Cyber Defense Forum & Training - Live Online

Virtual, US Central | Fri, Oct 9 - Sat, Oct 17, 2020

We've made the decision to convert this training event into a Live Online event. The Cyber Defense Forum will now take place online Friday, October 9. The one-day Forum will include live-streamed expert talks, Q&A sessions, and virtual networking opportunities.

The courses below will now take place online beginning on Monday, October 12, using software to stream live instructors to all registered students during the scheduled classroom hours (Central Time). This alternate training format will allow us to deliver the cybersecurity training you expect while keeping you, our staff, and our instructors as safe as possible.

Your registration for a Live Online course includes electronically delivered courseware, live streaming instruction by a SANS instructor, course labs, and four months of online access to course recordings.
