Editors’ Quick Thoughts

This is yet another certification tied to training. Although we understand the business model behind this approach, it does limit the viability of the credential. This certification is not well know, but we can tell you that the CERT Organiztion is highly respected.

From the Horse’s Mouth (CERT’s Web Site Content):

The CERT®-Certified Computer Security Incident Handler (CSIH) certification program has been created for incident handling professionals, computer security incident response team (CSIRT) technical staff, system and network administrators with incident handling experience, incident handling trainers and educators, and individuals with some technical training who want to enter the incident handling field. It is recommended for those computer security professionals with three or more years of experience in incident handling and/or equivalent security-related experience.
