A special discounted rate of $189 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 July 30.
Travelers to this city find that downtown Chicago is friendly and clean; 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 sculpture 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 2014, 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 Chicago 2013 alumni have to say about their experience:
"Learning about security has been very helpful for my job. SEC401 is very informative." - Linda Runyon, York Risk Service Group
"Anyone can read slides. The true value of these courses comes from the instructor's insights and war stories. That's where real learning begins." - Dan Bell, Field Glass
"Great! The resources that I learned about are priceless. So much knowledge gained in one week. Awesome." - Craig Bowden, Bowdoin College
"Hacker Techniques, Exploits & Incident Handling is an excellent topic- great instructor. The world is moving in this direction, might as well get ahead of the main stream." - Sanjeev Shah, Honeywell
