Certified CISO students have a lot to say about their experiences in the CCISO class as well as how earning the knowledge as well as the certification has impacted their careers.

A lot of the high-level overview of the information in each of the 5 domains is useful for the type of work that I perform. I am responsible for many aspects of Cyber Security for the organization I work for and the information is beneficial to staying on top of the requirements and learning new concepts. My goal is to continue the upward climb within the Cyber Security field. The CCISO Program provides training and certification for my future goal of becoming a good CISO. The instructor related real world content with the lessons, providing further reinforcement of the material.

I deal directly with information assurance/security on a daily basis. I have had no formal education in this field. It is all learned on the job. The content of this course has put me on an even playing field with my peers and has already earned me a lot of credit with them. My career goal is to be a CIO and this program helps set me up for success as a CIO in making me more productive and knowledgeable for advancing to the CIO position. This course is designed for a couple levels higher than I am in the information security field. It has prepared me to better relate to and communicate with those higher level organizations. COMPTIA certifications are quite sufficient for my current position but I wanted to have a broader view of information security frameworks. Joe Voje (instructor) was awesome.

I currently lead a group of teams responsible for security infrastructure, incident response, risk management, and forensics. This content helped solidify my understanding of the issues relevant to an executive with accountability over those functions. My next career goal is to continue to grow into larger and broader security executive positions. My current long term goal is to achieve a CISO position within a large company. This content reflects those concepts and perspectives that I need to incorporate into my skills and habits to achieve that goal. The training and discussion as we went through the course material was one of my favorite parts. Having real world situations and examples to talk through made the subject matter more relevant and therefore easier to remember.

While the instructor, material, facilities and the EC-Council team were great, I wish that the course was 5 days long. I really enjoyed the program. The CCISO program directly relates to my current job function. I am confident that I will be using almost everything I learned in class. Great training program. While I am enjoying my current role, my future career goals include becoming a CISO. The CCISO program directly prepared me for the next step in my journey of becoming a CISO. The entire program was developed with extreme care and rigor. While I don’t have a favorite part, I am mindful that each component of the program is necessary and relevant to providing the appropriate information for those that aspire to become a CISO.

I am constantly being pushed away from a technical role into more of a director role, which is more political and “negotiative”. The content relates directly to this concept and reinforced the skills and concepts I need to put into practice. I will achieve a Master’s degree in the medium to long term future. My goal is to serve as a CISO in a small to medium sized organization. It directly correlates to my career goals! I enjoyed hearing real world experiences and how the industry is moving to expectations of an executive at the table for information security.
