I'm humbled to announce, that I have just passed the EC Council Chef Information Security Officer exam and become EC Council CISO certified.

It was a hard exam with 250 questions and 4 hours’ time. Even though , I have a master’s degree in the Information Security Area and completing my PhD and working in the field answering 250 questions at one go was not easy at all. Yes, I passed with 95% but , after few hours I started to think twice my answers.

EC-Council’s CCISO Program has certified leading information security professionals around the world. A core group of high-level information security executives, the CCISO Advisory Board, contributed by forming the foundation of the program and outlining the content that would be covered by the exam, body of knowledge, and training. Some members of the Board contributed as authors, others as exam writers, others as quality assurance checks, and still others as trainers. Each segment of the program was developed with the aspiring CISO in mind and looks to transfer the knowledge of seasoned professionals to the next generation in the areas that are most critical in the development and maintenance of a successful information security program.

The Certified CISO (CCISO) program is the first of its kind training and certification program aimed at producing top-level information security executives. The CCISO does not focus solely on technical knowledge but on the application of information security management principles from an executive management point of view. The program was developed by sitting CISOs for current and aspiring CISOs.

In order to sit for the CCISO exam and earn the certification, candidates must meet the basic CCISO requirements. Candidates who do not yet meet the CCISO requirements but are interested in information security management can pursue the EC-Council Information Security Management (EISM) certification.

At Microsoft Tech Ed Australia 2008 out of many sessions and Speakers my session was evaluated and selected as THE BEST session. Today at the time of writing this article ( September 2014) nearly six years has passed, since then I have attend and spoke in many Global Conferences, having an award like this under your belt, helps you to get invitations much easier. Probably this is one of the most important reasons why this award is very very special to me. And this is also the reason why I am blogging one more time about this award.

Thank you for everyone who rated my session the best, and helped me to gain my ideals faster. As always I will work very hard, and make sure to be the one that you can trust, learn while you enjoying the content.

As Microsoft Management Summit 2011 approaches (March 21-25, Las Vegas), MSPmentor is starting to hear more chatter about Windows Intune -- a SaaS platform that may allow MSPs to remotely manage Windows 7 devices. Admittedly, Windows Intune won't dominate the Microsoft conference. But the event will likely allow partners and customers to more closely evaluate Microsoft's progress with the Windows Intune beta. Here's why.

Microsoft will focus at least two conference sessions on Windows Intune. The first, hosted by Microsoft Group Product Manager Alex Heaton and Program Manager Nilesh Bhide, will show attendees how to set up Windows Intune to offer software updates, malware protection and asset inventory to networked Windows 7 PCs that can be located anywhere. The second session, hosted by Erdal Ozkaya, co-founder of CEO IT Training in Australia, will feature real-world demos showing how beta customers currently use Windows Intune.

Generally speaking, I think Microsoft will mainly promote Windows Intune to corporate IT managers when the SaaS service officially debuts sometime in late 2011. But Microsoft is quietly exploring how Windows Intune can potentially benefit managed services providers (MSPs) and VARs. Indeed, Microsoft quietly attended ConnectWise IT Nation in November 2010, meeting with selected MSP industry influencers to talk a bit about the Windows Intune beta.

Assuming Windows Intune works as advertised, I think it may catch on with some selected MSPs. But for broad channel success, I think Microsoft has to stretch Windows Intune beyond its Windows 7 management focus to incorporate non-Windows devices -- including Apple Macintoshes.
