Other certifications to be considered

I know that I am barely stared on my CISSP certification, but I am already looking at what will becoming up next.

As I stated from the beginning, I already started on my CWNA certification study as well, however, I will not continue full on with that certification until I complete my CISSP certification in November 2013.  Few other certifications that I am considering are the following.

1) PMP Certification – Project Management Professional (PMP)  from Project Management Institute

2) ITIL v3 Fundamental certification  –  Information Technology Infrastructure Library (ITIL) is a set of practices for IT service management (ITSM) that focuses on aligning IT services with the needs of business.

I believe these certs will add on the my credentials.  The CISSP should help on the ITIL cert since there are some similar domains.

Question of the Day for CWNA studies

Although, I sort of put my CWNA studies on the back burner because I am focusing fulling on the CISSP studies, I still trying to do some simple reviews on CWNA once a day.

The CWNP.com offers a really good Questions of the Day multiple choice quiz every day.  It is a new question every day to test your wireless knowledge.  Check out the link below.

Since the questions changes everyday, when I finish answering the question and get the correct answer, I use the clip to evernote extension in Chrome to keep a copy for future reference.  It is a great way to build up a free question library and a good way to keep your wireless knowledge fresh.

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.
