GIAC: Global Information Assurance Certifications
Description: The first ever technical security certification program, GIAC continues to be popular with a wide range of certifications. To obtain a GIAC certification candidates must complete a practical, hands-on exam in addition to one or more technical exams.
Certifications Offered:
GIAC Security Essentials Certification (GSEC)
GIAC Certified Firewall Analyst (GCFW)
GIAC Certified Security Leadership (GSLC)
GIAC Certified Intrusion Analyst (GCIA)
GIAC Certified Incident Handler (GCIH)
GIAC Certified Windows Security Administrator (GCWN)

Costs: Each certification costs $450 if you take the exam only. If you attend GIAC training or a GIAC conference, the cost of the exam is reduced to $250 (however, course and conference registration fees run from $600 to $3,000).
Recertification: Recertification is required at intervals determined by GIAC (every two to four years, depending upon the certification). They will notify you three months before recertification is required. The cost is $120. If you hold multiple GIAC certifications and must recertify more than one in a single year, the $120 must only be paid once for that year. More information.
