Hi Everyone,

Many thanks in advance

    Is the ISACA administering exams during this lockdown? If not, do they have an estimate when they may resume?

    Hi JDMurray,

    Sorry for my late response, I have only started studying for the CISM, I am giving myself 3 months intensive studying before I sit the exam in the summer, and I plan to sit the exam at the comfort of my home or  at a CBT testing location in the UK, hopefully everything will be back to normal by then.

    Unfortunately this thread  does not allow  me to put up the ISACA link

    Extracts from  ISACA's website:
    "Beginning in mid-April, ISACA certification exams will be available online

    As part of our commitment to providing uninterrupted access to our resources even when you may be restricted to your home, ISACA is making certification exams available as an online, remotely proctored option."


    I hope this info helps
    Many thanks

    Oh, yes, good news about ISACA's Remote Testing capability! I now see that CompTIA will have online testing on April 15th too. It looks like the (ISC)2 is not risking their exam content to the perils of uncontrolled exposure. (Given the ease at which the computer screen can be recorded by a background/hidden process I'm not surprised.)

    Good luck on the CISM! I'll be going after the CISM and CISSP-ISSMP later this year after I finish an MBA program. I need some more management-related acronyms after my name!  B)

    Hi Everyone,
    Sorry for my late response, I have used TechRepublic Academy for my training resources, and you can get excellent deals on this site I am currently using Stackskills  for my cybersecurity training. I got the wonderful deal off TechRepublic Academy. They have currently got a Info Security certification training bundle deal for $41 30% cheaper than when I got my deal, plus  this deal ends in 4 days

    Hi  AbbySec & Bharatibi, sorry I have been very lazy lately I have not been studying, but I am getting back into the grove of things for July, so if you are still interested in being my study buddy,  My email address is [email protected] Would it be ok if we also set up a Whatapp group?

    Many thanks
    Cassma

    Hi Everyone
    ***IMPORTANT !!!
    It me again, I forgot to mentioned if you are interested in checking out TechRepublic Academy site for training deals. Make sure you do not buy  any training deals from Certs-school. Its training classes are run by a robot, the experience is like turning on the read-out function in Adobe, additionally its training site is not secure..
