Webcasts: Access Instructions

You will need the following to attend a Webcast or listen to an archived Webcast:

  • Valid SANS Account
  • GoToTraining™ by LogMeIn is our standard webcast platform; however, select webcasts may run on Zoom™.
  • GoToTraining™ requires Java version 6 or later. If you do not have Java installed you can download it here
  • Zoom based webcasts can be using the Zoom App. Zoom webcasts may also be run without the Zoom application using a modern web browser.

Attend the webcast using your mobile device!



**We recommend you login to the webcast page early. If you have problems accessing the webcast, please check our Frequently Asked Questions. If you are still experiencing difficulties, contact us at webcast-support@sans.org as soon as possible. This will allow us time to help you before the webcast begins.

SANS may run select webcasts using Zoom due to the size of the audience (multiple thousand). SANS has evaluated the claims around Zoom's security and have found, collectively with our national partners, Zooms response to the concerns to be appropriate.

It is our assessment that even though there were valid concerns about Zoom, the company has responded accordingly to resolve the situation. SANS also found a significant level of misinformation about the Zoom security. More information about our Zooms security assessment can be viewed in this webcast.

For webcasts using Zoom we will configure Zoom so that participants can use any modern web browser if they do not want to install the Zoom application on their systems. To use this option click the "join from your browser" on the "Your meeting should start in a few seconds..." screen.
