How Valuable Is CompTIA CASP+?

Background: I do predominantly blue team ops, and spread pretty thin between SOC duties, conducting risk assessments, vulnerability management etc. as well as developing procedures for the SOC and advising management on everything in between.

Region: EU/UK

Currently have CompTIA Security+ and CySA+, with an advanced degree in Networks & Cybersecurity. I am currently looking for a higher level certification both for career progression and for personal development.

Ideally, I’d like to go on to CISSP, but I don’t have the full 4yrs in cybersecurity required in my case. I am currently considering CASP+, but I hardly know anyone with the certification, and have no idea what its market value is.



Just go straight to the CISSP as an affiliate. It’s a higher cert and all that you need to do is work in cyber for whatever portion of experience you don’t currently have. So you’ll be a CISSP affiliate for two years and add say the three years you already have then you’ll fully certify. The CAP and CASP certs are good, but ultimately if your planning on CISSP anyway they’re not really needed long term.
