    About the Advisory Board

    The EC-Council Advisory Board is a member based network of volunteers that are recognized by EC-Council and the society as key leaders in the field of information security. They are carefully selected from either the academia and/or industry that are committed in creating current awareness in information security. An invitation is extended to these individuals to be part of the Advisory Board and the selection criteria are based on their credibility and contribution to the e-business and security community. More importantly, they remain an independent voice for the industry.

    Their leadership role is integral to the success of the Advisory Board and they can proudly declare their membership in the Advisory Board. With the formation of the Board, we hope to monitor developments to our present EC-Council certification policies and procedures and to ensure that our certifications remain valuable and up-to-date, and that all EC-Council certified professionals maintain and widen their knowledge base ethically. The Advisory Board shall hereby advice, contribute and review all the aspects of development and the maintenance of EC-Council’s certification programme EC-Council Certified Security Analyst (E|CSA) and matters concerning content of the E|CSA programme.
    The Advisory Board is independent in its review and the standards are peer reviewed globally. The management of EC-Council shall refer to the Advisory Board for advice in matters pertaining to E|CSA.



  • @irj That sounds more like they're trying to talk me out of participating.

    @irj That sounds more like they're trying to talk me out of participating.

    It's alot of buzz words, but I think the majority of the responsibility will be giving opinons on certifications, coursework, and possibly test questions.



  • Sounds like you paid you're way into being selected just because you tested (nothing nefarious of course).

    I know someone else who has the cert that didn't get invited. I had to apply to get this far. I sent out an application a few months ago and figured it fell to the wayside. Then today I got this email.

    No cost on my end and of course it's volunteer (unpaid)



  • Also this is a practical cert. You have to break into a network and it takes over a week to do that. After you finish the pen test, you have supply a writen security audit and prove your exploits with screenshots and step by step.

    After that you are allowed to take 150 question exam. Then you get certified.



  • Possibly due to your contributions here, which are usually great.
    Thanks
