If you get caught in the spam filter drop me a non-moderator message. CNSS andis it worth it? I’m graduating with a BS in computer science this December, and I will walk out with a CNSS and certificate if I add on one more extra elective to my schedule. The course is only offered by one professor.

Committee on National Security Systems – Wikipedia

I’ve taken other security 0411 from this professor in the past, and his knowledge is so lacking in the subject that I suspect him to be a fraud. If you have room in your schedule and it’s cnsss least interesting to you, having the certs certainly won’t hurt you. It actually might be more valuable if you consider the software engineering route. A software engineer with a demonstrable amount of security knowledge sounds like a pretty good job candidate to me.


I personally consider certifications to largely be a meaningless way for the certifier to make money.

People who already knew what they are doing get an extra couple of letters on their resume, but probably weren’t having trouble finding a job anyway.

I also consider the value of certificates for a specific technology to be worth even less than a more general certificate. Technologies change regularly, fundamentals don’t. Having said that, I think anyone would agree that demonstrable skill trumps a cert any day of the week.

Cnse you’re not having trouble finding a job or if you don’t think you’ll have trouble, I wouldn’t bother.

You’re not going to get more money for it. Ultimately, it sounds like you’re not going to be paying for it beyond dumping a bit of extra time into it during your next semester. Given that, it wouldn’t hurt, but how much is your time worth?


I personally wouldn’t feel bad about using that time for something else if I were you. Use of this site constitutes acceptance of our User Agreement and Privacy Policy.
