SCP Program

By s3cur3m3 ·
About 6 months ago, I heard about the Security Certified Program, which boasts two levels of certification - Security Certified Network Professional(SCNP) and Security Certified Network Architect(SCNA). I have since been registered to take the two classes involved in the first level cert. Has anyone heard anything of this cert and it's credibility in the Security Industry. It is apparently supposed to be a vendor-neutral cert. I have recently been promoted to Network Security Admin. Is this cert right for me? Help please.

It is not going to hurt. It will only help. Security is the big thing now a days. It may even get you more $$$$. But the best thing is that this cert is vendor neutral. So you learn how to secure MS Windows, Unix, Linux, Novell, and I beleive Mac. This is the key!

Thanks!

Yeah, that's the thing I like about it - vendor neutral. It appears to be a good program. I hope that it catches on in popularity.

Just read abotu them all and decide for yourself. No one can tell you it's worth it yet since they're new certs.

Don't forget about the CISSP exam. Security engineers, managers, and CIO's hold this kind of cert...
