Re: How to start career in security

While Ketchup brings up a good point that most certifications just mean you can study and find the right answer you have to think like the employer.  To them, it means you have some idea of the topic area and are willing to further pursue knowledge on it.
GCIH, ACE, OSCP, CCNA, CEH, CHFI, Security+

I agree with Ketchup.
MCSE is not at all ENtry Level Certification.
Though CCNA is Associate Level,It also constitutes CCENT ICND1 and CCENT ICND 2 Exams.


I have to disagree with you guys. In my experience you cannot get a helpdesk job without an MCSE. It may be a lot of reading and learning, but it is a basic baseline upon which other knowledge is built.

MCSE may be a complex cert to get to compared to other beginner certs, but everyone has one and if you don't you won't get far. That said, it is NOT a security cert. ...but there is knowledge that it encompasses that is important to have to begin to know what to do in security.
