Here's what SANS alumni have said about the value of SANS training:

"It covers all areas of basic security. Not only were the text books great, doing the labs helped apply what we learned." - Michael Hagen, VSACISAP Korea

"It helps me get a better sense of knowing if I am doing things correctly. It also has provided some useful tools-applications already." - Daniel Samuel, UNDP

"This course has given me another way to look at security and how we use tools to look at many things in different ways." - Kim Maloney, Oregon Dept. of Transportation

"Good pace, very interactive; has great world experiences, ability to fill in gaps, and stay completely engaged. Has been better than I ever expected so far." - Matt Shores, IMPD

"Extremely engaging course that highlights new ways of looking into incident response." - Ryan Guest, Southern Company
