This is valuable for anyone starting a career in information security. SANS 401 focuses on key fundamentals that relate to any job. - Omar Haq, The Boeing Company
This is probably the most valuable course I've taken to expand my knowledge and perspective in this field (SEC504). - Joe Compton, Apple
With the mad rush towards mobile device adoption at the point of sale and industry regulations and laws struggling to keep up, thank goodness SANS with SEC575 helps companies maintain secure operations. - Dean Altman, Discount Tire
SEC414 is an excellent introduction in how to speak to higher management. - Gregory Fellin, UC Merced
