These links do not specifically cover the CISSP certification but talks about the Certified Information System Auditor (CISA) certification. It seems that a lot of CISSP's become CISA certified and also a lot of CISA certified practitioners become CISSP certified. This is two of the leading security and auditing certifications on the market.
