You (or your more junior colleagues) can use these offerings best to identify topics, tools, and technologies worth studying in the area of information security. On each of the aforementioned Web pages, you’ll find exam outlines that describe the contents of the related certification exams that can help to guide investigation of the subject matter. Couple this with a good general textbook on information security—such as the Kaufman, Perlman and Speciner Network Security (2e, Prentice Hall, 2002, ISBN: 0-13-046019-2) or the Pleeger and Pleeger Security in Computing (3e, Prentice Hall, 2003, ISBN: 0-13-035548-8)—and you’ve got a pretty good plan of attack for IT Professionals interesting in starting to learn more about information security topics. People who take this approach can even pay $49.95 to take the related Brainbench exams to see how well they comprehend and retain the material.
