I'm a Cyber security Awareness manager for a Not-for-profit organization. I gained the CISSP certification in 2010 and have been teaching cyber security since 2009. I live and work in the beautiful state of Idaho in the United States.
Hi, I'm Aaron and i'm a CISSP.
I'm employed by Sophos and I'm one of their Pre-Sales people based in Australia.
Currently using my CISSP to help provide deeper understanding of risk within the cyber realm and how to deal with it.
Also starting to explore more offensive security training! Fun times!
I'm new to the community, but I've been involved with IT and security work since 2001. Mostly as a sysadmin and desktop geek. I have a Sec+ cert, which I keep alive through training and events. This next few months I'll be attempting the CISSP test. I see the ISC2 org has published a lot of the focused content for CISSP. So many training experts exist that its hard to decide who to run with. Goal is Jan.
My name is Sheryl and I'm a CISSP.
I passed the exam in September and received my certificate at the end of October. I also have CEH and GCUX certificates. I've never held a job that was strictly a security job, but computer security has been at least 1/4 of my job for over 25 years. I enjoy hands-on work rather than management. I changed jobs this year in search of new challenges, and the new job required one of a few possible certificates. I decided to pursue the CISSP because it has a reputation as being difficult.
My first degree is in Mathematics and I came into the field via engineering, scientific programming and system programming. Although I started out with mainframes and real time minicomputers, my main focus has been UNIX/Linux for most of my career. I like assignments that are hard enough to keep my interest, and I enjoy the detective work that is a large part of systems administration and computer security.
I was well into my career before certification became popular, and like many people from the early days of the open source community certifications weren't a priority for me. I only started going for certificates in the past 5 years, partly because they are becoming important in the hiring process even for UNIX/Linux people, to document my existing skills and show that I can grow and learn new things. I found the CISSP in particular to be an interesting review. There were many things I recognized from early in my career but hadn't used in a while.
I look forward to participating in my new community.
I have been a CISSP since 2008 and recently finished a Bachelors program at UMUC in Information Systems Management with a minor in Cybersecurity. I have a mixture of govt contracting and private industry experience mostly in the Risk and Vulnerability Management arenas. I am hoping to get more involved in the community now and ramp up the certs now that school has been completed.
Hi, I'm Ron Mendell, and I am a CISSP. Currently, I work as a Faculty Member at Western Governors University in the College of Information Technology. Instructing there since 2016, I teach Information Security Courses ranging from Cyberlaw to preparing students for the SSCP exam. And, I hold a Masters degree in Network Security from Capitol Technology University in Laurel, Maryland.
My main interest is in the psychology of Information Security with regard to social engineering and the victimology of users online.
I've written numerous articles on security and Investigation for Security Management Magazine and for The ISSA Journal. Moreover, I have several books on those topics. My latest two books are How To Do Financial Asset Investigations (fifth edition) and The Devious Counselor: A Dialogue on Information Security.
