I had 98% iPhone battery life left, but wanted to make sure it hit 100%.  I was on-call for the next 7 days - and it was only Day 1.  Seems ridiculous to think the phone's battery would die completely overnight, but I didn't want to take any chances.  I was primary on-cal...

The golden package has finally arrived!

I wouldn't say that the exam was easy. It was in deed a roller coaster ride where I felt confident while attempting a few questions but there were a few which were totally impetuous.

The only key to the success is hard work where one should focus on learning the concepts, however apart from that ones analytical abilit...

My journey to CISSP exam started by the one objective: improve my knowledge about Security Information on broad perspective.


So I thought: How can I get this knowledge with the right source and in the same time be challenged by it?


I realized that study to a Security certification should be the best strategy.  When you talk about an Information Security c...

Can not believe that I am a winner of the battle today. Cleared my CISSP exam during 8 months with hard study.

Limit time to my family, no hangout and drinking beer with my friends, no having the soccer match on the weekend. Everything is focused on the exam. I would like to share my experience during my studying time. Hope that it can help you find a litt...

Provisionally passed July 11, 2019

Timeline:

In 2016 I started thinking about getting CISSP, I checked the certificate requirements, books, other people journeys...etc

I was intimidated by the books size, yeah thousands of pages is not pleasant to read.  I had initial plan to study for it during my maternity leave, yup, was a big mistake,  underestimated new...

Romans 8:28 (NASB): And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.

Guys/Gals,
I passed this thing June 23, 2019, and I honestly thought it was a glitch when the test ended and I saw congratulations on the paper. Truthfully, there were times I wanted to get up and wal...

I am pleased to share that I cleared CISSP on 27th May 2019 in the first attempt. May seems to be a lucky month for me as a year back I cleared my CCIE Security in May itself :). 

From that day onwards, I have been receiving multiple messages from friends and colleagues who are interested in taking this exam. Thus, I wanted to share my experience on this j...

Study Resources and  some insight

1. Cover to Cover Read --> Sybex 8th edition

[Took two months to read this page by page and make notes. Some say read once and take notes 2nd time, how ever 

I feel to read once and take exclusive notes to save some time for not to come back to reread again.]

2. CBK 4th edition  

[Read weak domains like scan through metho...

Becoming a CISSP has been something I wanted to achieve for 5 years; which then became 6, 7 and finally 8 years. 8 years of procrastination.

Family, kids, unforgiving work; sound familiar?
 

My journey started with a study group which disbanded at work after a couple months. I was determined and wasn’t going to let this be another excuse not to continue. S...
