When you renew, you’re showing yourself and others in the industry that not only do you have a certification, but you’ve gone above and beyond to gain advanced knowledge and experience in order to keep that certification.
The longer your certification is active, the more years of verified knowledge and hands-on technical abilities you have. Employers value certifications, and maintaining your certification shows your employer that you’re someone they can depend on.
Your industry peers know how much time and effort is involved in maintaining a certification, and the longer you maintain your certifications, the more you’ll be recognized as an expert in your field.
Renewing ensures your personal security knowledge, your job security, and the security of your enterprise — all in one.
“My GIAC certification and the necessary CPEs to maintain it keeps me current in security, which improves my employer’s security posture as well as my personal security posture.” — Margaret Kauska, Security Officer, State Government
