SANS is offering fully certified cybersecurity training – without leaving your bunker

Isolation is the perfect time to learn new skills

Promo Amid this planet's ongoing pandemic and stay-at-home measures, if you’re keen to repurpose all that time previously spent commuting, attending conferences, and so on, why not take a look at the SANS Institute’s Online Cybersecurity Training.

SANS has been researching and educating the cybersecurity industry since 1989, building its fully GIAC-certified training courses around in-person events held worldwide. Over the past 15 years, a whopping 40 courses have been made available online, featuring top-class instructors from across the industry. This archive amounts to several months of tuition and materials, and is quite simply the highest quality insight and information of its kind available anywhere in the world today.

With subjects ranging from deep dives into cloud security architecture to wireless penetration testing, and even slightly wilder areas, such as good cybersecurity writing, these online courses are an an ocean of high-quality education – and they tend to work out cheaper than travelling to in-person, multi-day sessions.

Free remote workforce essentials kit

As social distancing bumps online training into the foreground, together with remote working for many organisations, SANS Security Awareness has created a Work From Home Deployment Kit designed to ensure that life goes on as normal and safely. The kit contains everything you need to quickly train and secure your remote workforce with essential resources and training materials. This is a combination of public resources and paid training materials, which SANS is releasing for free.

SANS Online Cybersecurity Training is recommended by 94 per cent of its students, and every single one of Fortune’s Top 30 companies have used it on some level.

Anyway, don’t just take our word for it. Founder of Counter Hack Ed Skoudis, and SANS curriculum lead Rob Lee, have put together a webcast to tell you themselves. Filling you in on the pathways and topics followed online by tens of thousands of students over the past decade and a half, the Understanding SANS CyberCast will show you how learning online with SANS is So Much More Than Live Virtual Training.
