If you like what the SANS Internet Storm Center (ISC) provides to the cyber security community, then you will love SANSFIRE! SANSFIRE 2011 is the one annual training event powered by the ISC. This years event will be held in Washington DC, July 15-24, and includes more than 25 courses and dozens of up-to-the-minute field reports from ISC handlers.Each evening, the ISC handlers share riveting talks on their most interesting experiences and newest cyber hazards. These special presentations are free to everyone who attends a course at SANSFIRE 2011.

SANSFIRE 2011 hosts world-class instructors teaching top-quality SANS courses covering penetration testing and hacker exploits, security, management, wireless, forensics, secure coding, and much more. See our Event-at-a-Glance page for the whole list of courses and links to course descriptions. We also have 11 one-and two-day courses to round out your training, which if taken with a five- or six-day course, will be available at approximately 50 percent of the normal tuition fee.

All SANS courses directly address the kinds of incidents reported by the Internet Storm Center in their daily diaries. And, it’s a SANS promise that what you learn you’ll be able to apply immediately back at the office. Last year’s SANSFIRE attendees told us:

SANSFIRE has been the best learning experience in my career as a security professional.

SANSFIRE was a great venue for learning, networking, and realizing potential future career opportunities.
– Curtis Kozielec, State of DE-DTI

I got lucky and hit the SANS lottery having Stephen Northcutt as the instructor. This is a week that I thought would drag. Maybe it was the nice hotel. Maybe it was the goodies. Most of the week was spent in class. Get the picture.
– Eric Peiffer, Defense Logistics Agency

Our conference location is the Hilton Washington & Towers. Discounted room rates of $215 S/D are available for SANS students through June21. Government per diem rooms are available with proper ID. You must call the hotel and specifically ask for this rate (1-800-HILTONS). These special SANS rates include high-speed internet in your room.

SANS training is the best there is. Conferences are always smooth running and well planned. Events are good or great, amenities are complete.
