Meet Ned Baltagi

Ned Baltagi is the Managing Director for the Middle East, Turkey & Africa for SANS Institute.

Ned states: "The threat landscape continues to evolve following the onset of the pandemic, the rise of hybrid working environments, and the increasing use of technology to boost productivity and business performance. As a result, it’s vital that businesses, whether they are governmental entities or enterprises, take steps to protect their staff, data, and infrastructure by continually training their cybersecurity professionals, so they can detect threats and prevent cyber-attacks."

GIAC Security

Skills Validation – GIAC Certifications

Many of the SANS courses align to Global Information Assurance Certification (GIAC) examinations. The GIAC validates the skills of information security professionals, proving that those certified have the deep skills and technical knowledge necessary to work in key areas of cybersecurity.

What Do Students Say About Their SANS Training Experience?

I really had a great time doing SEC660. Brandon McCrillis is an amazing teacher and the learning materials and exercises were great. A nice add-on that I didn't expect was the two evenings of Netwars.

I really enjoyed being able to view and review the video. The OnDemand classes are great. This course works very well with my schedule and allows me to learn at my own pace.
Rob Strawley
Having an SME instructor with tons of real-world experience makes the course material easy to digest, and the Live Online platform is the best platform I've experienced!

I love OnDemand. My employer doesn't always have the funds available to send me to a live course and it has tons of material to digest, so being able to go at my own pace really helped."

The best part of SANS training is the absolute knowledge of the instructors. They bring real-world examples to the forefront and have their thumb on the pulse of current tactics used by attackers.
