Posted: Tue Jan 30, 2007 2:47 am Post subject: Introductions for 2007
I realise that no one has said much on this forum for a while so I thought I'd kick start a new topic and hopefully get the ball rolling as it's great to have the opportunity to talk to like minded people.
I have almost 7 years Security experience (for my sins ), almost have my Masters degree in Security (done it part-time for 3 years) and looking to continue my Law Masters in Oct 07.
I must stress I'm finding it increasingly annoying that even with my practical work experience and degree I am worthless without a CISSP certificate!
For which all I need to do is a weeks worth of work & spend £3000
Looks like I'll have to bite the bullet and just do the certificate - despite my personal thoughts on such "qualifications"!!
Any thoughts? How have you found the qualification?
Please introduce yourselves, be great to get this forum going
CISSP is a good certification. It has rich technical content which is lot relevant/current and is backed by a good body like ISC2. Though it doesnít focus on a particular product/domain/technology, its comprehensive for a general understanding of security.
If you want to have a in-depth understanding in a particular technical field I would suggest you look at SANS certifications.
That said, I think certifications add value only if you can bring some of your own to the table. Good certifications like CISSP help people to start with an assumption that you possess certain skill level in the particular field (this however depends on what they think of the certification, or how much the certification is valued).For someone with good background thatís all what he/she needs as a starting point and this is how good certifications helps good professionals.
