What is SANS?

SANS is the most trusted and by far the largest source for cybersecurity training in the world. We offer training through several delivery methods including OnDemand (self paced) and instructor-led both Live Online (virtual) and In-Person. Our cybersecurity courses are developed by industry leaders in numerous fields including network security, digital forensics, offensive operations, cybersecurity leadership, industrial control systems, and cloud security. Courses are taught by real-world practitioners who are the best at ensuring you not only learn the material, but that you can apply it immediately when you return to the office. In addition to top-notch training, we offer certification via GIAC, an affiliate of the SANS Institute featuring over 35 hands-on, technical certifications in cyber security. We offer a Master's Degree, graduate and undergraduate certificate programs through SANS Technology Institute, as well as numerous free resources including newsletters, whitepapers and webcasts.
