    Default ECIH and GCIH Similarities/Differences

    tl;dr How much of a difference is there in the content between the ECIH and GCIH?

    I attended SEC504 at SANSFIRE in July and have been prepping to sit for my GCIH. Unfortunately, WGU doesn't accept GCIH for the Cyber Defense and Countermeasures class.... only the ECIH.

    I'm currently getting consistent mid 80's on their online practice exam and feel comfortable enough to just get'r'done.... but I'm worried that I'm not prepared for any EC Council-specific crap that's on the exam. I've never taken anything from them, but I've heard plenty about their less than stellar reputation.

    Can anybody comment on this?

    As far as I know ECIH is pure process driven and talks about the processes/steps to invoke if an incident occurs (e.g. triage/risk assessment/isolation/impact assessment etc). Nothing hands on here like GCIH.

    Exactly... and to add insult to injury, they accept plenty of GIAC certifications for multiple different courses, including,the GCIH... but that can only apply to the Network Security - Applications course.
