Hi Jordan,

I advice you to have a look at www.cramsession.com there is a tool that
Compares certification and gives you an approx of what they are worth and
more info.

CISSP is to me better than SSCP, nevertheless you need 4 years of security
Just to be able to take the exam, which limits the number of participants
Make it straight away more difficult to get if you don't conform to the
For more information I think the www.isc2.org 

See You,
Guillaume LAVOIX

Asunto: Which CERT to get

Hello List,
   I would like to get some opinions on which cert would be better to get.
I know this has been discussed a bit here on the list, but I have a couple
specific certs I mind.  I was wanting to know which would be the better one
to pursue, the CISSP or the SSCP?  Both are from ISC2.  I am presently
trying to get into the security field and have been told the CISSP would be
the best one to get, but it seems to be a bit more managerially focused.
I'm not really trying to be a Security manger.  I would like to have the
more technical skills.  Is the SSCP more technical or is it similar to the
CISSP?  Any opinions and advice would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks.

Thank You,
