SANS Technology Institute Open House
- Stephen Northcutt
- Thursday, August 8th, 7:15pm - 8:15pm
SANS Technology Institute Master of Science degree programs offer candidates an unparalleled opportunity to excel in the two aspects of security that are most important to the success of their employer and their own careers: management skills and technical mastery.
Over the next 20 years, information technology will become so central to all aspects of our lives, from recreation to warfare, that information security will rise in importance and scale. It will become a profession with more than 500,000, and perhaps as many as 1,000,000, people employed in positions in which they have significant roles in shaping the security of their employers' systems. Those people need managers, technical directors, and chief information security officers who are deeply skilled in the technology and who have excellent management skills.
If you aspire to help lead your organization's or your country's information security program and you have the qualifications, organizational backing, and personal drive to excel in these challenging degree programs, we will welcome you into the program.
The following bonus sessions are open to all paid attendees at no additional cost. There are many different types of events that fall into these categories:
- SANS@Night: Evening presentations given after day courses have ended. This category includes Keynotes.
- Special Events: SANS-hosted events and other non-technical recreational offerings. This category includes, but is not limited to, Receptions and Information Tables.
- Vendor: Events hosted by external vendor exhibitors.
- Lunch & Learn: Short presentations given during the lunch break.
