Once started, where do you go next? What is the difference between a security professional and an ethical hacker? Do you want a certification focused on forensic analysis or general system auditing topics? Should you be dusting for user credentials or handling cybersecurity incidents? What do all of these roles even mean?
This presentation will help you navigate the path of security certifications from a variety of vendors, including CompTIA, (ISC)2, Cisco and EC-Council. We’ll lead you through a roadmap of the certification landscape, and examine how they apply to industry standards like DoD Directives 8140.01 and 8570.1.
