Infosec Community »

Cyber Career Forum is a series where members of the cybersecurity community answer common questions from their peers! This week, Infosec Community moderator JDMurray answers one of the community’s questions: What are your thoughts on vendor-specific vs. vendor-neutral certifications? Is there a benefit to one over the other? JD talks about the need for both, and how both play a role in an IT career. From the beginning of the CISSP and Novell certifications, they’ve served a specific purpose on a resume. If you have a question you’d like answered in a future Cyber Career Forum episode, be sure to comment down below!
