Hear what your peers had to say about their SANS Training:

"Within the national lab environment it's of paramount importance that we can respond quickly to -ur-, compromises, or other events. This course (MGT535) helps us focus on the important elements of incident response." - Eric Burgan, Idaho National Lab

"SEC 401 is a great way to fill in the gaps of knowledge that I haven't been exposed to in my years as an IT professional. It provides a great vantage point from which I can see the next things I need to address for myself and for my company's security posture." - Frank Brune, Enterprise Holdings

"Great attention to detail (SEC560) and real-life application anecdotes that give you the -'so what!'- in addition to the 'what.'" - Chris Tyo, Ashland Inc

"MGT414 - Learning to look at network security from a more proactive defense perspective." - Randall McNeely, HNI Corporation

"I was worried this class (SEC501) would overlap SEC401. It takes everything I learned in SEC401 and takes it to the next level." - Bryan Chou, Murphy, USA

"This course (MGT512) is a huge help in bridging the gap from being a security practitioner to a security orchestrator. This is one of the most valuable courses Ive taken with SANS, and thats speaking volumes." - John Madick, Epiq Systems
