DevOps and cloud are radically changing the way that organizations design, build, deploy, and operate online systems. Leaders like Amazon, Etsy, and Netflix are able to deploy hundreds or even thousands of changes every day, continuously learning, improving, and growing - and leaving their competitors far behind. Now DevOps and the Cloud are making their way from Internet 'Unicorns' and cloud providers into enterprises.


SANS promises that you will be able to use what you learn in the classroom as soon as you return to the office.  Does this sound like the kind of training that would help you to be more effective in your job combating Cyber Crime and doing your best to provide a secure

networked environment for your organization?



SANS is pleased to announce an easy way to view all upcoming training events happening right in your community.  To view our current schedule please visit us at (
