Certificate Road Map

Which Certificate is Right For You?

There will always be a debate amongst your colleagues on which are the best certifications to boost your career and knowledge.

Whenever I am asked this question, “what’s the best entry level certifications to get?”, my answers are;

  • CCNA R&S – For networking knowledge
  • CompTIA Security+ – For cybersecurity general knowledge
  • SSCP – For information security best practices

There are many schools of thought out there on this, one source I recommend checking out is Daniel Miesslers blog on the top cybersecurity certifications and how he ranks them.
