I am planning to take up certification in Penetration Testing. Could anyone advise on which certification is more widely recognized or considered best (between CEH & GIAC -GPEN)?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

The CEH is more widely-known but SANS GIAC certs are well respected. I’d recommend reviewing the outline and requirements and see which is the best fit for you. Just know that these certs are only a small part of the career equation as I talk about here: Will a degree or certification help enhance your IT career?, here: Does certification really matter?, and here: Certifications, Degrees, or Experience – What’s Best for Your Security Career?

    I'd probably go for SANS GIAC, it's very well known. Important: why do you think you need a certification? Job requirement? Want to get into that field? Good luck! Diego.
