I'm not familiar with it

by Joseph Moore In reply to CSICI Security Cert

Nope, can't say that I've heard of that one, but there are quite a few security certs out there.
Ones I know of are the CompTIA Security+, GIAC certifications (, and the (ICS)2 certifications SSCP and the CISSP (
CISSP is considered the uber-security cert! The SSCP is their starter security cert.
Myself, I am going for the SSCP at the end of the summer, then the CISSP when I feel I am ready (and when I get sponsorship to take the CISSP test; a current CISSP person has to sponsor you to take the exam!).

There is one other "security" cert that I heard of months ago that I just think is hilarious: the Certified Ethical Hacker, CEH!
Yep. You too can be a certified Hacker!

Good article that focuses mainly on the CISSP, but more generally on other security certs.
