Re: Certifications: Not worth the paper they are printed on?



Replying to original message, but in a very general way...

All,

Yesterday I was reading a blog where someone with no security experience
whatsoever was grousing that they flunked the Security+ exam. The
blogger also claimed to have over 100 certifications. In my opinion,
that many certifications undoubtedly qualifies this blogger to be the
Poster Boy for everything that is wrong with the certification process.

A degree is just another form of certification. What are those worth?
