GIAC has launched the industry standard for the certification of SIEM experts. The GCDA certification accompanies the SANS SEC555 course and proves an individual knows how to collect, analyze, and tactically use modern network and endpoint data sources to detect unauthorized activity.

In this webcast, SEC555 course author Justin Henderson will discuss who should go after the GCDA certification, key points to make when talking to your decision makers, and what you can expect from the exam.

"This certification shows individuals not only know how to wield tools such as Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) but that they know how to use tools to turn attacker strengths into attacker weaknesses." - Justin Henderson, SANS SEC555 Course Author
