considering doing SEC505: Securing Windows and PowerShell Automation - (GIAC Certified Windows Security Administrator (GCWN).
I haven’t done any
previous GIAC courses, so this will be my first. My role is just beginning in Cyber
Security. I have a few years experience
in Windows Server Admin and Cloud technologies (Azure etc), but by no means an expert.Not really familiar with powershell but that’s
not a prerequisite, so I can learn that.
How difficult is this
exam to pass? Is it open book and can
you study online or does it have to be in person?
Hope you can help, failure is not an option for me
I can't tell you for this specific exam, but the difficulty of the GPEN exam I did was aligned with the practice test. You can do your exam online with a remote proctor.
If you are beginning in cybersecurity have you consider choosing SEC401: Security essentials Network, Endpoint, Cloud and write the GSEC exam instead?
What is your current role?
