    Default Security Professional Cert

    Hello,

    I want to take SEC+, CEH and OSCP but I need help about the sequence. Would be the sequence:
    1) SEC+
    2) CEH
    3) OSCP

    I work with penetration testing but I need these certs.

    Thanks

    You cannot do this really in another sequence.
    If you pass OSCP first, you may skip other certs

    I notice that employers will ask for CEH but want someone with OCSP skills. OCSP is great but if you can get both even better.

    Skip security+.

    Lots of security certifications, yet the more I learn, the further I have to go...

    Security+
    CEH (kind of like Security+ with a pentesting focus) (not very valuable to infosec pros "in the know")
    OSCP

    Knowing why you believe you "need" a specific cert would help people give the right advice.

    Do you plan to continue pentesting? If so then just go for OSCP. Someone that is already doing pentesting taking Security+ and C|EH seems like taking steps backwards, but should be very easy.

    You need to get used to providing details, understanding your needs helps with the advice. Sec+ and CEH provide little for a pen tester so what kind of role are you looking for?
