The SANS Institute (SANS) was established in 1989 as a cooperative research and education organization.
SANS lists a ton of events on our directory and we’re delighted that they do because they offer some fantastic training events worldwide.
Their programs now reach more than 160,000 Cybersecurity professionals working in a variety of roles from security from auditors to network administrators to CISO’s. Mostly their courses are targeted towards senior management.
SANS is very likely, we believe, the largest source for information security training and security certifications.
Of interest, the organization also supports the entire InfoSec ecosystem through its “Internet Strom Center” which can be considered as being an “early warning system”
Whilst the SANS events that we list in our conference directory are not “traditional InfoSec conferences” we still list them because we feel that they add a ton of value to our directory.
