Virtual, US Mountain | Mon, May 11 - Sat, May 16, 2020

In response to the escalation of the COVID-19 pandemic, we've made the decision to convert this training event into a Live Online event.

The courses below will take place online, using virtual software to stream live instructors to all registered students during the scheduled classroom hours. (Mountain Time) This alternate training format will allow us to deliver the cybersecurity training you expect while keeping you, our staff, and our instructors as safe as possible.
