See what these people who attended SANS 2013 had to say about their SANS Training:
I never thought I could learn so much in such short time without feeling burned out. Great job making it engaging and interesting. - Jeff Eubanks, Mainstream Engineering Corp.
Great add ins and demos. By far the best professional training I have ever received. - Reggie Hendrick, SRL
In the 5-6 days I have had at SANS, one thing has consistently impressed me: the caliber of presenters and instructors. They are excellent. This to me is one of the greatest strengths of SANS. Yes, the course content is good but the instructors make a good course or class into an outstanding one. - Jean Currie, Navy
I had a great time. SEC560 has tons of useful material and techniques. As with all SANS training I leave knowing that I can apply this as soon as I'm back at work. - Benjamin Bagby, XE.Com
