"Am learning a lot and also verifying my own knowledge. Well worth my time." - Dale Leschnitzer, LANL

"This was my first SANS course so I have no comparison to any other SANS class. For me the class out line was very specific to my job so it was money well spent." - Randy Mosso, ADT Security

"This course will allow me to directly apply this knowledge to incident handling of work." - Richard Clark, Tucson Electric Power
