The labs are giving me a chance to see the course content first hand and interact with it. It's doing a good job of letting me play with it and really seeing how the tools and methodologies work.

The labs were very hands-on, and being able to manually go through these exercises gives me confidence that I can do these things in the future.

Everything from the instructor to the platform to the labs & materials were great. It all fit together and made this Live Online learning process go smooth. GoToTraining & Slack worked great! I wouldn’t change a thing.

The content is useful and I was able to tie the content back to my day-to-day tasks. The case studies allowed us to brainstorm and really think about how to respond in real-life scenarios.

Nobody else in the industry is as comprehensive as SANS or as up-to-date and knowledgeable. If you want to learn how to do your job right, I don’t think there's any better training out there right now.
