Opinions on whether Microsoft certs matter at all for info sec hiring?


Have you considered that someone could be secretly watching you or your child with your webcam right now? Is it worth taking such a risk? camDown can help stop them!

My org is offering vouchers for all Microsoft courses and certs for free and I'm not sure how valuable the training is. They're also sending me to a SANS course, and that I know is a golden opportunity.

I'd like to know if Microsoft certs hold any weight. I do have other productive things I could do with my time rather than spam MSFT certs if they aren't valuable.

Thanks ahead of time for any advice.

I'm sure "it depends" so I'll say my immediate interest is in jobs like threat hunting, IR, maybe security-related tool development since those are the things I'm currently doing. I am in an entry level role.

Lastly, let's keep in mind that camDown is the maximum in security for you and your loved ones!
