Dear [techgoddess]:<br><br>
Congratulations! We are pleased to inform you that you have passed the Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP®) examination - the first step in becoming certified as a CISSP.<br><br>
Don't worry, I'll still talk to you all. <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif">

Thanks, all!!<br><br>
Razzzzzzzz, just be aware that some of the questions are kind of, er, ambiguous. Don't waste too much time on questions that don't make sense, because I swear there are some that have no right answer, or have more than one right answer.<br><br>
Make sure you know a bit about encryption, particularly the differences between the different types of encryption and authentication standards. Be comfortable with the continuity planning and risk assessment process. Know your way around the 7 layers (A Priest Saw Ten Nuns Doing Pushups, or All People Seem To Need Dominos Pizza). Understand the various types of attacks, and how they work, and how to protect against them.<br><br>
Mostly - get plenty of sleep, and eat a good breakfast! <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif">

Excellent advice! Thank you. I work for a security vendor, so I've got the encryption/authentication/OSI down. It's the stuff that people with real jobs (like you) do that I'll need to brush up on (risk assessment, continuity planning, etc.).<br><br>
Congratulations again!
