Listing should indicate GIAC as certifying body, not SANS, and include each certification on the right side of the table (except most don't yet exist as articles.) jth (talk) 22:54, 15 February 2010 (UTC)

Fixed SANS vs. GIAC and added GCFA, which has an article and seems appropriate for the list. As other articles are created, feel free to add to the list. RossPatterson (talk) 23:38, 15 February 2010 (UTC)

It is the right title for this template?[edit]

There is a debate about the difference between Computer Security, Information Security and Information Assurance; see Information Assurance top for a short explanation.

I think that most certification listed are about Information Assurance and Information Security: look at the certification names.

Computer Security is a more used but limited term.

Information Security is a wider term than Computer security: I proposed to change (at least in the first line of the navbox) the name of this template. Moving the template to a new name "Information Security Certifications" would be better. I do not know if redirect work for transclusions, otherwise we have to change (eventually by a bot) all the references.

I have noticed that not every certification listed in the template transclude the template itself.

According to my opinion at least an article should transclude this template. I saw that Computer security and Computer insecurity do not have a certification/professionalism sections

Information assurance have sections about certifications and I recently have worked on Information security#Professional association and certification.

I think the best solution is to write a new article perhaps Information security certification, moving the current versions of the above mentioned sections dealing with certification and inserting a {{main|Information security certification}} in the articles. Eventually in this new article we can try to categorize the different certifications

I will post a similar sections in the cited articles. I suggest that your welcome comments to be posted in Template_talk:Computer_Security_Certifications

This sounds like a reasonable suggestion. Whether we disagree on any precepts on a category for a specific certification is irrelevant, I think most can be categorized at IS certs, and disambiguated further as necessary. Thank you for your contributions. Sephiroth storm (talk) 13:27, 17 December 2010 (UTC)

Updated list of Security certifications needing adding here[edit]

The article at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Computer_Security_Certifications now has most EC-Council, GIAC, ISACA and ISC2 certifications listed. How easy to get these added to the template? Not all have corresponding articles, some are in other articles for example corresponding GIAC article. Much worked needed. Send help. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 04:32, 29 September 2015 (UTC)

GIAC is currently missing in the template, whereas EC-Council, ISACA and ISC2 are included. Why is GIAC missing?--Bibsol (talk) 17:13, 12 June 2016 (UTC)
