What are the differences between all the security certifications. I know CompTIA Security+ (which I passed years ago, but expired in November) is the entry-level/security foundation, but I don't really know what the difference is between CEH, CISSP, CASP, SSCP, etc.
The big difference between them is the certifying organization. CompTIA represents a vendor neutral certification, this normally means more generic terms less on specifics and more on theory. All of the others represent either a specific vendor or industry specialization. Usually, with these cert, they call out some of the same items but more specifically and are more in depth because their focus is in a specialization or a particular vendor's product.
When I very briefly studied for the Security+ exam, I enjoyed learning the topics, but I never did anything with it in the workplace so I lost it. Now I'm looking to change jobs and wondering if I should also look at changing roles.
This is a tough one because that normally depends more on market you're in or willingness to change markets. Security and App Development are the two fastest growing field in IT with a high demand for both.
