How much would my starting salary be now that I have CISSP, CISA, CISM, Security+, CEH, GSEC, SSCP, and GCIH. I did all this at home because since I don’t have a bachelors degree in Cyber (I have it in Biology), and Masters are pretty expensive… any advice about what position or salary I could get? I don’t have any experience but I’m clearly quite prepared to take on any challenges…

Background: 5+ years of work experience in worked on IT Audits (SOX). CISA certified.
Looking for a certification that can help me transition into more technical areas such as Data Privacy/Cyber (not Pentesting)/ Cloud security.
Completely baffled by the variety of certifications
(CCSK, SSCP, PMP, CIPT, CIPP/E, CAP, CISM, etc) out there and not sure which one to pick given my experience and the areas I want to transition into.

Any suggestions on which certification would be best?

I am working in the cyber field as a new Manager. I recently acquired the certs CISM, CISSP, and Prince2, I also hold a M.Sc.

Did anyone recently pass CISM? I’ve been studying and using the QAE. I went through it the first time getting above 70. The second time I am getting 80+ % in the overall domains but some sections have challenging and odd questions where I would have a lower percentage for that group of questions, in the 70 %.

Would the exam have a mix of easy and hard questions? Are the topics and points in the QAE the same on the exam? Any surprise topics on the exam you didn’t see before?

AWS-SAA question (newbie): I know AWS account is a root account & by default gives user access/permissions to all the AWS services. You need to have an aws account first to then create IAM users to define who they are, permission groups they’re in, and the level of access/permissions they have to a bucket/object for example. So....when the IAM users are added, do they receive a notification with the url to access the environment? Do they need an aws account as well? Confused on difference
