Yet again, i have another question on certification comparisons i need some advice on
I am based in the UK and would eventually like to become either CHECK, CREST or TIGERSCHEME Senior certified as these are
the most highly rated security testing certifications in the UK but unfortunately I am unable to do one of them because I dont
have the experience or the money at £1600-£1700 (2500USD) per exam. I am therefore looking for an alternative
certification to help me get into the security testing industry and would like some advice on which to choose next.
I currently hold the Comptia Security+ and GIAC GCIH certification as of last year and am thinking of going after either the CEH
or GPEN next. Unfortunately I cannot afford to attend either course and will therefore have to prepare using self study.
The GPEN exam cost £560 (900USD) and the CEH cost £150 (250USD) which is quite a difference in price but would like to know
which of the certifications would be more attractive to employers?
Any comments appreciated
