Baltimore Fall 2020 - Live Online

Virtual, US Eastern | Tue, Sep 8 - Sun, Sep 13, 2020

Out of an abundance of caution, and in response to the escalation of the COVID-19 pandemic, we've made the decision to convert this training event into a Live Online only event.

The courses below will take place online, using virtual software to stream live instructors to all registered students during the scheduled classroom hours (US Eastern Time). This training format will allow us to deliver the cybersecurity training you expect while keeping you, our staff, and our instructors as safe as possible. Learn more about Live Online here. If you would prefer to train In-Person during a different event, please see options here.

Core NetWars Tournament will be virtual during this event. As a SANS paid course registrant, you will receive an email invitation the week of the event detailing how to reserve your spot and join online. You will need to follow the steps in the email to join the tournament. We'll see you online!
