Security Certifications Are the Way to Go

I read an interesting article this morning over at NetworkWorld.  It seems that while the value of many certifications is dropping, security certification value is on the rise.  For that matter, it seems demand for security related skills in general are on the rise.  For most of us in IT, that is no big surprise.  It seems there is a new data breach scandal weekly, and most of our managers are clammoring for risk assessments.

There are some specific certifications mentioned, like the Certified Information Security Manager and the GIAC Security Expert, both of which I have been thinking about myself, since my boss wants me to delve into the risk assessment process here.  I will be looking into both of these in the coming days.  I believe I have to get in a couple of years of practical experience before I really tackle either of these certs, but it is still something I can set as goal.
