Oh, I mentioned I took the CISSP exam in an earlier post. I neglected to say I passed!
So, what’s next? I’m not really sure, but I’m looking forward to something new. I know last year I started the OSCP course right at the same time a coworker left the organization which swamped me for about 8 months. Needless to say, I didn’t get time at all to dive into it. However, I don’t feel at all bad about any wasted money as it goes to the same people who deserve it for maintaining/creating BackTrack. I have absolutely no problem helping them out. But I’d like to tackle it again with some actual devoted time!
Longer-term, I may want to stick with the idea of alternating between hands-on, technical studies with courses that are more about book-study or less technical.

Good job man! Congrats on getting your cert. Now, based on what people who don’t have or respect the certification say, you’ll have to decide on your smug smirk of choice. I’m still working on mine 😉

Ooo, that Stanford one looks interesting!
That reminds me that ISU (school I went to) has a small program as well that I can take remotely.
If I had been interested in security specifically when I graduated, I might have been interested in pursuing this at ISU. Alas, I found security only after I was out of school!
Congrats – it’s not an easy exam, nothing beats the feeling of getting your results though!
