Re: InfoSec certification EC/BackTrack?



Which version of CEH are you referring to ? V5 has dramatically
changed since I took it it as V3. Also, the add-on to that is the ECSA
which really completes the puzzle. I also looked at the Offensive
Security book an it;s really well done. Not sure if a beginner would
be lost if he started with that though.

I don't work in security, but I just took the Offensive Security
Certified Professional (OSCP) course and it was very informative. I
learned a lot of hands on skills that I will be able to build on.
From what I have heard from others they felt it was more enjoyable and
rewarding than CEH

Hi List

What would be a good certification for a newcomer to start a career in
InfoSec? I've heard of CEH/ECSA/LPT but then I haven't had great
review about it from the list. The place where we are SANS doesn't
offer any course around. SANS Pen-Test course although is available on
demand, it costs $3500 which is well too much for guys in my
country... I've heard of something from Back Track guys.. looks
promising... but risky too at the same time...

what certification would be most rewarding to get a good job?

Looking forward to your replies.

Thanks
