We are pleased to invite you to the Palmer House Hilton in downtown Chicago - our campus for SANS Chicago 2016 this August. Why attend? Attackers are targeting you with increasing viciousness and stealth, and it's essential you understand the tools and techniques and learn the skills needed to protect your organizations. Get the training you need from SANS - the most trusted and by far the largest source for information security training in the world.
When you attend SANS Chicago 2016, you will see the SANS promise in action - what you learn in the classroom, you will be able to use immediately upon returning to the office. Here's what some of our alumni of SANS Chicago 2015 had to say about their experience:
'The real world examples and overall knowledge and experience of the instructor helps me understand more uniformly.' - Michael Hagood, Nationwide
'This was my first SANS course, and I was extremely impressed and happy with both the course and instructor.' - James LaFalce, Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago
'This is a great course - pretty much every single topic touches in some way on what I do on the job. And the instructor makes the course fun to take as it is entertaining at times.' - Yi Li, Discover
'This is a new security problem, and the instructor does a great job pointing out potential issues' - Rostislav Fishman, IPS
'The material was presented in such a way that it made this difficult material easy to comprehend.' - Brian Rodgers, Amsted Rail
Again this year, our campus is the Palmer House Hilton Hotel. Attendees have enjoyed this wonderful old hotel that has undergone renovations to enhance the spectacular decor.
Travelers to this city find that downtown Chicago is friendly and clean; people that you meet want you to share their love of their city! A downtown hotel provides easy access to Lake Michigan in all its grandeur where you can stroll Millennium and Grant Parks to see incredible sculpture and gardens. You are close to the Art Institute of Chicago and Macy's on State Street; and you are just blocks from the Magnificent Mile, Water Tower Place, The Shops of Northbridge, and The 900 Shops. Of course, there is much, much more with the following attractions also being close to the hotel: Shedd Aquarium, Adler Planetarium and Field Museum, and all the great dining, theater, symphony, and opera that comes with a major US city.
