Becoming an authorized instructor

I am interested in becoming an ISC2 instructor. I am unable to find any information on the site regarding what the process is to become an instructor. Can you some advise me on how to get started. Thanks

Navigate to Contact > Training either through this Community site or ISC2's main website.

 

Or click this direct link:

 

https://www.isc2.org/Contact-Us#accordion-96a290048c69416ab3ad87f6c87f8952

 

From there you can find details on who to contact to kick off the process to become an authorised training provider.

There actually *is* a process. *Somewhere* I have the contact info. However,
that is *much* less interesting than being able to make a comment about what you
*really* need.

You need to know all of the CBK. All the domains. In detail. A great deal of
detail. You need to be able to stand up in front of a class that includes at least half
a dozen people who not only have fifteen to twenty years of experience in
security, but are also pretty expert in some fairly major specialties, speak for 40
hours, and not make a fool of yourself. (You also have to be able to handle
having Cisco employees in the class who have definitely drunk the company
Koolaid and simply can't fathom that anything in telecom is an issue.)

You also need to recognize, even if you only admit it to yourself, that you don't
know everything. I don't think there was a single seminar that I did that I didn't
learn *something*.

You need to be able to communicate this mess of facts and protocols without
sounding like you are reciting the phone book. You also need to be able to meet
your candidates where they are (which is sometimes on quite a different planet).

OK, maybe that seemed like a bit of a daunting challenge. I'll give you a tip:
review security books.

Lots of 'em.

By the time I sat the exam, I was already known, at meetings and conferences and
online, as "the book guy." At that time I had reviewed over 300 books in the
security literature catalogue. Reviewed, which means I a) had to read them (all the
way through), b) had to understand them, and c) had to test my understanding by
sending my opinion out onto the Internet. (Believe me, if you get it wrong, the
net will let you know.)

Start with "Security Engineering," by Ross Anderson. It's the best. Anything Ross
writes is worth reading. You should get a copy. But, if you're a little pressed for
cash, you can also read it for free, online:
http://www.cl.cam.ac.uk/~rja14/book.html

Then you can see what your library has, also for free.

By that time you might start to get a name for yourself, and you can start
contacting publishers and asking for review copies. To find the addresses of
publishers, you can check out the reviews I did. Most of them have the addresses
in the reviews:

(If you just want to start out with the best of the bunch, because there's a lot of
[pr0n filter] out there, then start with:
http://victoria.tc.ca/int-grps/books/techrev/mnbksccd.htm )

It's a really good way to make sure you know the field.

You can't have privacy without security, and I think we have
glaring failures in computer security in problems that we've been
working on for 40 years. You really should not live in fear of
opening an attachment to a message. It ought to be confined;
your computer ought to be able to handle it. And the fact that
we have persisted for decades without solving these problems is
partly because they're very difficult, but partly because there
are lots of people who want you to be secure against everyone but
them. And that includes all of the major computer manufacturers
who, roughly speaking, want to manage your computer for you.
