Starting UMUC for IA in January, what to do in the mean time?
I'm starting the Information Assurance graduate certificate program at UMUC in Janury 2015. I have close to 10 years of IT Support expereience (Windows end-user/Desktop Support type roles) and will be attempting to move in to Information Assurance / Cyber Security over the next couple of years. I currently have Security+ and this expires April 2015, so re-taking the test for this is on the to-do list, but what else can I do to prepare for trying to get into IA/CS. Plan is to remain in DoD, so CASP or SSCP is something I'm considering. I'd kind of like to get a "head start" on IA knowledge before starting the program, any recommendations for self-teaching material?
