(ISC)2 Launches New CISSP® Exam Format to Help Bring More Cybersecurity Professionals into the Field

(ISC) ²® announced today that it has changed the format of its CISSP exam (English version only) in a fixed, linear way to Computerized Adaptive Tests (CAT). CAT is the computerized delivery of test elements tailored exclusively to the ability of an individual candidate. The CAT value for candidates includes that it is more efficient, has shorter test administration sessions, and is more accurate when assessing competence. The maximum administration time for CISSP CAT is three hours, which allows more opportunities for administration of exams.

"This evolution in the way we administer our exams is an important investment in the future of our certification programs," said Dr. Casey Marks, vice president of professional programs, (ISC) ². "The implementation of CAT strengthens the commitment (ISC) ² to meet the critical demand of cybersecurity professionals around the world by providing a fair, valid, reliable and efficient exam administration process. CAT offers numerous benefits to candidates, including a more accurate and efficient evaluation of a candidate's competence, more opportunities for exam administration and shorter exam administration sessions. "

As of today, the CISSP CAT exams will be available exclusively through the Pearson professional centers (PPCs) and the selected Pearson VUE (ISC) ² test centers (PVTC Selects).
