Here is what SANS Alumni have had to say about their SANS conference training experience:

This is my first SANS experience. It's overall, first class! All classes and events have been run very professionally. You guys do it right. - Steve Passmore, LSG Sky Chefs

As usual for SANS, classes are like drinking from a fire hose, so much information to digest! It makes the courses a great value. - Brian Zangg, Applied Micro Inc.

SANS is like WD40 for rusty security analysts! - James De Rienzo, Tantus Technologies, Inc.

I love the fact that the instructors make this feel like they are personally involved in my learning and are generally available for guidance even after the class. Their skills and real world experience are invaluable. - Jennifer Jones, Roche Diagnostics

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 San Antonio this fall! We hope to see you there.
