    BillV, perhaps you’re right. I shouldn’t base my opinion of ECC on a few isolated incidents. I’ve been reading what other members of this community have to say about CEH and ECCouncil in general…it seems like it’s sort of the ‘industry standard’. Does anyone here have an LPT certification? I read on ECC’s website about their tiger team…can…[Read more]

    I may have gone too far when I stated that I was “anti-ECC”. I obviously don’t have much of a clue at this point, but I haven’t heard very good things about them from friends who have certified with them. A friend of mine was laughed at in an interview for listing CEH on his resume. I looked into getting my CEH cert as well but was disappointed to…[Read more]

    I’m in the same boat as you are; I have some experience with things but nothing to show for it, i.e, no relevant work experience and no certs.

    It’s my opinion that CISSP is just good to have no matter what field you’re trying to go into. It’s very broad and though it’s focused…[Read more]

  • I would suggest looking into the Air Force; they other branches of the armed forces (I’m pretty sure) all have divisions devoted to counter-cyberterrorism of some kind but I think the Air Force has their Cyber Command…I saw something on tv about it: http://www.afcyber.af.mil/

    I agree that you should go for the B.S. in Computer Science. Some…[Read more]

    Thanks for the positive feedback guys!

    Yeah, I was a little sketchy about CPTS/CPTE as well; it’s just that it’s hard to find an affordable cert in PenTesting. Not to offend anyone but I’m sort of anti-EC Council…they just look like a scam. I had considered A+ and Network+, and they’re definitely on my to-do list, but my thought process was…[Read more]
