What made you decide to become CISSP certified?

In my role, I interact with teams from diverse backgrounds on a daily basis. Many of the key personnel hold ISC2 certifications. I wanted to become CISSP certified to create a common basis for interactions with and within these teams. CISSP covers a wide range of the most relevant and important areas of information security within the 8 domains. This is why I felt it was the best certification to address any gaps in my experience and give me the essential knowledge and expertise I needed.

Why did you attend a class-room based 5 day CISSP Training Seminar?

There is seemingly no end to the material available purporting to support individuals preparing for the CISSP exam, but I felt that the classroom based training was the only efficient way to get to the core of what you actually needed to know for the exam.

I believe taking the 5 days out to concentrate on preparation for the CISSP ultimately saved me time in the long run.

What made the 5 day CISSP Training Seminar a good learning experience?

The seminar was very focused on making sure we covered all the necessary material with an organised and effective structure. There was also the opportunity throughout the seminar to get authoritative and informed answers to any questions or clarification where you needed it.

Would you recommend the 5 day CISSP Training Seminar with Cycubix to other Information Security Professionals – why?

Yes! If you are busy in your day job but also serious about passing the CISSP, this is the way to go. You get an experienced trainer who keeps things interesting, but you are not wasting any time on fluff! To pass the CISSP exam you need to be very clear on the material so having access to a well-informed instructor is key.
