I have a Bachelor's in Business Administration and have worked in the field of office administration for over 10 years. I have recently been given the option to move over to IT Compliance as a Risk Analyst. My boss the CIO feels this would be a great field for me to get into. The only issue is the job description requires me to have some type of certification in IT (CiSA, CEGIT (sp), ITLT, etc) in the next two months. I did some research and find that most of the exams for June (CISA) are closed. Can you recommend what I can do in the next two months to show that I have creditentials to move to a different career path? Also - do you know how I could go about getting certified ITLT? Any information, advise, direction, etc would be helpful and greatly appreciated. Thank you, Cindy cindybug1@msn.com

    Judging by your listed certifications, I think you're going to find few self study aids, but it looks like they are available. Just not as widespread as the more common certifications. My suggestion to you is to inquire to your employer if there are alternative certifications that you can attain on an interim basis until such time as the testing for their recommended ones becomes available. There's a lot of security certifications, ones dealing with very broad and ones dealing with very micro-specific items. Yours look to be more specific than broad, and Here is a link to NIST / ITL certification information Let us know if there are alternatives for you in the meantime and we'll help point you in the right direction.

    You may even consider the Security+ certification. I don't recall what the minimum requirements are for it (i.e. # of years of experience, etc.) if any but I know it's less than the CISSP and other higher-end certifications. The Security+ is a bit more technical but based on what I see in the audit/risk management fields we need more technical people doing this work!
