    Default CCIE Chapter Two - Security

    OK, OK. So I know I dithered about picking what to do initially. After thinking about each of the tracks - Security does actually make the most sense for where I am in the grand scheme of things.

    So Security is where I am going - I have a feeling the lab will be changing in the next twelve months (or at least an announcement) but regardless of that, I need to do a written exam anyway - so taking the Security written exam is not a waste of time as we do a lot with ASA's at work. I'm still in the same position I was in when I passed the R&S Lab in Feb - but I have many good personal reasons why that is the case. Whilst I would love a job move, I am not 100% in the position to move... yet.

    In the meantime therefore, it is time to get #2 done whilst I've still got the good hours at night to get stuff done (or at least try). Work is a lot busier nowadays but hopefully I can still pursue this.

    So DC = I felt this would be too much of a pain to get the rack time, for now.
    SP = There's no need to be an SP in my company, and I don't even think there are many SP's in Wales where I am.

    So, here we go!

    Good luck gorebrush! I find the Cisco security track intriguing and if you did a journal of your studies I will definitely follow it.

    Good luck dude. Out of interest, with your R&S knowledge still fresh, wouldn't SP be much easier (in terms of man hours and how much you have to learn) than Security?

    Thanks all! I will be documenting along the way yes. As for SP - it's pretty pointless because there are no real SP opportunities for me in this country. However, having said that, if I get through Security and I'm still looking for something to do then SP would probably be it.

    Great stuff - similar position to me, however I probably have a bit of a head start: -

    I did CCNA Security and one of the CCNP Sec exams in 2013...

    I did the CCNA sec a while ago also but work never really touched ASA's - thankfully the new job involves alot of playing with them!!! (on a side note i am looking at the CCSA also)

    Where are you starting with the SEC path?

    Nothing has been announced yet so it remains v4 for the foreseeable. Seeing as the CCNP Security has been refreshed and the CCNA also - it'll only be a matter of time before it does.

    In the meantime - as with any version change, the bulk of the content will remain the same regardless so I'm safe to go take the written exam. Aiming to take that around November/December and if the lab is the same then I am considering May '16 in London to take the practical assuming all is well.

    How will you be prepping for the written? I see that unlike it's R&S IE counterpart, the Security does not have books specifically for the written. I do see there is a long list of recommended books that cover various topics from the written, however it's not exactly ideal to read a bunch of 900 page tomes. I was wondering if one were to go through all of the INE advanced technologies course and are familiar with how to actually do the stuff it covers, if in the course of that you would also be able to answer questions on the written pertaining to those topics.

    I have access to video training through work so will use that, but books I think.

    May well have to get some workbooks too.

    So I need to get on with this. I aim to pass the written by the end of 2015, with a view to taking a lab September '16. There's possibly some very interesting moves that could be made mid '16 at work so I need to get my head down.

    Cool! I hadn't seen this, but tomorrow I start in earnest. I need to get on with it now, properly. I've had way too long a break now, but work and other life pressures have meant I've needed a break for a while. Aiming for written in Feb, lab Sept '16, or Dec '16.

    Here's to it. I've got books ready and videos.

    IPX also has some sale on for the rest of October with 40% of bundles and 2-4-1 rack rental tokens. I picked up the pre-order for the CCIE-SP bundle plus an extra 200 hours (so an 400 hundred hours in total) for just around 750 USD.

    I have no idea what the quality of their SP or SEC tracks are like, but I have heard great things about their DC track
