Hands On Learning

When students have completed SANS Management training they will be able to speak the same language as security, systems and administrator personnel. And, they'll be able to do so with confidence and authority.

Along with equipping managers to supervise their products' security components, SANS training can help managers guide their organisation's security awareness programme.

SANS places hands-on skills at the heart of all its training courses. Students learn security management's latest theories, and spend time putting those theories into practice.

SANS places a high value on fostering and feeding students' hands-on skills. We do so because, should an organisation face a cyber attack, having defenders who have mastered responses and counter measures is essential.

Built To Be Remembered

SANS Instructors bring a wealth of hard earned, real-world experience into the classroom. They will, for example, use their insight into headline-grabbing cyber attacks to add context to the theories they're exploring.

SANS textbooks are written and created in tandem with the course they support. The books follow the same flow, detail, and lab exercises. They add extra technical detail to the Instructor's lectures.

SANS updates its course textbooks regularly to ensure all of our training content is focussed on defending against criminals' latest tactics and technologies.

Along with printed courseware - that includes cheat sheets and posters - SANS provides students with software based resources.

These include copies of the virtualised lab exercises that form the foundation of classwork. Students leave equipped with copies of any software tools that have been explored.

SANS takes great pride in its free Resources it provides to the management community, and the quality of the courseware it gives to all enrolled students.
