  • Too funny, I can never find any infosec people in Houston it seems, and here we all are.

    impelse: yeah i know most of the companies in Houston, for some reason everyone wants full time people, but I will double check with them. Thanks.

  • willguibr: It is funny that you mentioned that, it never bothered me, but I did notice all the she/her. I realize the author is a female, but I think it is funny how much I noticed it, and I have to think the reason has to be because there is hardly any female security analysts. Heck, I can honestly say I don’t know a single one personally.

  • Thanks for that write up. I have not even seen this one slide by. The reviews on amazon are great too. Downloading on my Kindle as I type.

    When you guys get the book can you tell me if there are many pictures or diagrams? I know it  sounds stupid but I travel a lot so would rather get the kindle edition, but those are a pain if there are a lot of diagrams and pics.

    Thanks

  • I agree, it is nice to see a test that isn’t just a regurgitation of junk you will never use. Wish I knew more about how they plan on grading it and what the final test looks like, I felt there were a lot of questions that were a matter of preference.

    Man i hear you, I saw this one was coming the day of the two week mark (where you still get the discount) so I signed up that day. Then finally got around to studying around monday with the test on saturday.  My wife can attest to me being a stress case, current security tools and…[Read more]

    Congrats. I’ll be taking it in a few weeks myself.

    Not to give away more more than I am supposed to, but UNLIKE the website tests and study material I have seen, there are NO “Which does NOT belong” questions. I heard they were phasing them out, and they did, cause there wasn’t a single one.  Everything was “Which would BEST” question.

  • DrivinTin replied to the topic Passed the CISSP in the forum Security 8 years, 9 months ago

    Sorry the two year old thinks the laptop is a foot rest, haha.

    I used the All-on-One book and the freepracticetests website. Studied most of the week leading up to the test. and it took 16 days to get the results.

  • This con is honestly going to be the con of the year for me, maybe the decade.  The line up is a Who’s Who of my twitter feed, and all around an amazing set of guys.  We have developers from the Backtrack group, the guy that runs Shmoocon, Metasploit guys, SET guy, it just goes on and on. This is going to be a good time, and should sell out quick!

  • I ended up buying it from Amazon last week, and WOW! We have all spent money on tech books and got this overprices flimsy 100 page book in the mail, that is not the case here.  It was only around $45 on Amazon, and I feel like I honestly just got $45 worth of paper alone before it was even printed on.  The book is close to 1300 pages and is m…[Read more]

    Oh man, here I will admit I am lazy! I am a total ‘nano’ person.

    Haha, you are not a real man until you build your own Linux from Scratch!

    hell_razor: I completely agree about being familiar with Redhat/CentOS/Debian, that is pretty much all you will find, and knowing the ends and outs is going to help you the most.

    Now can someone find a great pic that shows a distro war? 🙂

    Ever heard of learning to crawl before you walk?  Throwing a new user in a minimal install in Gentoo may not be the best way to get a long term user.  I would say that installing any current mainstream enthusiast distro (ubuntu,fc,suse,etc) would be sufficient.  It will allow the user to have ease of use and still allow the us…

    In my opinion if you are going to really learn linux you don’t go with Ubuntu or some other drop in install.  Go grab the min install cd of Gentoo and work your way through the install guide.  Not only will it help you setup a base system, but Gentoo has an amazing amount of HOWTOs and a great community for trouble shooting issues.

  • I have noticed several of their typos and mistakes, but they seem to be getting better.  I think it probably has  to do with who made things. They have several offices across the world, I am assuming that some stuff was able to sneak through unnoticed because of it.

    I have currently taken the CEH and ECSA and plan on doing their LPT program.  Th…[Read more]

  • BillV:  Thanks for all the info you share here on the board.  At this point we are playing the game of will the background check beat the ECSA certificate in the mail.  I am currently placing the spread on EC-C, but we shall see who wins sooner hopefully than later.  🙂

  • SephStorm: yep, in the states it has to come from the FBI and that requires a full fingerprint card to be sent in. 

    Here is the actual application (7.4m PDF)

  • I will add my congrats, and look forward to hearing what the OSCP is like!

  • Please correct me if I am wrong here BillV, but when the new test (CEH at least) comes out it will have some overlap?  So say you studied or took the course for v6 you could still take the v6 test through the rest of the year or for 6months, something like that.

    I well let you know as soon as I apply to the LPT program, I am basically waiting…[Read more]

  • BillV: Thanks, yeah i think it might have been one of your original posts that referenced the extension of CEH that made me decide to just self study. I would honestly like to see them revamp this test a lot if they are going to keep it.  I can understand why it could be useful, it just needs to be tuned.
