I know someone who is an Emergency Management Manager for a state county, and he pointed me to this online learning resource from FEMA and Texas A&M. I'm currently going through Information Security Basics course. So far it looks like pretty good stuff. It feels a lot like the Security+ only deeper. Once you complete the course you get a certificate. I think it will be some great review material and maybe I will learn something in the process :)

    Actually, this class is feeling CCENT / Security+ material. Not bad at all.

    Is this free? I don't see prices listed anywhere.
    Decide what to be and go be it.

    Could this certificate be a talking point at an interview?

    Could you mention that you would like to give the employer a link for the end user security training, to help them train their workers? Could you mention this certificate in an interview? I saw there was an end user security course. I’m always trying to think of a way of giving myself an edge. I’m afraid to put this on my resume, because it might throw potential employers for a loop. I used to put my HDI cert on my resume, but then I got tired of giving a 2-5 minute speech of what HDI is , and what they did as an organization. Furthermore, I had to explain my cert and that since it wasn’t proctored, I wasn’t sure of the validity of the certification.

    I just wanted to say that certificate looks sweet. I think it's the homeland security logo on the certificate, but it looks alot cooler than the comptia certficates. Thanks for sharing rep given.
