SANS Technology Institute Master of Science degree programs offer candidates an unparalleled opportunity to excel in the two aspects of security that are most important to the success of their employer and their own careers: management skills and technical mastery.

Over the next 20 years, information technology will become so central to all aspects of our lives, from recreation to warfare, that information security will rise in importance and scale. It will become a profession with more than 500,000, and perhaps as many as 1,000,000, people employed in positions in which they have significant roles in shaping the security of their employers' systems. Those people need managers, technical directors, and chief information security officers who are deeply skilled in the technology and who have excellent management skills.

If you aspire to help lead your organization's or your country's information security program and you have the qualifications, organizational backing, and personal drive to excel in these challenging degree programs, we will welcome you into the program.
