    Hows it going?

    I would say that ccna is important to show at min. that you know what the hell a network is and how they work, its not really a security cert. I think its an important cert but not to show security awareness, For that part I would recomend looking into the Cissp Cissp THis cert is the defacto right now, [gloworange]( i take this one week from sunday yippy!!!) [/gloworange]

    They also provide CONCENTRATION EXAMINATIONS which work hand in hand with the cissp
    Basically giving you expertice in either hands on work or being a Info Sec Mgr.

    ISSAP: Information Systems Security Architecture Professional, and
    ISSMP: Information Systems Security Management Professional

    what about Security+ is that worth bothering with?
    Romans 7:14-20
    14 We know that the law is spiritual; but I am unspiritual, sold as a slave to sin. 15 I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do. 16 And if I do what I do not want to do, I agree that the law is good. 17 As it is, it is no longer I myself who do it, but it is sin living in me. 18 I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out.

    The security + is an easy easy cert. It gives some insight on some security related issues but honestly i would say that it should be geared towards home users..... I wouldnt have bothered cept i didnt have to pay for it :-D
    I have it and its nothing special....

    Sans offers some pretty awsome certs also...
    I toor\'d YOU!
