EC-Councnil Secure Aid

How does a free CEH course sound? Or maybe a free CHFI course?

Well, as luck would have it, you may just qualify :)

EC-Council has introduced their Secure Aid Scholarship Program. Details are as follows:

EC-Council announces a US$100,000 allocation toward an Information Security scholarship fund through EC-Council| Secure Aid™

Re: EC-Councnil Secure Aid

In order to be eligible they would like you to all ready have two years of experience and have one of the following certification, CISSP; CISM; CISA; GPEN; GCIH; GIAC; GIAC; SSCP; SCNA; SCNP; GSLC; GISP;
ISSMP; ISSEP; ISSAP.  Additionally, you need to submit a professional resume, two letters of referral, 500-3000 word case study/white paper on a security topic.

It's a good deal if you have time to kill on a case study.  I'm considering it take the CHFI.

CISSP, GCIH, GCIA, C|EH, Sec+, Net+, MCP

Re: EC-Councnil Secure Aid

This is really a win-win situation.  The white paper doesn't bother me, especially since you get CPEs for writing one.  I am also thinking about the CHFI.

Re: EC-Councnil Secure Aid

Ouch @ (..would like you to have at least 2 years experience)

That combined with the warning that "This topic has not been posted in for at least 120 days" is discouraging to this newbie, to say the least.

Still, if the class does not apply then the class does not apply. Any thoughts as to a beginners course study or a place to get said "2 years experience"?
