Discount on SANS Forensics Course

Sunday, April 26th, 2009

You can receive a 10% discount on the @Home version of the SANS Security 508: Computer Forensics, Investigation, and Response course in June with the discount code: 508EW. You can find details about this course and the @Home format on the SANS site.

I took a course in this format last fall and really enjoyed the flexibility. It is a great compromise between the typical 6 day conference format, with all the travel and impact on your work schedule, and the On Demand format, that doesn’t provide the live interaction with the instructor. You can attend the class from anywhere and still benefit from the live interaction with the most experienced instructors.

If you want to attend the full version of the course, the Massachusetts Attorney General’s Office is hosting the same course in person. A significant discount of the regular price of over $4,000 will be applied for law enforcement. Discounts are applied at the time of registration. The course will be held at the University of Massachusetts, Boston campus between June 22 and June 27, 2009. Information related to the course can be found here:
