Passed GCCC

I passed GCCC yesterday.  This was a requirement for the MSISE program.  The class was more interesting than I thought it would be.  I think the class would be most useful for an auditor, consultant or a director that is trying to improve the security posture of an organization.  There are a few labs in the course but they're not really technical in nature.  The course material is only five very thin books.  A lot of the text is repeated over and over for every control.  It's pretty obvious that there wasn't enough material to fill five books so they tried their best to make it look like there's more than there is.  Like others have said the test is much easier than other GIAC tests.  I read the books twice over a two weeks period and scored a 93 on the test.  Next up is SEC599 in DC starting tomorrow.

    Grats! If nothing else, it's an easy route into the advisory board, if you weren't in it already. :)

    Look forward to the 599 review. It's very high on my list for next year, if I get my budget approved.

    As they say at Offensive Security, "Try Harder".  This was an easy course and exam.  It took me two weeks to prepare for this test so I'm sure you can find some time to do the same.

    Well done. Short of the official material, are did you use any other material to prepare? I'm having the 440 and 566 as new requirements for my job, so busy working through my options.

    Congratulations! I passed last year also two or three weeks after completing the SANS training. Easy one to knock out.
    Alphabet soup from (ISC)2, ISACA, GIAC, EC-Council, Microsoft, ITIL, Cisco, Scrum, and more.

    2021 goals: AZ-303, AZ-304, maybe TOGAF and more ISACA

    No, I never use anything other than the SANS material.  I didn't even look at the additional books that were sent.  The five course books are all really thin which may be why they also included copies of two NIST guides.
