I heard all about Isac India from a hr. group and was impressed by their course structure. I did my ICBIS course from Isac. The course is excellent. The topics were well structured with lot of interactive activities. The trainer Mr. Murugappan was excellent. His knowledge and experience with practical examples helped us a lot in understanding the concepts. I was able to get an insight of cyber security basics. It increased my awareness in security and I am looking forward doing more advanced courses from ISAC.

I would like to place on record my huge appreciation and gratitude towards ISAC and it’s superb team of thorough professionals for outstanding conduct of the ICBIS course. The conducting faculty made the entire course routinely simple and thoroughly enjoyable experience. At the end of the Course, I feel extremely confident of tackling all aspects covered during the Course. I would recommend ISAC and the Courses to all those looking for similar certifications.
I  have been selected recently as VP Projects in BNY Mellon. Although the job profile is not entirely related to cyber security alone but the interviewing team was very impressed with the cyber security courses I have done from ISAC, especially with CCIO as it is a very unique course and extremely relevant in today’s world. They have even offered me to shift to cyber security profile after six months in case I’m interested. Thank you
