SANS is bringing six information security courses to SANS Phoenix 2012. SANS hands-on curriculum is loaded with practical tools and cutting-edge information from our awesome instructor lineup - all top infosec industry experts. Now is the time to improve your skills with courses that are proven to provide knowledge that you can use the day you return to work. With the average temperature in the Arizona desert being 70 degrees in February, wouldn't this be a nice winter break?

In addition to four popular courses in security essentials, securing Windows, hacker techniques, and pen testing, we are bringing our two new courses: AUD407 - this class is designed for individuals who are tasked with auditing IT systems for implementation of organizational policies and procedures, risk, and policy conformance and MGT514 - this course is designed to help with the transition from technical person to manager to leader and give you the tools to be successful as a senior IT strategic planner, policy author, and leader.
