Hey guys,

I'm going for the GSE (GIAC Security Expert) certification by SANS. My projected time frame for the Entrance Exam (part 1) is between May 2020 and June 2020. My goal for part 2 of the GSE is Fall 2020 or Spring 2021. I currently have completed the SEC504, SEC401, and SEC560 courses. I have obtained GCIH(SEC504) and I am currently working on GPEN(SEC560). After getting GPEN I will be studying to get my GSEC(SEC401). 

I am attending SEC506(GCUX) at SANS Network Security 2019 in Sept. Which will leave me needing only GCIA(SEC503) to sit for the GSE.

    I'm taking the GSE lab in 5 weeks.  The GCIA is the biggest piece to the GSE.  You need to know the material and tools inside out.

    I also want to pursue the GSE next year but I need to get the prereqs out of the way though. I just passed the GCED and I'm looking at the remaining exams to master the skills needed.
