The SANS Technology Institute prepares the next generation of security leaders for what they will face in a rapidly changing industry. As cyber attacks increase in volume and complexity, and organizations scramble to keep pace, the career path for cybersecurity professionals is being transformed. Leading an organization’s security efforts now requires more than technical competence. Deep technical knowledge must be paired with the skills to lead people, mobilize resources, and communicate across the organization.
Our master’s degree programs provide high-potential cybersecurity professionals with the combination of cutting-edge knowledge and leadership skills that take careers to the highest levels. Graduate certificate programs offer a shorter, technically focused set of courses that sharpen your skills and keep your knowledge current.
The SANS Technology Institute is the only graduate program focused solely on cybersecurity. Our programs transform the world’s best cybersecurity training and certifications into a comprehensive, rigorous, graduate education experience.
Students attend courses online and at week-long intensive learning events in Denver and around the country. Sign up for an online information session on our website at www.sans.edu/5280.
