I would like to share 3 TIPS to be prepared for the CISSP exam, and opportunities for #women to start a #career in #cybersecurity.The (ISC)² Women’s InformationSecurity Scholarship program is directed by the Center for Cyber Safety and Education. Women who are passionate about Cyber Security should apply to the program. The process is simple and a jury deliberates on various criteria. Different scholarships summing up to US$40,000 are awarded, and international applicants are accepted. Share to raise awareness about the topic, and opportunity.For those of you who may not know, CISSP® - Certified Information Systems Security Professional is a vendor-neutral certification issued by (ISC)2. (ISC)² is a globally recognized, non-profit organization providing great cyber security support to the infosec community, as well as a recognition for their skills.Now, on to my top tips!
