Post Event Release

Over 100 IT practitioners gathered on 26 May 2009 to explore the latest market trend of information security, (ISC)2 Career Path Roadshow – Enhance Your Career in Information Security. The event organized by (ISC)2 and KORNERSTONE was  remarkably successful. 

Two sessions were scheduled, the opening address and the power panel.  Heavy industry experts, namely Mr. Gregory Lo, Mr. Andy Ho, Mr. Daniel Ng, Mr. Henry Ng and Mr. Stanley Suen were invited to unveil the opportunities of today’s information security. All speakers had concluded that learning is very crucial for IT professionals and jointly recognized that CISSP is the Gold Standard of IT industry.  “Taking CISSP is one of the important steps in my career development.  From my learning perspective, I was surprised by the rich content of the CISSP exam that I hadn’t come across before despite my 20 years of experience,” one of the speakers, Mr. Andy Ho said. Mr. Steven Leung, member of KORNERSTONE, shared “New opportunities emerge new risks in today’s ever changing world.  I agree with the speakers that we should get out from the comfort zone.”

Mr. Gregory Lo summed up the seminar with humor, stating that “From the business perspective, networking and team collaboration are as important as technical skills of IT managers.  That is why taking up the training for preparation of CISSP exam is better than self-study.”

Lastly, we would like to extend our appreciation to Careertimes, PISA, iPROA, Hong Kong IBM User Group and Internet Society Hong Kong for their support. Without them, an insightful and successful event with over 100 participants and positive feedbacks would not be possible.
