Re: Master's degree in Security + CCIE Security posted 10/09/2007

See, if I will start pursuing CCIE security, this means I will almost spend
around 16 months, this is because I want to study each and every thing that is

I did not say that I want to choose either academic security or CCIE
Security, I want to get them both.

The employer could differentiate between
an employee who has a CCIE and someone else who has Master degree + CCIE that
falls under the same category.

This will show how much passion this employee
has in that field, and could be easily elected to be a technical leader!
Doing a master means you will dig things more deep! and you are in the stage
of developing the protocols itself.

Maybe things will
change later but right now Master's degree is worthless 
compared to CCIE

have a 4 year degree in mathmatics & no employeer ever asks about it - 
ask about my 3xCCIE
