What attendees say about their SANS training experience:

"The best defense is a good offense. This course helped me think like an attacker, and the skills I gained will be invaluable as a developer and defender." - Brandon Evans, Asurion

"SEC504 is a great class overall that is perfect for pen testers and defenders alike. It has greatly helped me understand how attackers think, how they gather information, and how they maintain and gain control of systems." - Evan Brunk, Acuity Insurance

"SEC560 is an exceptional course for anyone looking to enhance their offensive skills. There are lots of very technical, hands-on labs that stretch your knowledge and reinforce classroom learning." - Michael Hoffman, Shell

"The content of this class is providing information that will help me expand my security toolset and understand the ways we can defend against the attacks we cover. This is very valuable experience to help me better perform my responsibilities as a cybersecurity professional." - Derek Dorman, Dayton Children's Hospital
