Missed it a month or so ago by 20 points.  Took it again and knocked it out . 

First time I read  1/2 of the official study guide. 

Second time   I took a Training camp boot camp.  

Next step ..... CISA   hope these two aid in the job search.

    Thanks. One positive thing of not working at the moment is you can really just focus on professional growth. As well as spend time with the wife and kids .  

    I am already   a few pages deep into CISA

  • balancebalance Member Posts: 210 ■■■■□□□□□□
    Not at all .  I would say 10 or 15 questions were technical. 
  • musimusimusimusi COBIT 5.0 Foundation, CRISC, CISM Member Posts: 8 ■■□□□□□□□□
    Great to hear that. 
    Once again congratulations!
    I think I would redo the question, gain more confidence and understanding and will decide if want to proceed with the exam or not by end of this month.

    Which did you find harder between CISM & CISSP?
  • balancebalance Member Posts: 210 ■■■■□□□□□□
    Actually I found CASP harder than CISSP 
    so maybe CASP, CISSP, CISM

    @balance how was it the second time? I’m planning on retaking it in about a month. I’m going back and reviewing a few areas that I had saw during the test. 
    Goals: AWS Solutions Architect; OSCP; GPYC; GSE; CISSP

    Just remember your job is to support the business and senior management.  

    Don't  bring any outside  " Oh, I would do it like this in my organization..."

    Dear all,

    I am a new member to the forum with 13 years of software testing experience with functional and automation tests, I would like to diversify into security management, can anybody please guide on CISM certification and process for applying for certification as I do not have the relevant experience at the moment?

    What do you hope to gain by having people guide you through the process of applying for certification when you do not have the relevant experience?
