Is it even possible to get CISSP during uni?

Hi,
I would like to ask if there is a way to get CISSP during uni and if so how or what is the best way?

It’s not an entry level certification

No. There is not.

CISSP requires 5 years of verifiable work experience in two of the eight domains.

You can pass the exam, sure, but good luck doing that without the experience. Even if you did, you won’t be awarded the full cert until you get the required experience.

I’m not exaggerating, it’s one of the most difficult things I’ve ever done in my nearly 30 years of life. There’s only like 115,000 of us ***GLOBALLY*** for a reason. It’s definitely an end game cert.

I recommend starting with your Security+. That’s a good beginner cert for breaking into CyberSecurity.
