How I Failed The CISSP And How You Can Learn From It

On this podcast episode I go over my Lessons Learned from my unsuccessful attempt of the CISSP exam. What I did right: 1. Purchased the "Peace of Mind" voucher (Basically two tries for the price ofone, or almost one) #1 is why I took some calculated risk during this prep. 2. During the exam I used the Think Like A Manager method. 3. I used the from an assessment exam to identify my weakest areas. 4. I mapped my CISSP morning. (Wake-up, Get ready, and Leave Home alarms) What I did wrong: 1. I waited too late to take my assessment test that identifies your weak domains. 2. Assessment test should have been 100 questions instead of just 50. 3. Did not get to study one of my weakest domains. 4. Didn't get a lot of practice testing in. 5. Didn't practice test enough to be comfortable with clock management during exam. Game Plan: 1. Focuse on weak areas from actual exam attempt. 2. Take assessment test of at least 100 questions to re-evaluate weak areas. 3. Get plenty of practice testing in. --- Support this podcast:

Cyber is no longer the Holy Grail, but it's still a Game Changer!

In the recent years, Tech and more surprising Cyber has started to perform lay-offs in unprecedented numbers. Big tech companies like Amazon, Meta, and Microsoft have made headlines with recent downsizing. In an industry were not too long ago we felt unstoppable and almost dare I say it, "Lay-off Proof". The recent news is hard to stomach as my heart goes out to those that were just trying to make a better life for their family. I have been laid-off twice, and it feels like a gut punch to your ego, and peace of mind. From making the big bucks, and feeling like we were more essential than other employees to being turned on our heads a bit I want to remind us all and to cyber career hopefuls we are getting a dose of reality but remember this, Tech/Cyber is still absolutely worth it, there are not many industries that without a college degree, you can build generational wealth legally creating more opportunities for you and your family. So I will end with this you may take some penalties, and be down some points, but find a way to get back in the game, find a way to get the coach to put you in the game for the first time, when it is all said and done it will be worth it, and we will be here as a community to hold it each other up and give pep talks along the way. --- Support this podcast:
