beginning to study for security +
I'm getting ready to start studying for my security + and I wanted to ask what is the next logical step after completing this exam. I thank you all in advance for your input.
All in all, I'd say it depends on what you do. As a sysad, my next logical step really is to finish my MCSE, and kick it up a notch to MCSE + Security (which adds two tests on top of the original 5
) but it comes with the territory. I also know of a net admin guy who was also voluntold to be an associate IA person (as I was) and he has to go through and get the CCSP designation to do that. Then there's the IA manager we're going to have to report to who has her Sec+, CISSP, and some management level security cert from GIAC (not really sure what that one is) because security is her bag.
