    I haven't really been pursuing as I fell into the DoDD 8570.1. I see that you got the IAT I knocked out and you will have the same as me after you finish your Security+. I have thought about pursuing the higher certs and the way to go (at least IAT, IAM areas) would be complete CISSP. I may go for some of them in the CND area I am just not sure about the CISSP. It seems to me like once you get it you kind of devote a huge amount of time to maintaining it and the IAM/IAPM/etc type jobs don't appeal to me to much (oh the mounds of paperwork) and I don't really want to be that devoted to that right now.

    As a last note from the DoD 8570.01-M. As of calendar year 2010 “All IAT and IAM Category positions are held by certified personnel.”

    yup, I just started pursuing it as well, i kinda fell into it. its not exactly a dream job, but like most people, i do it to pay the bills. IA is hitting DoD pretty strong, and its traditionally not so easy to outsource positions that require a clearance so it has some job security. the only thing i can see happening is that, as an IAT, as you probably already have noticed, you do all the work and others take credit for it. THe IAMs i know do a lot of paperwork, and im not exactly looking forward to that as im a hands on technician. thus pursuing mcse and im sure cissp and a degree will help show a well rounded person that not only talks about doing things, but does it

    I started 2 when I was in because it was required. But honestly they give you good theory, but no real job skills.

    Think of it like this you have a business that is well into the millions of people and you need to upgrade the OS for all of the computers. Some factors you may want to consider:
    User training
    Hardware compatibility
    Software compatibility
    Hardening of the system
    Cost

    Interesting thread here since my IT career took a major leap when I went active duty. Of course, that was waaaay back in 1979. I had been working at a commercial bank as a mainframe operator at night and taking daytime college technical and business courses. I graduated with an associate in data processing (COBOL, FORTRAN, IBM Assembler, RPG & BASIC) then got a BBA degree and an AFROTC commission.

    Uncle Sam sent me to HQ Electronic Systems Division at Hanscom AFB in Massachusetts and plunked me down in a Booz Allen office. They were designing and implementing the first USAF Automated Office (Project IMPACT). Mostly word processing equipment but some 10Base2 was installed.

    I went TDY down to DARPA and worked with Dr. Vint Cerf to discuss adopting his creation (TCP/IP) as a DoD standard for the WIS Program (the upgrade for WWMCCS). Cerf's coworker, Dr. Robert Kahn, was one of my evaluators on a source selection I ran for a WIS subsystem contract.

    Like I've told my civilian employers, I've literally walked among giants.
