March 2014 two years later, still never got the class. Don did do right by me, but if this is how they treat members of the info sec community not show how they are still in business.

What have you tried from your research already, such as things found on good? Don’t want to share something that you have tried already.

There are rumblings out there about his ethics, one such thing is the “borrowing” of security related training material and calling it his own. Not saying its true or not but might want to do some research before signing up.

Just some questions for you so that any suggestions are not redundant on what you already seen. Any education on the subject self taught or education institutes? Any books or online resources you have already read?

I was going to post this morning about the OSCP, contacted them yesterday and got this:
Dear El33tsamurai (edited :-D)
Thank you for contacting us.
Unfortunately, we do not have a release date for the upgrade from BT to Kali. We estimate that it will be completed before the end of 2013, but there is no guarantee.
Any updates will be posted in our blog at http://www.offensive-security.com/blog/, so stay tuned!
Keep us updated if you require additional information.

The issue with scopes for most security professionals at the moment is that the analysis piece is rarely ever done,
some random paper-based security manager
who doesn’t really understand the techology, network or threat actors defines the scope, which is then just repeated ad-hoc every single year, making the entire testing next to useless.
Above is the biggest issue underlined and in bold.
We have 3 ways the security manager can go:
1. Understands current information security needs, he/she keeps up with info sec on a day to day basis. Pretty much an all around info sec manager that you want.
2. A person that has been working info sec since the 80 to 90’s, no don’t me wrong these people can fall under option 1 but some of them do not. All they try to do is what they learn in the early parts of their info sec career, which they try to apply in today’s world ??? . Which causes issues like “who doesn’t really understand the technology”, their biggest problem is they think they know everything about info sec (we all know, you can never know everything about info sec and when you do think so, you are in the wrong career!), they are in charge, and last but most often to happen they don’t want to listen to anyone under them, or when they do they take the credit for the idea.
3. The big company wants a “manager” in charge of the department. time and time again I have seen people that know nothing about info sec but become info sec managers because they have the management experience.
By no am I saying this is what happens 100 percent of the time, and not trying to upset anyone but this is what I have noticed.
