GSEC - GIAC Security Essentials

The GSEC certification assesses a candidate's understanding of theoretical security topics, including access control theory, legal aspects of incident handling and incident handling fundamentals, as well as more practical security aspects, such as dealing with wireless attacks, implementing defense in depth, reading packets and securing Windows Server services.

GCIH - GIAC Certified Incident Handler

The GCIH is an entry-level certification in the penetration testing domain. It tests a candidate’s knowledge around understanding an incident, detecting an incident, using various tools to understand attacker tactics and understanding different types of attacks, such as buffer overflows, password attacks, session hijacking, the OWASP Top 10 and more.

The GPEN certification assesses a candidate's knowledge of network and system design as well as how to discover vulnerabilities. It tests a candidate's knowledge around performing advanced password attacks, scanning for vulnerabilities, scanning for and profiling interesting targets, carrying out post exploitation methods and performing web application attacks. Candidates should possess basic knowledge of exploitation and the pentesting process.

Without any question, InfoSec has the most gifted individual instructors. Our instructor for this class was both an excellent educator and a premier/world class security expert. He was able to clearly explain and impart to the students, the most complicated security techniques I have ever heard of or imagined. I simply can not find the words to recommend him and Infosec security training more highly.

I have attended 4 othe workshops like this but Infosec's is by far the best one and I already have recommended them to my colleagues and other IT Professionals. I believe that a students learning experience is reflective of the teacher's aptitude and knowledge on the subject and the skill to covey the information. Great instructor, great class.
