Security Training: By Delivery

Training Events

SANS offers classes throughout the year in many major US cities as well as Europe, Australia, Canada, Asia, India and Dubai. These training events feature anywhere from one to over fifty classes at the same location. SANS events offer much more than just training - this is the place to network with other information security professionals, gain information on new vendor products, participate in onsite/online challenges and contests, and listen to world-class guest speakers.

Summits

The SANS WhatWorks Summit Series are unique two-day events that focus on the most current topics in computer security. SANS WhatWorks Summits are the only place to get secrets from the best minds in the security industry, learn tough lessons from real enterprises - what really works (and what doesn't), gain hands-on experience with top vendors, and get answers to the hard questions.

Community Events

The Community SANS format offers the most popular SANS courses in your local community in a small classroom setting - most courses have fewer than 25 students. The instructors are pulled from the best of our SANS Mentor program and are trained by top-rated SANS instructors like Eric Cole and Ed Skoudis. The course material is delivered over a six-day period, just like it is at a larger SANS event, and you receive all the same content, audio files, and other materials. We provide continental breakfast and breaks to encourage networking among students and faculty. Learn More

Mentor

The SANS Mentor program offers the flexibility of live training with time between class sessions for independent study. Class sessions are led by a local Mentor, who will cover course content, hands on exercises and labs and assist with questions both within and outside the classroom. Mentors are SANS Students who have earned GIAC certification with honors. If one of your employees has met this bar, he or she can lead a Mentor class within our @Work Program. This allows your organization to bring SANS to the workplace and develop an in-house SANS expert. By using in-house mentors, you can save on training and travel, customize a training schedule that meets your business needs and apply content directly to your organization during class. Learn More

As the leading organization in computer security training, SANS established the SANS Innovation Center (SIC), which now includes teaching our courses OnSite at a government customer's desired location. SIC offers the same SANS computer security courses that have been developed by industry leaders in numerous fields including network security, software security, forensics, security leadership, audit, and legal.

Study texts and listen to the lectures at your own convenience and pace! In addition, students who register for GIAC Certification will receive TWO free GIAC practice tests. These practice tests show the student what to expect on the GIAC examination. Since many students may have been out of school for a long time, practicing test taking skills can improve their chances of passing the GIAC exams. Learn More

Partnership

The SANS Partnership Series is an outreach program created to provide deeply discounted training to support constituencies that have:

  1. A clear impact on national security
  2. Large numbers of information security practitioners
  3. Budget constraints that limit access to necessary training

The secret to this successful program is cost reduction realized by delivering the courses to large classes (125 or more). Read More
