As the title indicates I passed my GCIH today ! Percentage 76% - Not very happy about it but a pass is a pass !

GIAC Certified Incident Handler (GCIH)
First Certified: September 10th, 2013
Expiration: September 30th, 2017

I attended the in person class by Chris Mohan in Bangalore in May 2013. Been studying up for the exam only from August. I have no real experience in the Incident Handling realm but have documented and done stuff with my companies Incident Response plans and such.

I think the course is fun and Chris has done a good job !

Thank you YFZblu , JDMurray, Docrice and many others who have helped me in whatever way !

Special thanks to Psycho32 and YFZblu for the additional practice exams they gave away to me.

Need a break from studying for a week and then on to the GSEC !

I am trying to attend the FOR408 In Class happening in Bangalore only if the Work Study happens though !

Additionally I now have three unused Practice tests , Please PM with your email addresses ( SANS Registered )

The above are expiry dates. In case you want something particular do let me know in your message.

Preference is to those who are actually going to write the exam soon and the rest follows.

Adios !

    Congratulations!
    Yes, I am a criminal. My crime is that of curiosity. My crime is that of judging people by what they say and think, not what they look like. My crime is that of outsmarting you, something that you will never forgive me for.

    @Chanakyajupudi: The GCWN was a great class. I took it last year and they have revamped it since then to include Malware I believe. I've been a Windows Guy for a long, long time and I still learned a lot. If learning how Windows ticks is your thing, then go for it.

    I want to do the GCIH after I complete my CISSP class in October and then prepare for the exam (pending budgetary approval, lol).

    Haha, my CCNA exam was somewhere in 2001, and MCSE: Security in 2005. Still got a lot to learn :) Discover new things everyday.. just did my CISM last week and waiting for results :)

    And just added you on LinkedIn!

    CONGRATS!!! GSEC is foundational so it goes across a lot of topics. Good luck on it. GCWN on the other hand is a mind killer, literally. Jason Fossen (Course Writer and Instructor) puts so much information in there it's not every funny. I re-sat the course a couple of months ago (updated 2012 server and WIN 8 and it felt like he added even more information than he had in there with the 2003 server track. If you are going to take it, DO ALL THE LABS 2x at least. Make sure that you know how he recommends to secure IIS backwards and forwards. The Powershell stuff is good also, but I do believe that you probably won't see that much of it on the exam.
