I'm working on a page that will list those, including a short description and link to their 'home pages'. Anyway, in short:
- (ISC)2 www.isc2.com for SSCP and CISSP
- www.eccouncil.org for CEH and CHFI
- www.cisco.com for CCSP and CCIE Security
- www.Checkpoint.com for CCSA and CCSE
- www.rsasecurity.com/node.asp?id=1261 for RSA CA/CI/CSE
- www.securitycertified.net for SCNP and SCNA
- www.giac.org (SANS/GIAC) for GSEC GCFW GSLC GCIA GCIH GCWN GCUX GISO GSNA GCFA GSAE
- www.comptia.com for Security+
- www.microsoft.com for MCSA and MCSE :security
(this list is not complete yet...)
After Sec+, what would be the next logical step as far as certs are concerned?
I would suggest a technical cert as your next move. The CISSP may be 'tempting' because it doesn't require an elaborate lab setup or specialized equipment and it may seem like an extension to your SEC+. However, technical certs (Checkpoint or Cisco) will benefit you more in the early stages.
Considering I'm getting the degree, do you think it's safe if I start focusing on security related certs? I know employers may like the MCSA, but I don't feel like it will be as necessary if I have a bachelors degree plus 2 years of experience under my belt.
www.isaca.org is another site that may be of interest. It involves IT Audit practices, and the CISA cert.
