IT Security Certs Come Together for Common Code of Ethics


Last week, two leading IT security certification vendors, SANS Global Information Assurance Certification (GIAC) and the International Information Systems Security Certification Consortium [(ISC)2], announced they had come together with another group, the Information Systems Security Association, to approve a common code of ethics for IT security professionals.

Both (ISC)2, known for its flagship Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP) title, and GIAC offer a range of certifications for IT security professionals, and emphasize ethics in their curriculums -- (ISC)2 candidates must sign a code of ethics as part of the credential process.

"This is a crucial step toward the professionalism of information security workers," commented Stephen Northcutt, chairman of the GIAC Board of Directors, in a prepared statement.

According to the announcement of the code, the approval last week was the first step toward possibly creating a larger consortium of organizations approving this code for its members, including ASIS International and the Information Systems Audit and Control Association (ISACA), who offers the Certified Information Systems Auditor (CISA) certification, among others.

The development process is continuing, and the organizations have not said when the code will be applied to their members. The code of ethics itself has yet to be released.

New Novell Certified Engineer Cert Coming in 08


Novell recently announced on its Web site that it will be launching a new high-level cert for Linux professionals, the Novell Certified Engineer (NCE), next year.

Although its name is similar to the companys longstanding Certified Novell Engineer (CNE), the NCE is a new title for Linux IT pros.

While the titles exams wont debut until "spring 2008," the company has posted a roadmap for the first track of the new credential, the NCE Enterprise Services, which will certify "engineer-level skills for Novells file and print solutions and for the platform that hosts the solutions." According to the information posted, candidates will be required to pass one exam: NCE Enterprise Services (050-709).

Though objectives for the exam have yet to be released, according to information on the companys Web site, the exam will be a hands-on exam like Novells other Linux-related certification exams. These exams typically cost $195, and are available only through Novells testing network.

Nothing on the Web site indicates that the NCE will affect the CNE, at least for now: Both CNE tracks, the CNE Open Enterprise Server and the CNE NetWare 6, remain available.
