About: Min

Hello My name is Min. I  received my bachelors in Electrical Engineering from Auburn University and my masters in Information Assurance from Iowa State University.  I am also a Washington State licensed Professional Engineering (PE) in Electrical Engineering.  I was a formerly Certified Cisco Network Associate (CCNA).  But all that is irrelevant…. since I am focused now more on learning challenges. Feel free to leave any comments.

Welcome to Certification Circus

This project or goal has been a long time coming.   After many years in the telecommunications and information security business, I finally decided to get back in to re-upping my certifications and improve my technical credibility.  This website will capture what I’ve learned each day and highlight some key points and tips to help myself and others who are also trying to get their certifications.

So the first two certifications that I am planning to obtain are the CWNA and the CISSPmovie Petak Umpet Minako 2017 streaming

CWNA (Certified Wireless Network Administrator)  – This seems like a strange certification to obtain, however, since I’ve been working in the wireless consultant business for over 6 years now, it is good to have some more detail on the 802.11 based wireless technology.   The good thing about this certification is that it is vendor neutral.   I find that vendor specific certifications are good but they are very limiting in opening up to the different options that are out there.  This certification is vendor neutral and talk more about the technology and best practices.  I know I will probably have a better explanation of this certification by the end of this process. The follow up to this certification is the CWNP (Certified Wireless Network Professional).

The second  certification that I am planning to start studying in the next few weeks is Certified Information Security Systems Professional (CISSP).

CISSP is another vendor neutral security based certification.  I think since I’ve got my MS in Information Assurance, the CISSP will galvanize my knowledge and high light my expertise.
