Re: Preparing for GSEC

It's not necessary to complete the classes in any order.  It can be
helpful to take the GSEC prior to taking the other classes, but it's
not a requirement.  Look at the prerequisites of the class you are
interested in.

Also, Rishi, you can also take the On Demand class if the cost of
going to a conference proves to be prohibitive.  You have access to
the same slides that we do in class, and you are also provided with
the mp3 files of the lectures.  Another good thing is that a "On
Demand Mentor" is available to answer questions.

Hey Ron,

Even though you asked for GSEC, my query is generic to GIAC
certifications. I need to ask about the road-map it suggests:
- - Is it mandatory to follow the LEVELS in sequence?
- - What these levels actually stand for?

I am into Security Research for Vulnerabilities/Hack Attacks & have
interest in the following GIAC certs:

1. GIAC Security Essentials Certification (GSEC)- LEVEL 4
2. Stay Sharp Program - Mastering Packet Analysis (SSP-MPA) - LEVEL 4
3. GIAC Certified Intrusion Analyst (GCIA)- LEVEL 5
4. GIAC Intrusion Prevention (GIPS) - LEVEL 5
5. GIAC Cutting Edge Hacking Techniques (GHTQ) - LEVEL 5
6. GIAC Web Application Security (GWAS)- LEVEL 5
7. GIAC Reverse Engineering Malware (GREM)- LEVEL 6

So, is it necessary to complete #1 (GSEC) before #4 (GIPS), so forth and
so on...
And, even I want to go for material/books as training courses are not
available here in INDIA for any GIAC certs. Later, once all set, I will
attend the conference before taking the exam.

Thanks to K. Brian, and Mike Hale for some insight!

Securely yours'
