Hello Everyone. 

I passed the CISSP a few days ago Alhumdulilah, and for a few days disconnected from everything and took a well needed break. 

A big thanks goes to the Study Notes and Theory CISSP Facebook group and Luke. 

I remember when I started off and joined when this was a group of a few members, I am amazed at how much we have grown and achieved...

I started my Journey in 2016 while CISSP was composed of 10 Chapters and  250 questions in the exam . 

I took printout of all 10 Chapters from the Shon Harris AIO.  Studied hard in each and every line as well as word and started preparing my own handwritten wotes in two workbooks. I liked the chapter CRYPTOGRAPHY very much and really worked hard to dr...

I passed the CISSP exam on my first try on Saturday, November 2, 2019 after months of preparation and several starts and stops. Aspiring CISSPs have asked me how I did it.

Here are some of the specifics of my journey.
 

Preparation
I initially followed the typical recommendation to read a reputable study guide from beginning to end and then to read it agai...

I could summarize my CISSP journey with one single motto: “never give up”. It has been an intense and difficult experience, but I can confirm that it has been crucial to test my true intention to become a cybersecurity professional and understand the core value of the 3rd and 4th CISSP ethical canons.
 

Yesterday – November 23rd , 2019 – I have passed my C...

Here goes my exam preparation journey debrief:

I started the CISSP journey about 8 months back (with Sybex version 7). Since the subject was vast and I am not great at cramming, I wanted to space it out. Also, I relied on lot more of audio/video content compared to reading books intensely.

My approach was as follows:

Phase 1: Getting familiar with the overa...

I passed the CISSP on 1 Oct 2019!

Wow, what a process.

I began semi-formally studying about a year prior off-and-on. I do, however, read about tech and security constantly.  I started formally/scheduled studying a couple of months out an hour or two per day. Then the month of Sept I shut everything else down (for the most part) and dedicated all time to stu...

My CISSP journey...

I have around 6 years in IT security, but over 25 years in IT (including development). So 10 months ago I thought a quick bootcamp would be the best way to pass the CISSP exam. 6 very painful days, 3 hours and 149 and a half questions later, I realised I was wrong.

For weeks after, I thought about retaking, but the beating I took the fi...

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...
