The fact is that the fight against cybercriminals increasingly relies on some collaboration between the good guys. Even when they work for rival organizations. This is why SANS places such importance on a community-based approach to information security. Its multitude of programs aim to develop cybersecurity talent, transcend borders, and foster a sense of unity among cybersecurity professionals.

The SANS philosophy is to empower people of all levels of seniority and experience with the skills and knowledge they need to advance in cybersecurity. Everyone must play their part to make the world safer.

None of this would mean much without SANS’ team of expert instructors. All of them excel in class, which is sort of expected of instructors. But they’re also excellent for mentoring people who want to boost their security credentials.

Importantly, they are also leading practitioners in their various fields. Each of them holds a day-to-day position in the cybersecurity industry. And instructors who are deeply grounded in real-world cyber experience are in a better position to ensure that everyone who completes SANS training can apply the skills they learned on their first day back on the job.

Community is important to SANS and the hands-on knowledge of its instructors is an essential part of that commitment. All are dedicated to the principle of sharing research, tools and analysis with other cyber professionals. Each of them aims to provide engaging and positive learning environments, teaching key elements through lectures, immersive hands-on labs and interactive discussions.

These experts enable SANS and GIAC to prepare the next generation of cybersecurity professionals.
