Could someone please enlighten me as this happens to be an area that is top on my list as well.

Training Approaches

by jluster In reply to Security Training

There's two basic approaches to obtain security training: certifications or "on the job". Elisabeth is, as far as I can see, an advocate of the former, in other words formalized training with a final "score" and "certificate".

In this area we cansee three different kinds of training: security awareness, security methodologies or vendor specific. Awareness trainings are unfortunately something that is way to underutilized, training everyday employess in the basics of secure and confidential conduct.

Methodology training can be as overrated as the CISSP or as professional as the SANS training units. There is a lot of different training out there, some of them pretty useless, some very good and helpful.

Vendor based security training can be as varied as its vendor agnostic approach. The CCIE in Security is Ciscos flagship in this area, Firewall, IDS and Systems security training should be documented at the respective vendor websites.
