Letters to the editor

Following are responses to an FCW.com poll question that asked, "Do you think federal IT workers should be required to earn a systems security certification?"

Systems security certifications require prerequisites of other certifications and hands-on time in security.

Those of us in regions are denied participation in security policy-making and implementation strategies. We are simply given the completed package and expected to follow the rules promulgated by Washington. How could we possibly qualify and retain certification?

Certifications, if required, also should be funded, unless the government produces its own certification. In that case, it should be comprehensive enough to be recognized by business as a valid certificate.
