Security, on the other hand, is an area where numerous e-learning opportunities are available. SANS and Security Certified Professional offer e-learning directly to the public, and other well-known, highly regarded programs like the CISSP and TruSecure ICSA Computer Security Associate (TICSA) have partner- ships with third parties who offer e-learning prep courses as well.
As another alternative, you should also investigate topical offerings from BrainBench and U2Test in your areas of interest. These are good, vendor-neutral starting points into the subjects in which you are interested. Likewise, the CompTIA Security+ exam (not available until Q1'03, however) would also be a good point of departure into the security area.
