSP. You can participate in the Associate Program until you have acquired the necessary experience.
