I have just found out that to become CCSP Certified you now have to have a pre requisite of CCNA Security.
What a load of crap.
I am working towards CCNP, already passed my CCNA. My plan after passing my CCNP was to take the CCSP - now it looks like I would have to go back to CCNA stage and do that first! Even with a profesional certification!
Sometimes Cisco make some really stupid decisions. I have been configuring firewalls of all makes for years, designing DR aswell and feel it would be a traversty to then have to mess around doing CCNA Security before going for the CCSP - even after doing years of work and having a valid CCNP.
Sorry for ranting but sometimes Cisco realy do make some ridiculous decisions.
With the years of experience I would have by the time I get my CCNP I might aswell go for CISSP.
Well done Cisco.
