    Default Targets for 2014

    Hi All
    Just curious to see what peoples targets are for next year?
    Did you achieve what you set out to achieve this year?
    I wanted MCSA Win 7 this year and I'm going for 70-685 shortly to hopefully complete
    I'm looking at ITIL Foundation and 70-410 for 2014
    Regards

    Good luck on the 70-685!! I actually past it this past weekend, it you're good at troubleshooting, you'll pass without a doubt!!

    I put my 2013 certification goals and accomplishments in my signature below.

    My 2014 main goals are: Linux+ & MCSA: Windows Server 2008. If I have more time than expected, I'd like to take the VCP5-DCV and CEHv8 at the end of the year. We'll see how it goes

    I'm pretty much done for 2013, just have to finish up the CISSP (which I expect to have completed by 12/13). Next year is the year of GIAC and ISACA, plan to tackle quite a few of these certs:

    GISP
    GCIH
    CISM

    I did not finish anything I had originally hoped for, but that's OK. Plans change. My only goal for next year is to finish my degree, which will be very tough but doable. Well, that and remove all the wallpaper from downstairs but that's a challenge of patience and motivation, and not of technical savvy. 2015 will be my time for hopping back onto the cert wagon I think.

    2014 Goals:
    CCNP Security
    CCDA
    CCDP (Longshot?)

    And finish my capstone for my MSISA. I have the tendency to make ambitious goals. I don't always live up to them (see: this year). We'll see if next year is less crazy.....

    The only exam I took this year was the CEHv7, which I passed in March. I planned to just focus on my graduate classes, but now my current company is sending me to Redhat training in a couple of weeks and they want me to pass RHCSA. So it looks like Ill be working on that for the next couple of weeks. As far as next year... keep on trucking with my grad classes, and maybe working on CISSP or CASP.
    2016 Goals: GCIH, OSWP - DONE!

    Ahh I love this thread! It's great to see so many motivated individuals!
    I'm looking at doing CWTS Nov, CCNA Security Jan, try to get a BICSI ITS Installer 1 out of Tampa in Feb/Mar, and then considering CWNA, GSEC, Linux+, OSCP, and possibly a Master's program somewhere! Thinking a Info Sec/MBA type of deal, not sure where yet! (Holding out for SANS STI Accreditation!)

    This year was a success for everything that I had on my plate. I finished my BS in Business Administration and graduated in May. Went right to studying for and passed the CISSP in September. Now I am working on the ITIL Foundations and will have that sometime in November. The only thing I won't get done that was kind of a bonus goal for this year is one of the ISACA certs.

    For 2014 I will be doing the CCENT in January (will start studying for it next month after I pass ITIL Foundations). Then I will do the CEH right after that. After that it's CCNA Security, CISM or CISA in June and the other in December. I am looking at starting WGU MSISA in January and if I do, the CCENT and CEH will be a part of that. I always like to set bonus goals that if I get to do then it's just icing on the cake, so that would be either learning Python, or doing one of the more involved pentest certs like OSCP or eCPPT.
    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

    * CISSP due NLT summertime.

    * CCNA security there after.

    * BA in communications sometime during the year (Ive been telling this to my wife this for the last 3 years). I only need 4 more classes, one of which is lower level math, lol!

    I didn't live up to my 2013 goals. Whereas it's not too late and I technically could finish the last 2 certs, I highly doubt I will within these 2 months.

    My goals for 2014:
    CCNA
    CCNA: Sec
    MCTS Server 2008 - Net Infrastructure
    Start on CCNP
    Relocate out of NJ and enter the Networking section of IT

    Should be easy enough considering I already started my CCNA and MCTS.
    Goals for 2017:
    RHCSA, RHCE, LFCS: Ubuntu | Project+ | AWS Certified DevOps Engineer | Learn Docker, Kubernetes, Prometheus, Golang | Improve Python Programming

    I honestly do not remember what my 2013 goals were. I do know they changed due to a new role I took. I am attending SANS 504 training next week with the goal of doing GCIH in December/January. After that I have VCP-DV in my sights. I'm still debating if I want to finish MCSE or keep focusing on security, which is my ultimate goal.

    Hiking and more using the elliptical I just purchased more often. Like Broli mentioned focus on work more. However I would like to find a development certification that aligns with the current software I work with and my career path.

    I think this is the first time in my career that I really don't know what my mid-range goals are as far as certs. Any suggestions?
