After almost 6 yrs of experience in different domains, I have now landed in Information security field. Where my work is nothing but maintain some documents and copy-pasting some articals from new paper and sending them to other colleagues. I thought , it would be better to know more about Info Security field and make future in this as it sounds interesting to me. I have started it last year already 27 yrs old. I bought few books and used google for it and learned basic of C, Ruby and Python. Which I almost forgotten after 3-4 months. I have tried all possible ways to get more knowdege like reading security+, network +, basic ethical hacking books..Joining a onlline hacking course but all in vain as without practical it will not lead anywhr and theortical part will drained away from mind after somtime.finaly I m here... My question are
I decided to go for EC council CEH exam..going to take one more online course as I dont have any practical knwldge.. i thnk it migt help..
could someone please let me know if there is any other certificate which has same or better value than this and reasonable to giv a try.
Sould I still concentrate on programing as I think without practical it is no use...
How to get a job in this field which keep me busy a bit in technical issue so i can learn and apply the techniques which i am using in net.
