We build on the diverse knowledge and experiences within the cyber community — exchanging ideas, best practices, and bravely examining our shortcomings —all in pursuit of a singular purpose: to make the world a safer place. We can only achieve this by working together. Once again, we are excited to lead multiple trainings and presentations from top SANS instructors at this year's RSA Conference.
