I decided to make a overview of existing Security Analyst training programs, since they are not easy to find on the internet it also allows for other peoples feedback on which training programs are better in the cost vs. benefit/quality comparison.
The scope focuses only on Security Analyst Training programs which are generic in nature (not vendor or product specific).
Note: i have not included EC-Council's Certified Security Analyst (ECSA), OSSTMM Professional Security Analyst Accredited Certification (OPSA), CREST Practitioner Security Analyst due to it being more oriented towards other subjects in the security realm or not having any formal training for them.
Note2: this overview has been setup from the Dutch perspective, this explains some dutch programs included
When talking about training programs most people believe SANS training programs are the best. GCIA has been the no.1 requested training for security analysts in the past and GCIH no.2 although the new training program for GMON will have some added value too soon.
