Number of TICSA certified-individuals

I believe Security+ is in beta now. Is that correct? Also, do you have any numbers for the TICSA certifications issued?

Yes, you are correct that Security+ is already in beta, as described at Interested security professionals are invited to take this beta to help ensure the best possible commercial exam.

As far as TICSA numbers go, I'm not aware of any official release of information on this topic -- goes off to check private communications -- and can report only that the number of certified individuals is not public knowledge. However, such numbers do not yet qualify the program for "critical mass."
