Re: Certification plans for 2015?

Well, I said last year that my goal was my degree. I'm graduating in 4 weeks with a Bachelor of Information Assurance. So I guess I met my goal. If I get converted from contractor to employee (which my management is trying to do), I've been told I need to take some SANS Courses.

Cert plans for next year (out of pocket):
CISSP
Locksmith cert.

Maybes:
OSCP, CNW[AP]

SANS (If work pays):
GPPA or GNFA

And hoping I can start a Masters Program in the fall, but I haven't decided on what one yet.

wow, I seem to be shooting for the stars

Re: Certification plans for 2015?

Ok, after my CISSP - I have to pass it.

OSCP - Got the latest training, I need to concentrate and sit for the exam, any way 24 hours straight, LOL
MCSE - My supervisor keep asking me for this.

Re: Certification plans for 2015?

I'm doing EnCase training in 2015 and am going to try to schedule Forensics I, II and the EnCe review so that I can test for the EnCe before the end of the year. I'm also trying to finish my master's degree. I'm not sure if I'll graduate in 2015 or 2016; it depends.

rattis: Congrats on the degree!
BS in IT: Security, CISSP, CEH. MBA in progress.

Re: Certification plans for 2015?

If I remember correctly my plans for 2014 included the CCNA Security and the GCIH. I completed the GCIH which was a great accomplishment. The CCNA Security is no longer on my radar for a number of reasons.

I also plan to attain the GPEN certification by the end of this year, but it could be tight. I may have to put it on the list for 2015. If I feel like I can do it I may attempt the OSCP next year.

Re: Certification plans for 2015?

I completed the GCIH in the Spring and did study Python like I planned. I have to get the GPEN certification finished early next year and then I'm going to circle around to studying Python and C. Other than that, I'm planning to purchase some computer hardware and put together a pen testing lab ;)

@rattis: Congratz on finishing your degree!

Re: Certification plans for 2015?

2014 : GPEN, GSEC, GCIA, GSE written

2015 : GSE, ARES, and ... OSCP (I did the training in 2011 but I never sat for the exam :D )

If I will have enough money, and motivation ... maybe one of the recon.cx trainings

Re: Certification plans for 2015?

Well, just signed up for the SANS FOR408 OnDemand course. Material should arrive next week, and possibly doing GCFE certification around May.

Also paid for the upgrade PWB 3 to PWK course material, as I also didn't do the exam. Will look at that after the SANS course, and probably buy some lab time.

John, would love to hear your FOR408 opinions.

Alucian, how did you like the GSE Written? Can you tell us anything about it?
