Are Security Certifications Useful?


Security professionals either currently employed or seeking employment are often requested to pass certification exams. In fact, many companies may not even consider an applicant for a position that does not have the "required" certifications.

With this being said, in this post we will discuss the purpose behind certifications, how we should view their obtainment, as well as list of different certifications currently offered in the industry.

RaiderSec Meeting 05/08/2012

Hey everyone!

I would like to apologize again for having to cancel the meeting this past Tuesday. Unfortunately, a class exam overrode our room reservation. However, you can find the slides to the presentation over lockpicking here. If you ever have any questions regarding the subject, please feel free to let me know either through e-mail or in the comments below.

I'm really looking forward to continuing RaiderSec next semester, and hope to use this summer to publish substantial new and interesting content to the blog. Sometime next week, I will post a list of the different things I'd like to cover next semester, but tentatively my goal is to give more hands on examples, as well as take time to look at unique areas of security. Above all, I want for everyone to enjoy learning about areas of security that interest them. So, if there is a particular subject you would like to see covered next semester, or even a subject that you would like to cover yourself, let me know and we'll make it happen!

I've really enjoyed our meetings, and I hope everyone else has as well. If you're here over the summer and would like to get together to discuss things pertaining to RaiderSec, be sure to let me know! Otherwise, I look forward to seeing everyone next semester!

Have a great summer!
