I took live, in-person training. Compared to the other certifications I have it the CCISO program is more theoretical. I had more technical background and I really missed the management’s point of view on the security. From this perspective CCISO, was the right choice for me to catch up on management concepts with. I now know how to manage risk and how to deal with information security better.

I read the CCISO Body of Knowledge thoroughly to prepare for the exam and I think it is most important to thoroughly read and understand CCISO Body of Knowledge not only for passing the exam but BOK also give you clear and concise ideas for information security management day-to-day activities.

The certification has helped me to have a better view of the CISO or Information Security Officer work areas that need focus. The information I learned in the class has helped me improve my security program by expanding in the information of budgeting/risk/and auditing areas that are major concerns in the CISO role.

I took live, in-person training and I read the C|CISO Body of Knowledge thoroughly to prepare for the exam. My overall experience going through C|CISO training was very good. Scenario based training is recommended. It was a difficult exam because it scenario-based and took a lot of thinking. C|CISO is definitely among the top of the security certifications that I have, including CISSP.

I read the CCISO Body of Knowledge thoroughly to prepare for the exam. I found the exam somewhat difficult as there were numerous topic areas that are worthy of questions. Earning the CCISO certification assures my management that I have the required skills and knowledge. The CCISO program material helps me because I am constantly applying knowledge to security posture of organization.

The class was small, focused, and led by a phenomenal instructor, Joe Voje. (The instructor, the key to the whole experience in my opinion, was fantastic.) The materials were great. Student handbook and the slides were well done, cohesive, and easy to follow. The material itself is excellent in that it provides an excellent balance between the frameworks, the requisite knowledge of those frameworks, and the need to align with the business. While the CISSP is an extraordinary volume of material, essentially a carpet bombing of all things security, this course is focused in the much needed “how to run the program.

Having the CCISO shows I have executive level and strategic thinking abilities and awareness. It has contributed to me being considered for more senior roles. It helps me continue to advise executives on how to improve their security program at a level they can understand. It will also help me when I end up running my own program.

I took live, in-person training and read the C|CISO Body of Knowledge thoroughly to prepare for the exam. I found the exam somewhat difficult. Having the C|CISO has helped bring respect and recognition and allowed me to the make the case for a title change from Director to CISO. The content of the program broadened my knowledge into areas I had not had experience in before.

I took live, in-person training and I read the C|CISO Body of Knowledge to prepare for the exam. The most helpful sections of the training and BOK for me were the discussions on the various frameworks and the differences between them. After the class, I was tasked with creating a Third Party Oversight / Risk Management program for a client, and the framework references helped me customize the program to the industry and compliance requirements.

I took online training (iLearn) and I read the CCISO Body of Knowledge thoroughly to prepare for the exam. The CCISO BOK is a valuable resource that can be used as reference material. My experience going through the training program was excellent. CCISO is a recognized certification amongst CISOs and it has help me by showing that I have the skills other CISOs have also achieved. The CCISO program has helped me improve my security program. It is now more structured and based on domains.
