For those that have successfully applied for certification.

I sat and passed the CISA exam on Sep 21 and the results have been posted on ISACA's site. I've completed the application form and my manager has signed it and the application fee has been paid.

My question is, do I only need to email in the completed application form to application@isaca.org or do I need to add other information in as well? If so what exactly?

Point 3 - Sumit verified evidence of five years work experience est. is this covered as part of the application form were ISACA will contact my manager that signed the form or do I need to provide that, and if so what form would that take?

Want to make sure I submit all the needed information correctly the first time around.

Thanks. ]]>

I wondered why whoever setup this exchange didn't go with AES encryption (possibly being Exch 2003) idk, that's why I wanted to inquire with the TE folks/gurus out there. What encryption methods are you using? if any...or possibly 3rd party software?

Cheers and Hi5! ]]>

Hey guys,

I need to know how I can pass the devops pro certification with no expereince in devops or linux sysadmin, I am coming from a 3rd line Wintel background and I am want to pass this devops cert and land a devops job in london.

Right now im trying to learn some of the tools in VMware workstation, docker, chef and looking at the blueprint but i need some guidance on a good strategy, I don't know anyone doing devops. So only help I can get is online.

Is it possible to pass this cert just by learning at home with no devops experience. ]]>

Expecting better (from a CISSP) http://rejsy-morskie.com/?page=forums/isc-sscp-cissp/129642-expecting-better-cissp.html Thu, 19 Oct 2017 13:45:27 GMT I manage IT operations for a pretty large organization. As it should be, the guy who does oversight on IT security doesn't report to me but we do a lot of collaboration. The guy is also a CISSP.

So he comes up waving a printed email stating that his admin account was going to be disabled and wanted to know what the problem was. I looked at the email and saw the following just in the printout:
  • Address was from "admin.com", not our organization.
  • There was a link to a ".gr" domain (there was no html tagging to obfuscate the link destination in the print out). My organization has a presence in Greece but no IT/web infrastructure.
The guy was going on about "this is what I got when I scanned a document on your digital sender. I think that thing has been compromised."

Asking him when he scanned the document that generated the email he stated "just a few minutes ago". Looking at the printed document, the email he printed was received the week before.

The guy was seriously worked up, he wasn't trying to punk me. It turns out that he had gone into his junk mail to see if he had missed something. He then walked away, came back and forgotten he was there as opposed to his inbox.

My response was that I expected better from someone with a CISSP. Don't be this guy. If you're going to be the security person, be thoroughly engaged in being the IT security person. ]]>

Switch: Vulnerability Assessement http://rejsy-morskie.com/?page=forums/off-topic/129641-switch-vulnerability-assessement.html Thu, 19 Oct 2017 07:20:41 GMT Hi all,
I would like to performe a vulnerability assessment on a "generic switch". So I need to find a list of vulnerability that could be tested on a switch.
The only two item I know about the switch are those:
- the switch implements VLAN
- the switch has an EAP authentication protocol.

Any suggestion ?
Thanks in advance. ]]>

LFCS on 10/19/17 http://rejsy-morskie.com/?page=forums/lpi-rhce-sair/129640-lfcs-10-19-17-a.html Thu, 19 Oct 2017 05:20:33 GMT Am I ready?

Well, this is the first cert I've gone for where I have not done a single practice exam. There aren't any in existence for this cert. That's been a strong study strategy in the past--going over what I got wrong on the practice exam until I have it nailed. I lack that confidence-hype I used to rely on before an exam.

I've been using Linux as a daily home user for probably 3 or 4 years now (whenever Windows 8 came out that was it for me. Windows 10 further cemented my resolve). Not much enterprise Linux experience.

To prepare, I've put about 100-150 hours of study and lab time in over the past 6 months. I'd say about 75% labbing and 25% reading. First with the LFS101 on Edx and then with Sander Van Vugt's LFCS videos on Safari Books.

I tried the official LFS201 and find the material to be very college lecture-like and only vaguely covering what ought to be on the exam. Even coop, who seems to be the course author admits that the course designers and the exam designers don't coordinate with each other when they create. WTF?

I also tried Linux Academy but there are far too many syntax inconsistencies and uncorrected straight up errors in their videos for me. I don't get why everyone loves them so much. Maybe just the LFCS track is badly in need of revision. Maybe it's because that's all there is that's somewhat decent for online Linux training, take it or leave it.
I left it.

Perhaps tomorrow will be a success story. Perhaps practice exam #1. We'll find out. ]]>

Been lurking for a few years, but really never had a reason to post. I have been in Information Security Assurance for 10+ years and Network Security for the past 4-5 years. My current company is "recommending" that I obtain the CISSP. However, going through the first few videos from the official material, I just can't seem to find the motivation. Being that I work in the trenches every day and the CISSP is just management type stuff, I find it boring. How do other do other technical focused guys find ways to keep this stuff interesting? ]]> (ISC) SSCP and CISSP RobbyRob http://rejsy-morskie.com/?page=forums/isc-sscp-cissp/129639-cissp-motivation.html Companies that let you go after training you or allowing you to gain experience http://rejsy-morskie.com/?page=forums/jobs-degrees/129638-companies-let-you-go-after-training-you-allowing-you-gain-experience.html Wed, 18 Oct 2017 23:35:01 GMT I've seen so many companies that will bring people on as contracters for 3 months to a year. In that time frame many contractors increase their knowledge ten fold. I find it weird though companies would invest that amount of time in someone to train them up only to let them go.

Anyway else notice that with the resolving door of contractors. Why do companies waste valuable resources like that. You would think after a company trained someone they would do everything they could to keep that person. ]]>

Is there any way to be able to work on getting ACSP without having to buy an actual Apple machine? I've been asked by my boss to look into getting the certification, but I don't fancy purchasing an actual machine just to get the OS up and running.

Can the OS be purchased and virtualized anywhere? Or are there online labs I can learn from that people are aware of? ]]>
