Information Security Management is critical in today’s IT industry. Many technical applications such as Fintech, Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) and Data Centre require good information security control and practice. International qualifications such as Certified Information System Auditor (CISA) and Certified Information System Security Professional (CISSP) are highly regarded and recognized by employers.
Dr Walter Fung, the workshop instructor and Teaching Fellow of COMP, reviewed the nature and scope of the examinations, qualifications and requirements for being fully certified upon gaining relevant work experience. Various industry practitioners and recent graduates who have attained CISSP and CISA were invited to share their experiences and tips. They also explained the technical details, modules and sample questions under different scenarios.
Covering major technical topics, simulation and sample exercises, the workshops successfully guided the students to understand what the certified qualifications are, and enabled them to obtain practical knowledge and helped them to have better preparation for the professional examinations, enhancing their technical competencies and overall employability.
