SANS Institute, the global leader in information security training, today announced the agenda for SANS San Diego 2017 taking place October 30 - November 4. SANS San Diego will feature hands-on immersion style training courses for security professionals of every level. Included among the course lineup is MGT414: SANS Training Program for CISSP® Certification which provides an accelerated review specifically designed to prepare students to successfully pass the CISSP exam.

According to SANS Instructor, Jonathan Ham (@jhamcorp), "MGT414 focuses solely on the key concepts students must understand to pass the CISSP exam. Each of the eight domains of knowledge, determined by (ISC)2 which form a critical part of the exam, will be dissected into its critical components. These components will be discussed in terms of their relationship with one another and with other areas of information security. Students will walk away with the confidence and knowledge necessary to pass this test."
