I'm looking for a little guidance if possible.
I've been living in UK for 6 months and for the most part have been studying my CCIE (R&S) of which I passed last Friday.
Over the course of the last few months I have been looking at work and although there are decent number of jobs with my skills, i'd have to say that I lack in the security aspect to be considered for some interviews.
I'm very much interested in CCSP and most likely CCIE Security (not for a while).
My exposure to PIX and ASA products is fairly limited. But I have worked on both devices.
I'm just pondering how to tackle my next cert...
Since the SNPA exam expires soon (mid Jan) I was thinking of doing that first since it covers PIX firewalls which I think are still used in business, and there is also adequate books/cbt training for it. Having done this, I think that I would have enough knowledge to hold my own in an interview coupled with some hands on experience via rack time.
From there I was going to do my CCNA Security and then follow up with SNRS.
Can anyone maybe give some input on whether this sounds like a good approach?
The only thing that is making the decision hard is the fact that if I do the SNAF exam and then just do the SNAA exam then I earn the Firewall specialist certification. But I dont know what books would be best for acheiving this...
If anyone could share their views I would really appreciate it.
