We invite you to SANS Austin 2014 starting in late April. You will find security and forensics courses taught by real-world practitioners who are the best at ensuring you not only learn the material, but that you can apply it immediately when you return to the office.

Available Courses:
SEC503: Intrusion Detection In-Depth - Mike Poor
SEC401: Security Essentials Bootcamp Style - Dr. Eric Cole
SEC504: Hacker Techniques, Exploits & Incident Handling - Bryce Galbraith
SEC566: Implementing and Auditing the Twenty Critical Security Controls - In-Depth - Kevin Fiscus

Most of our courses are associated with a GIAC Certification that will set you apart and gain you the respect of your boss and your peers.

Top 3 Reasons to Earn Your GIAC Certification:

- Managers use certifications to ensure job candidates possess in-depth technical skills
- GIAC Certifications help IT Security professionals earn promotions and raises faster
- The process of preparing for a GIAC certification helps you to learn more detailed technical subject matter

'The GIAC certification has enabled me to take the next step in my Information Security career. It has allowed me to prove that my value was more than just that of a security-minded Sys Admin.' - J. Klein, Enterprise Information System, Cedars-Sinai Medical Center

Some of our courses can also be used as credit for two possible master's degrees from the SANS Technology Institute (STI). This accredited program offers a Master of Science Degree in Information Security Engineering (MSISE) or Master of Science Degree in Information Security Management (MSISM), both of which were designed specifically to develop the technically proficient cybersecurity leaders so desperately needed today by government and commercial organizations.
