Global Information Assurance Certification (GIAC) develops and administers the premier certifications for information security professionals. More than 30 GIAC certifications align with SANS training and ensure mastery in critical, specialized InfoSec domains.

GIAC certifications provide the highest and most rigorous assurance of cybersecurity knowledge and skill available to industry, government, and military clients across the world.

Join us for an informational presentation along with a Q and A session. We'll cover everything from why you should get certified, what testing looks like, how to keep certifications current and more. GIAC staff will be present to answer your questions before and after the presentation.
