In case you didn’t know it, the Feds now have strict and specific requirements that include certification for anyone who works for or with the government in any job that involves IT security. And, of course, it takes no special predictive abilities to understand that the FITSP program is designed to get people trained up on the relevant subject matters to meet those requirements. But what is interesting (and special) to me is that Clement is one heck of an instructor and security guy, which makes attending any classes he teaches more than worthwhile, but also fun and supremely educational. And right now, the first 500 people who sign up to take any of the four FITSP cert exams, all of which normally cost $295 each, can take that exam for free.
If you’ve worked in infosec for or with the goverment for 5 or more years, you can also check into getting grandfathered into some FITSP credential. Visit the home page for more details and information. If you can get into one of the classes that Clement is teaching, it’s definitely worth doing, too.]]>
