    When it comes to education, most people agree, more is better. No one embodies that principle at least in regard to IT certifications better than Jerry Irvine. CIO of IT consulting firm Prescient Solutions and member of the National Cyber Security Task Force, Irvine holds more than 20 IT certifications, of which at least six are specifically information security-oriented. "I'll stop getting certifications when I'm dead," says Irvine, though one wonders if even that will dissuade him. Irvine is a strong believer in the notion that the value of certifications in general and security certifications in particular shows up in your wallet.
