Re: Are you kidding?
I was not familiar with the CSX.  I will add that to my list of certs that I recommend people getting started. Seems like the training would be much more engaging.

CompTIA CSA+
CompTIA have started their new CyberSecurity certification CSA+ from mid February. Anyone with any reviews on that ? Is it worth my time and money ?

Its time for InfoSec convergence
All good Certs, as many others are to the feild (CCNP, CEH), but with all of the splintered technologies exponentially growing there is not enought time, or money for anyone to earn that more than a few of them.  Even though companies today want you to know a bit of ALL of them, for under 100k/yr???  Good article though.

Are you kidding?
Kelly, when you wrote this article, you really should have taken longer than the 90 seconds, or less, you apparently spent on your research and analysis of this topic.  GSEC, Security+, CWSP... really?! :-(  How about CRISC, CSX, CCFP along with a myriad of other much better certs?!  Well, I guess everyone's entitled to one dud, Kelly...  ;-)

  I sincerely hope that your future efforts will be more in line with the quality and value I had come to expect from you through the articles that I have greatly enjoyed from you in the past...  :-)
wait for it...

Re: Missing Qualifications??
This article is on certifications, not education. A Master's would definitely be good, but takes a few years. (If I am understanding correctly what you meant.)

Missing Qualifications??
I know Dark Reading is primarily a US based entity, but how about MSc Cyber security?

I am currently going through mine and a large number of my cohort have done the CISSP as something to do between Modules.

There are a few who have tried to do the same with OSCP however have found that it takes up a lot more spare time to complete.

Surely it would be worth more than many of these certs as it encompasses the whole range of IT security.
