What certifications are available for infosec professionals?

In this episode of the Exploring Information security (EIS) podcast, I talk with Ralph Collum of Training Concepts about the certifications available for information security professionals or those looking to get into information security.

Ralph (@Optimus__Prime) holds many infosec related certifications and is also an instructor of courses meant to help people get certified. Certifications are not a finish line for professionals. They are, instead, more of starting point for professionals. Getting certified means that a certain level of knowledge has been achieved.

In this episode Ralph and I discuss:

  • Why someone should get certified?
  • What certifications are available?
  • How to get certified
  • When should someone get certified?
  • Which certifications are the best?
