SANS: Popular certifications dont ensure security

Many popular information technology security certifications don't improve holders' ability to ensure computer systems' security, according to a new survey from the SANS Institute, a training and education organization for security professionals.

The survey found that respondents with certifications from the Computing Technology Industry Association (CompTIA), the International Information Systems Security Certification Consortium -- also known as (ISC)2 -- and the Information Systems Audit and Control Association (ISACA) think that their training does not give them as strong an advantage in performing hands-on security jobs as platform- and vendor-specific certifications do.
