    ive looked at this one before. it looks pretty good - course-wise it shows you how to hack your system, so that as a sysadmin you know what countermeasures to take to prevent that hack being used.

    Its hideously expensive though. and ive heard rumours that you need to undergo a police check before they let you take the course. Its also highly advanced - not something you can take without a fair amount on networking and server admin knowledge, so not something ill be able to sit for a LOOOOONG time.

    Certifications: ITIL Foundation; MCTS: Visual Studio Team Foundation Server 2010, Administration

    Hi Guys,

    The rumors are true for the degree, however it isn't a requirement for the EC-Council Ethical Hackings Course (CEH) - they do however require you to have worked in the IT security field for two or more years. For more info on this course, click here. If you were looking for an alternative ethical hacking course you may want to look here. Sec-1 do offer an Applied Hacking & Intrusion Prevention course, which I believe can also be applied towards a MSc (but that was a couple of years ago when my old manager did that course).

    Both companies do require candidates to sign an agreement where they agree to respect the knowledge acquired and not misuse it in any way.

    Also on the plus side, both these certificates are lifetime certs.

    Certifications: CITP, PGCert, BSc, HNC, LCGI, PTLLS, MCT, MCITP, MCTS, MCSE, MCSA:M, MCSA, MCDST, MCP, MTA, MCAS, MOS (Master), A+, N+, S+, ACA, VCA, etc... & 2nd Degree Black Belt
