As an outsider, you never get to learn and understand how some pen testing companies work, but this course (SEC560) peels back those covers! - Moses Hernandez, Broward Health

SANS training is well-known for being relevant and pragmatic. All SANS instructors are industry leaders and experts who understand the challenges you face on a daily basis. Their real-world experience increases the practical value of the course material.

SANS Vancouver 2008 features these top-rated courses, and more:

Sporting my favorites: Chinatown, Jericho Beach, Lions, Dog Mountain, and a quick trip to Granville Island; Vancouver is busting out in natural beauty -- a "must see!" Think about staying an extra day or two, if you are from out of town. If you can't take extra time, the seaplane tour is a blast.

Classes will be held at the Sheraton Vancouver Wall Centre, convenient to the boutiques of Robson Street and Yaletown and the business and financial districts. Step outside and into the celebrated sites of the city. Take a Sea Wall Walking Tour, a stroll through Stanley Park, or see the Vancouver Art Gallery - just around the block. A special discount rate of $179 CAD S/D will be honored based on space availability. This rate includes high-speed Internet in your room. This discount is only available through October 26, 2008, so take advantage of this special offer and make your reservations today!

As a manager I seldom get an opportunity to use technologies. This course (SEC504) has given me an opportunity to get a tremendous amount of information in 6 days and have a lot of fun. I was always aware of the hacker attacks, but I now know how they are done, how widespread they are, and how to try to protect my environment. - Barbara Medeiros, One Beacon

SANS is so in-depth, has knowledgeable instructors, and provided an ideal environment for taking in up-to-date information and techniques! - Trent Hunt, DND

SANS excels at technical security training that balances theory and hands-on work. I've learned and improved skills that are immediately valuable to my job! - Chris Calvert, TELUS

How many days of excellence must we endure?! - Robert Wanger, TransUnion
