I have been an associate of ISC2 for a few years now and finally have 4 years of security experience (2 prior in Networks). I saw a list of GIAC certs on the approved list required to lower the years of experience needed for CISSP from 5 to 4 years, but when I enquired with ISC2, I was surprised to learn that my GIAC certs would not be accepted:
GIAC Continuous Monitoring Certification (GMON)
GIAC Cyber Threat Intelligence (GCTI)
GIAC Strategic Planning, Policy, and Leadership (GSTRT)
What is bizarre to me is that the GIAC Security Leadership Certification (GSLC) is listed as approved by ISC2. It is listed on the SANS roadmap as 'Security Management' and yet the certification I took (GIAC Strategic Planning, Policy, and Leadership (GSTRT)) is listed by SANS as an 'Advanced Management', which to me would suggest it would be valued higher.
It is a little disappointing because none of these are basic certs. I let my Comptia Sec+ and CySa+ expire last year because I was sure the GIACs would be sufficient in showing my commitment to learning. Does anyone know how these are evaluated within ISC2, or had a similar experience?
