Attendee’s Praises

"Danny built into our minds the essence of IS auditing, related it to the CISA syllabus, and exemplified it with real-life cases drawn from various literature, current issues and his practice as a security consultant, which not only helped us to tackle CISA exam questions of increasingly scenario-based nature but also prepared us to become a competent IS auditor.  His tips and teaching skills obviously shortened our time to prepare for the CISA examination. – Mr. Johnny, CISA, MACS, BSc(Hons), MBA, MBusSys, Senior Consultant, 2004.

 “Had it not been for my encounter with Danny, I wouldn't have scored 86 at my first CISA attempt. Despite my 8 years of information systems experience, I still found the examination tricky and demanding. Danny's vivid portrait of his security and IS audit experience has dramatically shortened the time I spent on examination preparation. Not only is Danny's training good value and enjoyable, he is also a role model for people serious in the IS auditing field. – Mr. David, MBA, CISA, Senior Lecturer, Oct 2004.

"Archiving CISA certification is one of most remarkable steps in my IT career. Danny was my lecturer of this course. He presented not only his expertise in Information Security but also his strength in delivering what he knows and what he wants you to know. Security never means easy things but Danny makes this topic easy to understand by living examples. He may not be teaching you but he leads you to thoroughly understand the topic." – Mr. Samson, CISA, PMP, Project Manager, Aug 2005.

"The CISA exam demands its candidates possess well rounded IT knowledge from project management, IS security, database management concept down to software development model. To pass the exam, one has to be able to apply these knowledge in auditing situation. Danny Ha has done an excellent job in helping me switch my mentality from an experienced IT practitioner who worked in the IT industries for 10 years into an IS auditor’s mindset. Once the mindset is changed, all I need to do to pass the exam is scanning through the auditor's manual and familiarize myself to the
question CD." –
Mr. Hugh, BSc.(Hons) London, MSc, MIEEE, IT Manager, Aug 2005
