Hello,


I would like to know which is better to have for CyberSecurity an CIISEC which is an academic partner of a Univeristy so we will get free membership, also the same Uni will provide the PRINCE2Foudation exam for free. Or I can get a GCHQ accredited course.

Which is better? I want your opinions

I’ve published cybersecurity papers at respected conferences, never heard of ciisec until now. It makes sense, I suppose, to have a lightweight institute for associate membership then career assistance. Probably, bit like IoP, etc

GCHQ are professionals, under military leadership, they’ve been around for quite a while.

Well, look up what the benefits of this (new to me) cyber institute is? [You mentioned a free exam]

For example, the institute of physics , for undergraduate & apprentice “associate” membership charge £15/year https://membership.iop.org/become-a-member so this CIISEC ought to have similar fees?, look that up.

It depends what you want to do in cybersec, maybe your eventual ‘best’ job needs one or the other... do some reading, and hopefully a sensible expert will break cover on TSR and explain
