So the company I just got hired onto will pay for any Security certification and depending on the budget, will put me through a bootcamp if necessary. I'm really not 100% sure which way to go so I wanted to ask for some advice. It's my first pure infosec job, so I don't have a ton of experience, but I'm not a complete newb either. I'm still in my MS degree, but may have some downtime in a month (or I just start next year after I finish) Here's some of what I'm thinking:
CISSP - I want to get this regardless. I think I just meet the experience requirements for this. They may want me to get a technical cert before then but not 100% sure.
GSEC - They've mentioned this one. This wouldn't be a bad cert to get. I can even use my lead's index.
OSCP - Right now we hire a 3rd party to do the majority of our pen testing so this may be something to look at. I have almost zero pen testing experience.
CASP - Another solid cert that I'm leaning towards getting at some point.
Other - Another SANS cert or something is an option.
