SANS Event Safety Measures and Training Guarantee

SANS cares about bringing exemplary cybersecurity training to classrooms around the world as often as possible, but the safety of our students, instructors, facilitators, and employees is our top priority. At this time, we are implementing safety measures in our classrooms around the world to continue to run most of our training events as scheduled, but we understand that some of our students may be otherwise impacted by the novel coronavirus outbreak. For this reason, we have instituted a global SANS Training Guarantee to ensure that you can complete your training in a safe environment - learn more about our Training Guarantee or contact us for more information.
