What you'll learn
Are there any course requirements or prerequisites?
Included in this course bundle:
The two most popular certifications industry that are recognized widely in the Cyber Security industry are CISM (Certified Information Security Manager) and CISSP (Certified Information Systems Security Professional).
Certrifications are offered by independent nonprofits, ISACA (formerly known as the Information Systems Audit and Control Association) for CISM and (ISC)2 for CISSP. Certification exams focus on the most current knowledge provide deep, comprehensive training in understanding and responding to information security threats.
CISM is designed for information security managers, the certification emphasizes the relationship between information security and the business. It focused more on management and strategy, and only covers technical topics in a limited way.
CISSP certification, is suitable for a variety of positions, from security managers to consultants. The certification focuses on the operations side of information security and threat response, the tactical aspects of security operations and goes much deeper into those areas.
Once could say those professionals whose goal is to progress to a management level would look into CISM certification while than those who want to stay in a tactical role would look into CISSP certification. This is not to say the certifications are mutually exclusive, indeed many IT professionals start with CISSP to get a better technical understanding and then progress to CISM to get a more top-down managerial look on cyber security issues.
To pass the certificaiton exams you obviously need to have the knowledge, but it is much more than that.
You need to answer the questions from CISM/CISSP point of view, in their perfect world. Understand and answer every question from an IT Security Managers or a Risk Advisers point of view, NOT from an executive or as a techie. Most hands-on techies that fail the certification exam do so because they answer from a point of being reactive, not being proactive.
Most people studying for the certification will use multiple books, video courses, and do a lot of practice questions before taking the exam, this really is the path to success. I would suggest 80%+ of right answers consistently on all CISM/CISSP domains using multiple practice tests before booking the exam.
This course is perfect for the student that needs to get the CISM. Even if you have been doing this stuff for 20 years, Thor has a way of reminding you of that little "nugget" that you forgot about because you don't do it on a regular basis. Highly recommended.
Excellent! I've been in IT for nearly 30 years with multiple certs and they are almost never easy to pass, and the CISSP exam looks to be as challenging as any of them. This being said, this training is better than expected and I believe it's exactly what is needed for exam prep (along with some due diligence and much time taking and mastering practice exams).

Some certifications I let lapse, when I am no longer interested in working in that line of work and they do not compliment what I want to do moving forward. The ones I give up I don’t see as wasted at all, they got me to where I am now, and I am grateful for that.

I am proud to say that I recently passed the CISSP exam and that your CISSP video boot camp series and practices tests played a major role in my success. Thank you Thor! I really struggled with understanding cryptography, Kerberos, and virtualization concepts. Without your teaching expertise I surely would have failed those domains on the exam. Thor has an excellent insight on how to approach challenging questions on the test and a knack for simplifying complex topics.
For all of you out there embarking on the CISSP journey: When Thor says you need to take 4-5 thousand practice questions minimum, make note cards, and read up – he means it! It took me 8 thousand practice questions and many hundreds of note cards Be persistent, stay focused, and enjoy the process. You can't rush this or cram. Thor's boot camp and practice tests are a great asset for you as you pursue the CISSP, I highly recommend them.
I have been studying for CISM since November 2018 but had a gap between my study because of a new job & new country, I had completed various Video series on CISM from multiple channels. But the Thor is simply great, I am very thankful that I have purchased this course, planning for the exam next month May 2019.
Thank you once again, Thor!
