What attendees say about their SANS training experience:

“SANS creates a one-of-a-kind learning experience providing world-class training and fascinating opportunities to network and gain new perspectives from your peers!” - Justin E., US Federal Agency

“Honestly, I don't see any room for improvement in the instructor, course, platform or TAs. I really love the Live Online platform, and the TAs are killing it! It's truly an incredible experience so far.” - Evan Carrillo, Booz Allen Hamilton

“The materials and instructors are excellent and the content is relevant to current security operations in any industry. The combination of labs and NetWars provides hands-on experience that really helps to understand the content.” - Jerry Bunn, Digital Realty

"In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, it's nothing short of amazing how SANS was able to adapt. Having a dedicated moderator and TA in the room along with the instructor is an amazing help, and it also made me feel like SANS actually cares about my training experience. One side benefit is that we can focus on the instructor while others are asking questions, so it's much less distracting!” – James Murphy, ARI
