How to Hack the GIAC

  • Jonathan Ham
  • Wednesday, October 17th, 7:15pm - 8:15pm

At SANS, we teach how to hack all the things. Hacking fundamentally entails an ethic of figuring out how a system works, and then leveling up to find a way to best it. The GIAC exams you face are another such challenge that can be approached with the hacker mind.

In this talk, Jonathan unpacks his lengthy experience with preparing for certification exams, with everything you need to consider from the time you leave class on Day 6, until the day you successfully pass your exam: what to study, when to study, where to study, how to study, and why. All the tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs) it takes to ensure success, in the most efficient way.

No guessing, no worrying, no cheating. Just winning.
