"SANS OnDemand is the best platform that I have even seen in my life. A perfect split of windows that shows videos, course structure, ability to chat with SMEs, extra-reading material for each slide, etc. This is my 4th OnDemand course and I am sure to take more, thanks to the quality that SANS offers to its students."

- Viswanath Chirravuri, Thales

"Despite the COVID situation, the Live Online method is well-delivered and smooth. It's the next best thing to being In-Person!"

- Sean O'Sullivan Boeing Defence Australia





"The GIAC certification exam covers information in real-world terms. In my experience, this makes the exam much more relevant; even as an open-book exam it was challenging. It wasn't just about memorizing answers but also applying that information to real-life scenarios."

- Ken Hansen, GISF, Quanta
