Alternatives to Getting Busted
I agree that a degree in INFOSEC alongside CCNA or MSA, is the only way to get a job. Employers LOVE INFOSEC qualifications, but won’t hire you unless you have the old tried and trusted CCNA or MCSE, MCSD. Certifications are the key ingredient. I’ve seen Phd’s in INFOSEC who are unemployable… give those same Phd’s a CCNA and they’ve got 10 jobs. The combination is unstoppable. All Universities should make year 1 and year 2 students sit their CCNA exams as part of the course.
