    seems with the # of people here who probably took it someone should have won the T-shirt. They should have just told you right then if you had won it or not.

    I was under the impression that it was every 20th person got one and you would know instantly. But they decided they wanted to collect all of our information first and then stick the names in a pool or something.

    That makes sense. I filled out two of these things with CompTia and haven't heard anything back about the T-shirt.

    Does anyone have the feeling that CompTIA might be doing this to fight the recert naysayers? One popular argument is that with Microsoft and Cisco certs, besides being product/vendor specific, you can say recertify by getting a higher level cert from the company. I think I remember something similar in Comptia's policy, but they don't really have a higher level cert for the BIG THREE. So by creating these "higher level" certs, they can get people to recertify, and claim that they are just doing what everyone else is.

    Thoughts?

    They already consider the Security+ to be the advanced one: CompTIA Certification Renewal Policy

    And you can't renew with a more advanced exam/cert from Microsoft. You have to renew each track with the newest version of the exams/certs.

    Like me?

    Yea, I'm basically just going to keep renewing the main track every few years and let the others lapse. There's no point in me trying to remain certified in ISA, Exchange, Hyper-V, etc.

    I think most people typically do the main track and one, maybe two, specializations. It's really not that bad if you're a die-hard MS guy (or gal).

    Default Security+'s replacement

    Comptia has requested SME's to develop questions for their new certification CASP (CompTIA Advanced Security Practitioner).

    CASP

    I really think this is a workaround for the legacy Security+ holders.

    I might go to this. I wanted to get in on the Security+ one but it clashed with my schedule. Maybe I can sneak this one in...

    I think this exam is just to compete with exams like the CISSP and the ones under that.

    Seriously, I'm not worried about it. A lot of people seem to get this as a stepping stone to the CISSP or other higher end security certs. My main reason for getting it was to complete the trinity by the end of the year, as well as get college credit for WGU. I'm just glad I did both.

    This is a joke right? CISSP is a more renown and difficult certification to obtain. The test and preparation is more grueling, and you have to meet prerequisites and you're subject to an audit if selected for one. Not to mention the yearly CPE's required to maintain the certification, and annual fees. CISSPs generally command a higher salary than Security+ personnel by a large margin. Security+ is generally considered a stepping stone towards your CISSP, but it's merely a drop a in a bucket.

    It wasn't meant as an insult to you or anyone who is on the track towards the CISSP or currently holds the certification. I was merely asking a question.

    I know, I was being light hearted in my initial response. No worries, hence why I elaborated more on why the CISSP is more renown.

    Nope but the CASP might be on the same level in terms of difficultly and CPEs. It seems to be aimed at the same crowd (very experience infosec pros)

    I think if they can guard their test questions as well as ISC2 or ISACA, to the point where it is "undumpable" then it well gain a lot of respectability. Unfortunately for most of the popular (if not all) CompTIA certifications, brain dumps are everywhere, thus making the market oversaturate with "certified" people.
