For the third year our campus is the Palmer House Hilton Hotel. Attendees have enjoyed this wonderful 140-year-old hotel that has undergone renovations to enhance the spectacular decor. A special discounted rate of $219 S/D will be honored based on space availability. Government per diem rooms are available with proper ID; you will need to call reservations and ask for the SANS government rate. These rates include high speed Internet in your room and are only available through October 4, 2013.

Travelers to this city find that downtown Chicago is friendly, clean, and safe; and people that you meet want you to share their love of their city! A downtown hotel provides easy access to Lake Michigan in all its grandeur where you can stroll Millennium and Grant Parks to see incredible sculptures and gardens. You are close to the Art Institute of Chicago and Macy's on State Street; and you are just blocks from the Magnificent Mile, Water Tower Place, The Shops of Northbridge, and The 900 Shops. Of course there is much, much more with the following attractions also being close to the hotel: Shedd Aquarium, Adler Planetarium, and Field Museum, and all the great dining, theater, symphony, and opera that comes with a major US city.

When you attend SANS Chicago 2013, you will see the SANS promise in action - what you learn in the classroom, you will be able to use immediately upon returning to the office. Here's what some of our alumni have to say about their experience:

Sec401 is the perfect way to dive right into the very basic yet crucial parts of security. A must for anyone running a network or series of networks. - Ralph Maravola, NES Associates,
SEC408 is definitely my most favorite SANS course I have attended! Very valuable skills to correlate or validate findings. - Terrie Myerchin, DIRECTV, Inc.
Every SANS course I have taken has been world-class. This one is no different. Eric Robinson, Premera Blue Cross
