Cyber Security Training, Certifications, Degrees and Resources

SANS’ mission is to empower cyber security professionals with the practical skills and knowledge they need to make our world a safer place.

Training Modalities

At SANS, we understand students have to fit training around their work and personal lives. That's why we've developed four unique training modalities so that you can find the delivery method that best suits your needs.

Cybersecurity Focus Areas

Effective cybersecurity operations rely on layers of offensive testing, defensive architecture and monitoring, forensics and incident response, cloud security, and leadership. Advancing your capabilities in these focus areas is our mission because it furthers your ability to protect us all. Use the training and certifications we've developed to keep your skills in any or all of these areas razor sharp.
"SANS training is like no other out there. The instructors do an AMAZING job of not only teaching the topics in an engaging manner but really firing you up more about security." - Sydney Howard, Nordstrom
