What Our Students Say

Given the current situation, I really feel SANS is taking care of its customers. You can see and feel that SANS went through a lot of effort to make sure we feel safe. Together with the hotel, all the right measures have been taken, and they make sure everything is always clean. On top of that, I really like the smaller class size because it's improving the overall interaction with the instructor.Tim Tessnow

"Live Online is executed flawlessly. Having the ability to go back and look at the recordings nightly for anything I missed when the inevitable work distraction happens is invaluable.”- James Bacon, Redlegg

“The real value of this training lies at the intersection of quality content and delivery by a subject-matter expert actively working in the field, making it incredibly relevant and immediately applicable to my job.” - P. Watson, Microsoft Corp.

Spotlight Course:

All SANS courses are world-class cyber security courses, but with every event we like to choose a spotlight course and ask the instructors to give a bit more insight into what you can expect. View the video below to see SANS Certified Instructor Mick Douglas tell us all you need to know about the SEC555: SIEM with Tactical Analytics class.

SEC555 is designed to provide individuals training, methods, and processes for enhancing existing logging solutions. This class will also provide the understanding of the when, what, and why behind the logs. This is a lab heavy course that utilizes SOF-ELK, a SANS sponsored free SIEM solution, to train hands on experience and provide the mindset for large scale data analysis.

Please note: SANS is continuously monitoring the ongoing developments around COVID-19, therefore if deemed necessary for safety reasons, the delivery format of this event may change.

Depending on local measures, SANS may choose to run the event:

- In-Person as originally planned

- In-Person for those students able to travel, and virtually through our Live Online platform for those who are not able to travel

- Completely virtual using our Live Online platform

- In-Person for those students able to travel, and virtually through our Live Online platform for those who are not able to travel or with the instructor streamed live online in the event the instructor cannot travel
