Statements from SANS alumni regarding their training experience:
“The training was invaluable to my professional growth and will surely help broaden the overall skill set of my team when it comes to threat hunting and incident response. I now have a better idea of where to look in order to more quickly identify rogue processes.” - Paul Aronhalt, Masergy Communications
“The training and instructors were top-notch, as has become our expectation from SANS. The material stays relevant every year, and the expertise and experience of the instructors brings it from textbook to reality. Our industry is stuck between two standard areas, and SANS training helps us bridge those two verticals and create a more robust and secure product offering.” - Jon Taylor, Caterpillar
