I have been working in the information security field for five years now. I want to know if you guys think CEH is right for me?
M.S. Information Assurance
CISSP, A+/Net+/Sec+, CCNP, CCDA, MCSE 2000/2003
I plan on taking CISM in june and moving up into management later in my career.
CEH is really technical but alot of the stuff I have seen or heard of.
Some advantages for me that I can think of:
1. Help me understand hacking to better defend against attacks
2. Looks good on my resume
3. Interesting and fun
4. Used for internal pen testing on networks
1. Too technical for management type positions
2. May never use the knowledge or parts of it
I plan on tackling this using self study by purchasing two books and setting up Virtual Machines to test.
Any advice? Skip this and just do CISA/CISM/CISSP-ISSMP/Compliance?
