Nobody else in the industry is as comprehensive as SANS or as up-to-date and knowledgeable. If you want to learn how to do your job right, I don’t think there's any better training out there right now.

The labs were very hands-on, and being able to manually go through these exercises gives me confidence that I can do these things in the future.
