    That is a good site; it's been around for a while. I recall using it to assist with making compliance matrices for SIEM implementations when I worked at RSA as a professional services engineer deploying their (now) old enVision SIEM. Most engagements would be at a financial institution that had to deal with PCI, GLBA, SOX, etc. I could take the information from that site and build a matrix in Excel which cross-referenced the SIEM report to the compliance objective.

    Hopefully, someone from ITProTV can answer your original question...or perhaps another student who used ITProTV as their primary resource can add more to the conversation.

    I can say that I have used ITProTV as my primary resource for a couple of other certification exams and all of the material was covered as I passed those exams.

    I passed the CISSP back in 2007...but that's back when there were 10 domains and it was a more difficult exam overall. Are you asking if the "students" used ITProTV exclusively or are you asking if anyone passed the exam in general?

    To me, revert means to undo the change prior to committing it. Rollback is to undo a change after committing it.

    For example, you change the value of a field in a configuration file and you click the 'Cancel' button rather than the 'Apply' button - that's reverting the change. If you do click the 'Apply' button and realize that was a mistake, you either reconfigure the field or restore from a backup - that's a rollback.

    Hi Juan,

    Getting into the IT field can be the biggest hurdle, but once you get there, I assure you that your options will open up greatly. You are on the right path - start with the entry-level certifications to get a solid foundation of computers and IT. CompTIA A+ and ITF+ are good certifications to get started. You can hopefully do this while you keep your current job. Once you have these certifications under your belt, start applying for Help Desk positions. Like many folks here, we started on the Help Desk and moved our way up the career ladder.

    If you do not have the experience, I would recommend a combination of reading certification books (i.e., Kindle books so you have 'em anywhere...study during your time waiting at the doctor or on break at work, etc.)...and download the MP3s/Videos from ITProvTv and put 'em on your phone - watch them/listen to them on your commute to work (I call my car a "university on wheels"...it is the only thing I listen to on my commute to and from work). You'd surprised how much you retain by this simple strategy. You can buy a $15 Bluetooth receiver for your car's radio on Amazon if you don't already have one.

    Reading is an activity that uses different parts of the brain than listening/watching MP3s/videos. As such, reading the material first, then watching/listening to the material will reinforce the material.

    You can do this! Good luck!

    Hi ITProvTV,

    I see a few replies to this post stating "beginning of the year" (2019) for the release of the update CASP-003. We are now a couple of days away from March and I cannot seem to find any updates to this content. When will the CASP be updated? Do you have it on the roadmap? Any dates you can share? Thanks as always!

    Regards,
    Brock

    One thing to note is that Linux+ is in the process of being changed by CompTIA. The change occurs in April 2019...so you have about 6 weeks or so weeks from today to take the exam under the current content; otherwise, you'll need to fill in the gaps with the new material on the new exam.

    You might enjoy Adam's episodes on ECES - there is a bunch of documentation and Word document with definitions about cryptography in that series.
