I'm the first to admit that I'm all over the place with my certification plan. I think a lot of my issues are because I'm trying to focus on security, and there's so many different areas to it.
By day, I'm currently a network engineer (sr network analyst, by title). I spent a number of years as an MS Exchange/Office365/VMware (server/VDI) admin.
I was working on my CCNP Security, I passed 1 of 4 exams. I took a break from that, and now started studying for the CISSP. Why did I do this? Mainly because it's highly recognized and it looks good on the resume. However, something keeps drawing me to the ISC's CCSP certification (and not because the CCNP Security was previously CCSP ).
I'm still very interested in Network Security, but cloud is also interesting and could be good for the career. I'm not quite clear if those two areas typically tie into a single position.
I'm on the fence, not sure if I should I stay on course and stick with CISSP, Switch to CCSP, or forget them both and go back to CCNP Security.
