GSE (GIAC Security Expert)

The GSE (GIAC Security Expert) is the top, most difficult to attain certification offered by GIAC (SANS Institute). The GSE is only for expert-level technology professionals and demonstrates a mastery of information security in more than one focus area.

Pursuing the GSE has prerequisites as well as a lengthy testing period. Candidates must already have GSEC, GCIA and GCIH (all by GIAC / SANS Institute) with GIAC Gold scoring in two of the three, with a threshold score of 80 points or more on the two GIAC Gold achievements.

The GSE exam itself consists of a mix of writing, research, hands-on technical work, solo presentation, and group work. All of this takes 23 hours and is administered and proctored onsite.

Example:

“The GSE is the most difficult to attain professional certification in the field of cybersecurity. Few people have such a certification.”
