    What is the best videos or course to watch to help better understand the world of GRC?

    There is not a lot of good information out there that is laid out in a constructive manner on the web. I was hoping ITPro had some good material. I am just not sure where to start watching.

    I feel this really depends on your requirements.

    If this is for a business with less-than-technical users you may want to go something that is more managed and in that case I would make a strong argument for Microsoft's Office 365 platform. You can turn on encryption and the implementation is simple.

    If you ran a security company then you'd definitely want to go with something less managed like Mozilla Thunderbird and some GPG/OpenPGP software, such as Enigmail.

    It seems as though Virtru is just managing the encryption of O365 or Google. This is great for your folks, but the stumbling block of encrypted email has always been on the recipient's end. If their client does not make it easy, the email with either be ignored and/or deleted. Some platforms do not allow users to accept encrypted email, like some helpdesk platforms. There are always two sides to this coin. So many services try to make it "easier," but it is usually just for the sender.

    Where are some opinions regarding CompTIA's PenTest+.

    From what I've read it is supposed to fit between CASP and Security+. Right now it is only in beta and I am having a hard time finding any material on it. I assume those sitting for the test are just relying on experience to sit the exam. It is only $50, so the pressure is not as much as a usual exam, but if it does become an actual exam it might be nice to have on a resume.

    @Mike-Rodrick Sorry for getting back to this so, so late. I don't recall what I was wanting at the time. Thank you guys for replying so promptly at the time, though.

    If anything happens to come up in the future I will make sure to make a new post and stay on top of this time!

    I was watching the "Features on Demand" episode of the MCSA Windows Server 2012 - 70-410 course and overheard Daniel Lowrie make the mention of "Fountain Drew" to Mike Rodrick. I was curious as to how this phrase came into existence and what the story was behind it.

    This definitely sounds like something that started as an inside joke. Would either gentlemen care to share the story with all of us?!

    Guys,

    I know it has been a while, but is there any chance of getting the show notes input/uploaded for the CompTIA Advanced Security Practitioner course hosted by Mike, assisted by Adam?

    I am looking at taking this soon and some base notes would be helpful.

    Thanks!

    Personally, I would also recommend a small company called Datto. They really only sell via channel, so you might have to find a re-seller in your area, but their products are fantastic. We re-sell it here at InfoTECH and our customers love it. It is a stand-alone appliance running Ubuntu Linux and using ZFS for the image storage.

    I have taken all of the CEH training here at ITProTV and loved it. Now I am looking over the requirements from the EC | Council and find them a little over the top compared to other organizations, such as CompTIA.

    They are requesting a scanned copy of an identification document, which cannot be a passport, driver's license, government ID or any other identification document that carries Personally Identifiable Information. How am I supposed to give an ID of that sort, if my company does not provide them? Are there other alternatives that I am not thinking of?

    This is the only point of contention I am facing. I am ready to submit Eligibility Application Fee of $100, resume demonstrating my two of years of experience, and Eligibility Application itself. My only holdup is this identification document.
