Until recently, the opportunity to have a celebrity attend an event, attach themselves to a name-brand or endorse a certain product or idea was untouchable. The thought of paying a person to promote a product was seen as something only Fortune 500 companies could afford. Social media has changed all that with brands and businesses utilizing celebrity influencers to connect directly with their demographics and increase sales and profits.

Here's what SANS Forensic course alumni have said about the value of SANS training: "FOR408 provides more knowledge and skill for my job as a forensics examiner." - William Lam, SVRCFL "Rob's anecdotes add to overall class time but are funny and provide a welcome 5 minute respite from the material so you have a chance to let your brain relax!" - Lucas Burke, Villanova University "This FOR508 training is valuable to me because it goes over the same tactics that the attackers use. The labs are also excellent." - Victor Pineiro, HP "All manuals should be written like those used in FOR526. Not only do you see the answers, but also now how you got there, which makes them very useful." - Barry Friedman, NY Police Some of our courses offered at SANS Monterey 2014 are associated with a GIAC Certification.
