Matthew Coyle, Academy of the Redwoods Senior, Achieves Rare GIAC Security Essentials Certification Eureka,CA 10/2023– Matthew Coyle, a 12th-grade student at the Academy of the Redwoods, part of the Fortuna Union High School District (FUHSD) and a partner with the College of the Redwoods (CR), has achieved the esteemed GIAC (Global Information Assurance Certification) Security Essentials Certification, a remarkable accomplishment for a high school student. The GIAC Security Essentials Certification (GSEC) is a globally recognized certification in the field of information security. It demonstrates proficiency in a wide range of security-related concepts and practices. Typically, this certification is pursued by IT professionals, with employers often covering the costs of training. Matthew's journey to attain this certification was an arduous one. As a National Cyber Scholar with Honors, he received an elite scholarship through a single attempt. He diligently invested over 100 hours, reading seven comprehensive books and watching over a thousand instructional videos from the SANS course. With meticulous note-taking, each hour of video turned into a rigorous 2-3 hour study session. The SANS Institute and GIAC work hand-in-hand, providing top-notch training and certification opportunities for aspiring cybersecurity professionals. Cyberstart America, founded by the CTO of SANS, played a pivotal role in Matthew's journey. Matthew's path to this achievement began in 9th grade with his participation in Cyberstart America. Over the years, he completed numerous challenges, rising to become a finalist in the National Cyber Scholarship Competition. Through unwavering dedication, Matthew not only attained the GFACT certificate at the age of 15 but also secured a place in the top 1% of Cyber Scholars with Honors in the USA. The AR community is proud of Matthew's exceptional achievement, and wants to acknowledge all that he has accomplished.
