Launched in 1989 as a cooperative for information security thought leadership, it is SANS’ ongoing mission to empower cyber security professionals with the practical skills and knowledge they need to make our world a safer place. We fuel this effort with high quality training, certifications, scholarship academies, degree programs, cyber ranges, and resources to meet the needs of every cyber professional. Our data, research, and the top minds in cybersecurity collectively ensure that individuals and organizations have the actionable education and support they need.
SANS is a collaborative professional organization dedicated to creating a safer global community. To achieve this goal, we run multiple programs to draw more talent into the cybersecurity field and empower those people with the skills and knowledge needed to enter the workforce, accomplish important tasks, and lead the way.
