How Albert Cracked His CISSP Exam

December 10, 2017

 

Hello everyone, 

Ask yourself: Why do you want to become CISSP certified?

After you have the answer start your journey.

 

Dreams without goals are just dreams. To achieve goals you must

apply discipline and consistency.

 

It took me one year to accomplish this challenge.

 

My advice: Do it at your own pace. We all have different experience

and background .

 

To successfully pass the exam you must know the concept off all

domains.

 

Most valuable domains are 1,7. Focus on them (BIA, BCP/DRP,

RMF, Risk management ).

 

It took me 5.5 hours to complete the 250 questions and I was taking

a break every hour or 50 questions.

 

During my preparation, the main problem for me was the language.

English is my 3rd.

 

A special thanks to Madunix that helped me a lot with all his

unstoppable support, guidance and unique notes.

 

In this journey, I met wonderful people - Milhovitch Yaniv, Dawood ,

Ezra, Faizan, Shalini, Vaibhav, Adil, Tanveer Ahmed and many other

people in Luke Ahmed Telegram group. Thank you all.

 

Golden Rules

1. Remember that you are in a role of Risk Advisor for senior

management

 

2. People are often the weakest link in securing information.

 

How to mitigate ?

 

Awareness, Training, Education

 

3. The Goal of Knowledge Transfer is to modify employee behavior

 

4. Try to make handwritten notes. Write as much as you can.

 

5. Create your own mind maps.

 

6. Read Madunix process guide

 

7. Hard work works 

 

8. ANYONE CAN DECLARE AN EMERGENCY, ONLY THE BCP

COORDINATOR CAN DECLARE A DISASTER (Anyone can pull the

fire alarm or trigger an emergency alarm. Only the BCP coordinator

or someone specified in the BCP can declare a disaster which will

then trigger failover to another facility)
