“SANS cloud security, automation, and container trainings and references have been critical for my employees to stay current with the volatile cloud landscape. As a hiring leader we continue to struggle to find the unicorn combination of Security/Development/Operations, and the emerging SANS trainings have been instrumental in supporting the industry’s development opportunities. Frank Kim and the rest of the expert SANS Cloud Instructor community are the tip of the spear leading this new focus area!!!”

    "SANS cloud training and GIAC certifications gave me the skills and knowledge I needed to land my dream job in cloud security. If you're looking for a career in this field, I highly recommend getting certified. I can personally attest to the value." - Ivan Santos

    According to AppDeveloperMagazine, fundamental cloud computing skills remain the most relevant and in-demand skills in 2023, outpacing machine learning and artificial intelligence. Of tech leaders, 75% are building all new products and features in the cloud moving forward, but only 8% of technologists have significant cloud-related skills and experience. Enterprises must invest as much effort in migrating their talent to the cloud as they are in migrating their applications.

    Your organization is going to need someone with hands-on technical experience and cloud security-specific knowledge to navigate the risk-reward continuum. You will be prepared not only for your current role, but also for a cutting-edge future in cloud security.
