State and Local Government

Security Awareness Training for US and Canadian governments offered by SANS, in partnership with the Center for Internet Security.

The Partnership Between SANS and CIS

The SANS mission is to ensure that InfoSec practitioners in critical organizations have the skills to protect national security, while the mission of the CIS CyberMarket is to serve state, local, territorial, and tribal governments and related non-profit entities in achieving a greater cyber security posture through trusted expert guidance and cost-effective procurement. As a result of their overlapping missions, SANS and CIS have developed a partnership agreement that provides highly discounted training to constituencies who have a clear impact on national security, a large number of information security practitioners, and budget constraints that limit their access to necessary training.
