Security Exam Under Development

Beta testing for new MCSA/MCSE elective expected in November.

Earlier this week, Microsoft released information on development of a new security-based exam. According to the exam objectives guide posted at http://www.microsoft.com/traincert/exams/70-214.asp, Exam 70-214, Implementing and Administering Security in a Windows 2000 Network is an MCSA and MCSE elective that's expected to be released in beta form in November 2002.

The exam follows on the heels of comments that Microsoft's training and certification group made earlier this year regarding possible development of a security certification (see "Microsoft Considering Desktop, Security Certs" by CertCities.com Editor Becky Nagel, in the News archive).
