    2018? Is it here already?! Here is my plan for 2018...

    CISA
    CISM
    PMP
    ITIL-F
    MS:IT Management or MS:CSIA

    Potentials:
    MCSA
    Cisco CyberOps
    CASP
    CSA+


    Edit: Now that I have written it down, I have to think about it. I am also looking at some smaller certs such as Wireshark, Qualys, Nessus, Lenel, etc. I am sure this list will grow.

    Been out of the cert game for a bit, just started a new job and could really use some better understanding of networking. So 15 years after completing Cisco Academy in high school and not going for the cert:

    2018 Goal: CCENT Feb / CCNA Aug

    Completing that dang CISSP!! Said I would get it done this year but keep putting it off. Should be done by Jan or Feb assuming I pass.

    After that. Probably CCSP. Thinking maybe MCSA 365 too as my company is moving towards 365 next year. Hopefully get into a SANS work study. I just need to get my butt in gear!

    You do not have sufficient external pressure to have the mentality to get it done.

    I'm just thinking he's wanting attention at this point. Unfortunately for him, you don't get points in the real world for being an ass online.

    In 2017 I managed to knock out only one serious cert, so I won't plan much for 2018. If it will be OSCP or CISSP-ISSMP or CCSP I'll be happy. WGU gets in the way too much to keep up the pace of getting more certs.

    Humble yourself. This is a forum on technology certifications, many people here have different goals. No one asked you to comment or criticize their achievements or their goals. I see you disrupting other forums topics lately and I advise you cool it down with your "authoritative talk" trying to bully or boss people around here.
    2018 Goals: SANS Advanced Security Essentials - Enterprise Defender (complete, not going for cert), eCPPT (obtained), OSCP PWK (in progress), SpecterOps: Adversary Tactics Red Team OPS (Blackhat 2k18 ), SLAE (October Start), OSCE CTP (DEC Start)

    I see a lot of people with a goal for CISSP which is worrying sounds like everyone and his dog will have it soon and it will be devalued so much it will be like the paper MCSE's in the past.

    Guys if you do not have the experience please do not go for it, I know you can get associate but you still using the CISSP name and you just a support guy. Leave security to the experienced big dogs please.

    I wouldn't stress over it. If you look at what else those people are targeting, I would say it is appropriate. CISSP is targeting that 5-8 years of direct experience. You also have to remember you are on TechExams. Particularly, in a thread talking about certification goals for 2018, so they can be held accountable. This is hardly a representative snapshot of the IT field in general. I would argue this crowd is predisposed towards pursuing certs at a much faster and consistent pace than you will find elsewhere.

    There are always going to be people who aren't exactly on the same level as others, this applies to all certs. I don't see it as devaluing the cert, if they aren't quite on par with the rest but are eager to learn then who cares? If they just get the piece of paper and then don't continue to improve, then they will fall into the category of "How the **** did that guy pass the (insert any cert name here)?".

    Exactly then the next time they see someone with the certification they think last CISSP guy was useless, CISSP means nothing.

    The CISSP use to mean you were a experienced security manager now it means for the last few years you re-set someones password and run a virus scan or even worse your mate just signed the forms to say you done that.

    The pups need to stay with the Security+.

    That is not even close to an accurate representation of the CISSP. I just sat for it two weeks ago. Even without the endorsement process, the test alone is not exactly a walk in the park. The endorsement process just adds to that. If someone is randomly endorsing people without regard for their actual skillset and background, then shame on that person. They are the one devaluing the certification, not the person taking the test.

    Personally, I am glad that more people are pursuing it. The more people who actually learn and understand the principles covered by the CISSP, the better the industry will be for having that knowledge in the workforce.

    And calling the people here "pups" is a case study in choosing the wrong audience. Unless its three wolves, with a moon. In that case, this is EXACTLY that audience.

    That's great to know. Then you must also be smart enough to have realized almost everyone who put CISSP in this thread also has other security certifications or advance certifications already right? Feel like you're trying to make a generalization but not taking into account the audience you're making your argument to.

    You could not be more wrong, my last post was the complete opposite of generalization and aimed at one person.

    This post confused me then. (which started the little debate) I'll be done derailing the thread further though. Hopefully get my CISSP here in the next couple months!
