GIAC passes the 20K milestone...

On a recent trip to my SANS portal I noticed that the number of GIAC certified professionals had marched past the 20,000 mark. Congratulations to the folks at SANS and GIAC on this tremendous achievement. I can remember, just a few years ago, when I obtained the GCWN that it stood at slightly more than half that number.

So what makes for the doubling in size? Awesome training, and flourishing brand recognition. As with any program that strives to stay on top, the certifying body GIAC has also fortified their credential offerings by now boasting ISO/ANSI 17024 accreditation. Both of these achievements make for a bright outlook for these organizations.

Take the time to include SANS in your research for training opportunities in '08 whether it's for you or your staff. You are planning on training for '08 right?
