GIAC certification

Who applied before this certification?

Some of the modules are exactly the same as CEH, ECSA and other EC Council certification......

There's no comparison between GIAC and Ecouncil.

SANS/ GIAC is the one of most reputable infosecurity organization in the world. SANS GIAC instructors are world class ISEC practitioners, respected globally. The modules names are similar, but the content and training quality are definitely world's apart

Avg GIAC Course training + certification attempt is around 6-7k. Personally its like comparing CISSP and A+ certifications.

Not to mention maintaining a SANS cert is costly.

Since the topic is mainly on SANS, here goes their free advertisements.

GSE = GIAC Security Expert - GSE

Masters = Masters Degree in Information Security - SANS Technology Institute

Agree w u. To add on to your point, giac certifications are harder to pass compare to ceh (personal opinion)and retest can only do once or twice within a few mths of last attempt. ceh one I'm not too sure.

Irony of this is that if u r looking for job, u will see ceh give u better mileage compare to giac ones. I think primarily being giac cert are not being as widely recognized in MOST co in sg. Most would advertise for cissp, cisa, cism, ceh and lastly giac ones.

Hi, I disagree about GIAC being less recognised. I had 3 SANS conference training and have obtained all 3 certifications. Management who REALLY understands Information security will know and respect GIAC and SANS. Most recruiters only know the most common ones like CISSP, CISA etc. CEH is for entry level positions IMO.
