I got involved in cybersecurity because of my line of work. I started my career from Telecommunications then I moved to Network services. Later, I understood the need to protect the network that we set up for customers. That’s how I landed up in network security.
It was the reputation of the EC-Council as a recognized certification and training organization that caught my eye. The Certified Chief Information Security Officer (CCISO) came with outstanding courseware and training material. They were rich in content and easy to understand. The notes and presentation slides that I received with this certification course is very helpful for my day to day basis role as a CISO.
My advice to people interested in cybersecurity is that you should be ready to learn the basics – How computers operate and communicate must be well understood before moving to the security aspect of it. You must also be ready for continuous learning.
