I have a network heavy background and have always been into security stuff on the side. I've got a few networking certs, as well as a CEH(which recently expired) and I took/passed the ELearnSecurity pentest course/exam.
I was going to go recertify in CEH, but figured it really hasn't done me much good and I may be better off getting something new. I thought maybe CISSP or GPEN, but both options look pretty expensive. I'm confused on some of the info about GPEN and also don't have any training sessions close to me.
The Cisco Security certs looked interesting to me too, but I don't know much about them.
Right now my job doesn't require much security training, other than an occasional security audit and mild penetration testing, but I would like my next job to be more security related.
What would be a good option for my next cert that will help me learn new things, look good on a resume, and also not empty my bank account?
