Re: Starting up as a security consultant



Hi Idowu,

You can consider attaining CISC i.e. Certified Information Security
Consultant program from Network Intelligence (India) Pvt. Ltd. (NII
Consulting).

The Certified Information Security Consultant is a program designed to
make you an expert consultant in the domain of information security.
While most certification programs are geared towards purely technical
know-how, the CISC also arms you with the necessary consulting skills
in order to help you make your mark in this exciting field. The best
part about the CISC is the fact that you get hands-on practical
training on live projects. It covers a wide variety of topics,
starting right from the basics, and then leading up to compliance
standards, and even forensics and cyber crime investigations.

Best of Luck !!

Hi All!

I will like to start up as a security consultant. Be on my own. I
have "played" (work) with linux for about 5 years now. I have
installed, upgraded kernels, setup network, "played" with IPtables,
done some pentesting with a box, gained entrance into other systems
from the box, wrote some scripts with perl and python.

But I feel there is need for a formal training or framework for me to
base my security consultancy on. Any Ideas please!
