Re: Other IT Certifications

@blaytrail

 

In addition to the CISSP I hold the following certifications currently:

  1. CompTIA A+ce
  2. CompTIA Network+ce
  3. CompTIA Security+ce
  4. CompTIA IT Project+
  5. (ISC)^2 ISSEP concentration

 

I previously held, and let lapse:

  1. Microsoft MCSE
  2. Novell MCNE (SuSE/Intranetware)
  3. Cisco CCNP (I passed the CCIE written exam, but never sat for the lab)
  4. HQ/Compaq ASE
  5. Citrix Citrix Certified Administrator

 

I keep more technical qualifications current, because the technology changes.  I want to actually know something about the things I’m setting policy for (in theory).

 

Sincerely,

Old: MCSE 2k3 Security and messaging, ITIL, Sidewinder G2 and a load of other vendors certs none of which are as memorable as the Sidewinder.

 

Next targets: CSSLP, CIPP/US.

Re: Other IT Certifications

I have the SEC + (almost worthless), NEC + (worthless) and the CISSP (I have to say it is the most valuable one of all***********we are being watched***********).  I take the CCNA every now and then for fun but it always "times out" after 3 years.  I do like working on routers and switches so I may do it again.  Find the subject you like and do that cert.  If you land a job because of certs, then chances are you will have more fun doing it.

Re: Other IT Certifications

Ah, but Security+ was an elective for the old MCSE, and was a very easy lift, turn up and do. Whereas the MS exam options required you to have a decent amount of knowledge, there were I think seven exams required in all? The old one doesn't time out either - we can look forward to being Security+ certified in 50 years time.

 

 

 

Always play strengths and interests.

 

*I see what you mean... The CISSP is, of course, Awesome. I'm now two inches taller, can spot phishing attacks through bad actor IP curdling and have mind powers...

I'm taller but I didn't get the mind powers (need a mind for that one)
