    For 2016 I obtained 1 of 3 cert goals (GCIA) and 1 of 2 non-cert goals (MSISA). Not too bad I suppose. My situation at work and lack of budget due to buying a house (completed in September) made it difficult to accomplish the other goals.

    I'm starting a new job in two weeks that will drive the bulk of what I pursue from here on out (will be GRC, management focused).

    For 2017 my goals are:

    GPEN (Studying for now and will be attempting in January. It's more for my personal interest and what I want to be my secondary skill set).
    CCSK (February)
    CSM (February/March)

    CISM
    CISA
    CRISC
    (Thankfully with ISACA's new CBT and open scheduling I can knock out these back to back to back)

    Non-cert Goals:
    Learn Python
    Learn Linux/Bash
    Have: CISSP, CISM, CISA, CRISC, GCIA, GSEC, CEHv8, CHFIv8, ITIL-F, BSBA - University of Florida, MSISA - WGU
    Currently Working On: MS Cybersecurity, Learning Python
    Next Up:​ None
    Reading:​ Python Crash Course

    I am an overachiever. I had no plans to do any certs this year but completed the Sec+ and CISSP (awaiting endorsement) this year thanks to TE and a few co-workers getting me motivated!

    Someone gets the CISSP in a calendar year that's far from average or the OSCP.

    I get your point though and by no means am I belittling people for getting tons and tons of certifications. It takes different types to make this world interesting.......

    I try not to set goals because more often than not, life gets in the way.

    I did my CISM as a last minute thing this year. I'd like to go the CISA in 2017/2018 and potentially the CCSP.

    2017 may be the first year in a while where I don't do a cert. So far I'm inclined to work exclusively on my DSc. If that doesn't pan out I will go for CCSP and possibly GPEN.

    Knocked out CEH less than two weeks ago. My request for GCIA is pending approval and I'm thinking about CISM.

    If I can get into my desired masters program at the Univ of Amsterdam in Sept 2017 then I'll put certs to the side.

    If you don't mind answering, where at?

    Talks of degrees always gets me thinking of going for my Masters, couple years away from actually doing it I think though.

    OK, I'll bite. I'm hoping to get a couple more exams done before the end of the year.

    Start a Master's in InfoSec - likely will take 2 years.

    VCP-DCV renewal, possibly with VCP-NV

    Finish my CCNP R+S exams (illness this year messed up this one for me)
    RHCE
    CISSP - or more likely Associate of ISC2
    Wireless something (CCNA Wireless, CWNA)
    ITIL Intermediate (or at least finish the courses)

    Possibly some more Project Management. Maybe some more Cloud/Virtualisation.

    Still deciding what to do with Windows. I had planned on getting a few MCSAs this year, but I don't think I'm really a Windows person. It will probably depend on the work I am doing.

    no excuse. at the beginning of 2016 i didn't even have Sec+, only A+ and Network+. I knocked out Sec+ in March and CISSP a couple weeks ago. it can be done! i had about 8 years of IT before this and did the A+ and Net+ in 2010 when they were still lifetime. just had to get motivated again.

    set a goal and stick to it. i decided in February that i was doing the Sec+. took it a couple weeks later and committed to the CISSP by the end of 2016. just had to set deadlines

    ?

    I just want to give thanks to all those on this forum. My current IT job (my first one since my occupation change) has been soul crushing. Mainly due to my boss and they way he treats certs and his lack of any ability to train people. It's nice to come here and see helpful people who continually try and help others. So my 2017 goal is to get back on track with certs and being excited to learn new tech.

    Happy Thanksgiving and Holidays to all of you here, and may 2017 bless you and your families.
