Now the training budget isn't huge so I may have to home study, which doesn't bother me, as long as they pay
I'm CCNA/MCP trained and have about 7yrs in IT, currently about halfway through, and taking a break from, a BSc in IT/Comp Sci. I've been interested in computer security for about as long as I've been in the IT trade, but haven't really studied it, just picked up books, read tutorials and played with various "l33t skillz" websites. I'm not looking for something that will get me a new job, just a stepping stone to more advanced qualifications that might.
I took a quick look at test questions for the CompTIA Sec+ and think I could sail that with only a little bit of study, but the pen test exams seem a bit more hands on.
How do the CEH and CPTS compare to Sec+? Are there any other certs people would recomend taking?
Oh, and I've got to be able to get it here in the UK, I don't think work'll shell out for plane tickets.
Any views would be gladly taken into account.
I was going to tack this on to an old thread, but it suggested I start a new one as it was ancent, so here are the answer to the questions asked in that thread:
Aim for Management or stay Geek? - Geek! all the way!
Networking/Servers/Clients? - Everything and anything (see above)
