Here is what SANS alumni have had to say about their SANS live training experience:

"Security is a big focus for our IT organization. This face-to-face training, with other companies' experiences is a very effective way to learn." - Michael Stothers, The Boeing Company

"SEC401 doesn't assume a starting level of knowledge, but delivers all the essentials to understand how networks work before showing how to secure them." - Martyn Smith, Logically Secure Ltd.

"I never thought I could learn so much in such short time without feeling burned out. Great job making it engaging and interesting." - Jeff Eubanks, Mainstream Engineering Corp.

"In the 5-6 days I have had at SANS, one thing has consistently impressed me: the caliber of presenters and instructors. They are excellent. This to me is one of the greatest strengths of SANS. Yes, the course content is good, but the instructors make a good course or class into an outstanding one." - Jean C., Navy

With a reputation for being the most trusted source for information security training and an eagerness to help you meet your training objectives, SANS is the best choice for IT security education. Don't miss this special SANS training event in Houston in May! We hope to see you there.
