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.

Conceptually, the content learned during the CCISO program will help me to transform my organization into a more mature program. My next career goal is to move up the management latter into a managerial or executive position with oversight over an organization’s security program. The CCISO program content will assist me to apply enterprise security concepts to my organization’s security program and enhance the overall effectiveness of our security program. The best parts of the CCISO course were hearing the real-life experiences of the instructor applying the CCISO course concepts to real world information security issues facing business organizations, as well as the shared perspectives among the various course participants from various business sectors.

The content of the CCISO Program relates to my current job because it will help me engage other CISOs of like mind in like conversations. The program allows me to look at the CISO position as a business leader rather than technical position. This opens up opportunities around policy and program development. The best part of the class was networking.

Our state is adopting a NIST standard and the content for ISO helped me understand what will be needed to setup NIST. My next career goal is the title of CISO and the content gave me a better idea of what it means to be a CISO and what is required. The best part of the class was meeting other professionals with the same goals and issues I face each day.

We’re in a highly compliance regulated environment so the content in the CCISO Program fits well with my current role. We live within the NIST world and are implementing a more formal InfoSec Mgmt Program. Currently I’m a CTO for a cloud computing company that I was a founder of. The CISO title may switch my focus over the next couple of years to security / infrastructure consulting. The program added a nice base and will let me think about areas of focus going forward. As the CISO role becomes more standard, small to mid-sized companies that can’t afford one will be possible good targets for help. The best part of the class was that we had a diverse class and the instructor focused on getting real world examples and discussions. Also, tools that everyone else uses for each piece we talked about. We all want to know what people use to get help.

The content I learned in the CCISO program gives me better preparedness for hackers, attacks, etc. The best part of the class was collaboration with people who have real-world experience.
