Courses on threat management and incident response

I want to pursue a career in incident handling and response. I have six years of experience in security which includes...

perimeter security and antivirus, and I also have a CISSP. Are there courses related to threat management and incident response? What's the best way to enter into this field of speciality? The programs from SANS (www.giac.org) and Security University (www.securityuniversity.com) come closest to meeting your precise needs. Since both programs are rigorously kept up-to-date and both have stellar reputations, I can recommend both with equal confidence in their value and impact on your career.

Good luck with your certification pursuits.
