Security Certification Roadmap

Just started working on it, will try to keep it as updated as possible when time allows. *NOTE* JUST STARTED IT today so its not even 1/3 of the way done. I may add study guides, etc. like I said though, as time allows

Re: Security Certification Roadmap

There's no management section yet? No CISSP or CISM?

C'mon, where are your priorities? ;)

Seriously though, that's a good start, J.

Re: Security Certification Roadmap

Working on the others when time allows, like I said just started... I will likely add links directly from a cert to the proctors site, then tree it to suggested reading, etc.

Re: Security Certification Roadmap

As much as I write, I hate writing. A book from me would be incoherent since I come from different areas of security. I actually started a book two years ago but it was so scattered I gave up. ;) Besides the things I would write about would likely get me put on watchlists or some other form of trouble

ADDED (forgot to mention):
Updated the page with links... Still working on it

Re: Security Certification Roadmap

I know you are not done (so I am almost tempted to not say anything but I want to throw this out there). Where would you put GCIA? IMO that should be under a "network security" (the same thing with GCFW and GAWN).

You tree makes networking look very boring :) :) :)

Re: Security Certification Roadmap

I would place (likely going to) under Incident Response and Forensics as thats where it belongs ;) I haven't started on Network Security yet because I am likely going to do something NO ONE WILL LIKE and that is to post information relevant to CCNA/CCDP which teaches A LOT about networking from the protocol on up and includes security. While it is vendor specific, those two courses will teach you more about NETWORK security than the GCIA would. A network to me are OSI layers 1 - 4 and function outside of Windows/Linux, etc. Networking will also be forked into specifics, likely Firewalls, IDS/IPS and "Broad" for other certs like SANS' GCED, etc. still working on it.

Re: Security Certification Roadmap

great but you missed the recent offensive-security certs, OSEE OSWE

and there're also Vivek certs from (SecurityTube.net) the python course is very important to be mentioned as an entry course.

i would also like to add Wireless section (Wireshark Cert, SecurityTube.net Cert, Offensive-Security OSWP) ..

keep going  ;)

Re: Security Certification Roadmap

Dont forget the Security University and Mile2 certs. Depending on how full you want to have the tree.

also the International Association of Computer Investigative Specialists (IACIS) cert for forensics.

Not willing to bother with Mile2 and this is why:

* Certified Penetration Testing Engineer (formerly CPTS)
* Certified Penetration Testing Consultant (formerly old CPTE)

Which would you perceive I should post? CPTC

They are a bit too scattered for me to browse through their information. I will go over Security University's offerings, but they too are a bit scattered for me. I will check out IACIS however, my list is based on a few criteria: I have heard about it, read about it, it is in demand (visible in say a Dice.com or Monster.com search) and it makes sense to me. There should be no reason why I would have to go to a "certification" giver and try to make sense of what they're offering. Under: http://mile2.com/mile2-courses.html they state one thing, then on the other page they state another: Course: CPTE followed by.... "formerly old CPTE" which is it? Let them sort it out.
