Hi everyone,

I've been a lurker here for awhile, but this is my first post. I passed my Security+ today with an 852/900, in no small part due to the resources here. Thank you all so much!

I am seeking some advice as to which certification to pursue next. Is CISSP the next logical step in order to bolster my credentials when applying for jobs in security? Is there another exam you could recommend?

Best wishes,

    If you meet the requirements for taking the CISSP exam, and if you are very confident that you can pass it then it should be your next goal.. by all means! I can't think of a more powerful certification in the InfoSec field that allows you to beat competing resume's when applying for a job. Another recommended certification would be CEH.
    - CCNP (Work In Progress)
    - CCNA
    - CCENT
    - Security+
    - B.S. Computer Science (Info. Systems Security)

    Do you have any previous security experience? The CISSP really isn't the next logical step for a newbie.

    Congrats on the pass!

    Depends what you want to get into. If you will be doing anything involving networking the CCNA is good to have.
