From this event I hope to meet some new security professionals, add to my skills and bolster my security marketability.
Learn more about the class here. After the 6 days training, I will sit for the exam and begin working on my research paper.
The training runs from Monday September 18, 2006 to Saturday September 23, 2006.
Per the GIAC site:
