I’m currently employed as a Cybersecurity Consultant. I’m helping clients build and manage their information security programs.
I earned the MSISA from WGU last year. I also earned the CISSP.
My long term goal is to eventually transition from Consulting to a CISO position (and potentially a CIO position much later in my career).
CISM (studying for now)
EC-Council CCISO (2019)
I don’t think an MBA will be neccesary to transition to a CISO role down the road, but it could prove to be helpful if I want to transition to a CIO role in the next 15 to 20 years.
I’m considering the following universities (online programs):
* Western Governors University: MBA IT Management
* Southern New Hampshire University: MBA IT Management
* Morehead State University: MBA
* Eastern Kentucky University: MBA
* Murray State University: MBA
I would appreciate feedback from current (and aspiring) CISOs.
Education: MS-Information Security and Assurance from Western Governors University, BS-Business Information Systems from Indiana Wesleyan University, AAS-Computer Network Systems - ITT Tech,
