    So is CCSK a certification or just a certificate? Or is it called a certificate but considered a certification?

    Pretty sure "a certificate but considered a certification"

    Salary Survey 2016: An all-new Salary Survey 75 - CertMag

    Not sure where this survey got their results from but I know I would be bringing down that average.

    Pretty much the easier and less known cert to ISC2's CCSP.

    The survey you posted isn't by exam difficulty in my opinion. The GCIH is much easier then the CCNA, but it's 7 places and $5,000 higher on the survey. I guess the fact that the price point is what makes the difference. You just need $295, a couple of good books and some quality study time to pass the CCNA. The GCIH on the other hand, is a good $6,250 investment, in addition to studying. The CCNP Security is only listed two spots higher than a CCNA, despite being considerable tougher then the CCNA, 4 more exams, but is still less than a 1/3 the cost of the GCIH.

    Wasn't meant to show difficulty at all. Just showing him that is considered a "certification"

    Thanks! I have wondered this because it is confusing sometimes. For instance the ISACA “CSX Fundamentals Certificate” is by all accounts not a certification, yet the CSA “Certificate of Cloud Security Knowledge” is a certification.

    The easiest certs will always be those on topics you have experience in.

    Outside of that, anything that's online/unproctored. Everything elsse depends on the persons' skills and experience.

    That set of certs covers a very broad range of topics. Typically, people who want to be developers don't want to be network engineers who don't want t be project managers. I'm a fan of people starting off as generalists then moving on to a specialty but generalist in things that work well together, not whatever stuck to the wall after you threw the entire list at it.

    Start with a couple of MS exams (like Server 2012/2016 and an Infrastructure) then move on to something supporting the virtual environment (VCP or a MS Hyper-V course) then move on to the CCNA. Once you have that broader understanding of the environment, figure out what you've liked and the direction business is going in your area to see where you might want to start focusing. It could be by the time you reach this point that you'll want to dive deep into storage or Citrix or maybe become that project manager.
    2017: CCNP (done), FITSI-M (done) CCIE Written
    2018: CCIE R/S
    2019: VCP (DCV/NV), OSCP
    2020-1: MBA

    Any Qualys test/certification. Listen to the presentation, take the exam and wait for the pass. Really, this is a easy as it gets. Free too! I have nothing against Qualys and have been quite satisfied with the quality of the findings provided but the exams are a pittance.
