So I’m 6 months out of graduating school and just passed my GCIH exam. Now I’m wondering what certs should be on the top of my list for me if I’m trying to aspire to be a Cyber Security/Info Sec Professional.
I’d honestly go with a GCIA way before CEH if your goal is doing defensive security work, incident handling, etc. You’ll find the ability to decipher packets and really understand whats going on invaluable in investigating potential incidents. Oh and bit masking is lots of fun. Really.
What did you need to do for the test? Just answer some questions or was there other parts of the test such as for the CCE exam there is a written and then 3 other parts of the tests that involve a CD, HDD, Floppy.
