Candidly, I’ve always been impressed by the level of detail and coverage that Cisco provides to certification candidates (and casual visitors) on its Web site. Lately, I’ve been trolling numerous locations thereupon, and have come away even more convinced that the company does as good a job of supporting its technical professionals (certified or otherwise) as anybody else out there. This is particularly true for security related topics and information, where the company not only offers lots of terrific security resources on its own Web pages (see Table 1 for some highlights) but also supports related resources in other places, too. Most notably, this includes the Cisco Center at SearchSecurity.com, where you’ll find pointers to recent security related webcasts and whitepapers on a regular basis. Because information security is a subject matter where more knowledge and information is often better than less, I have to applaud Cisco’s efforts and offerings in keeping IT professionals savvy about security matters.
