SANS Conference

I mentioned a few posts back that I was going to a local SANS conference.
We’re 2/3s of the way through the SANS – CISSP + S conference and its been a great experience. Because it is a prep course, by nature it avoids two of my main annoyances in training. No one is signed up for the class who doesn’t have a clue. (ISC)^2 has experience requirements associated with the CISSP so there is a lower threshold on the type of people who will be in the course.
Also because the course is about prepping for a test, there isnt’ a lot of debate and side issues. People recognize that there is (ISC)^2 world and then everything else.
Its a long day with a lot of tough material, but thus far its been very enjoyable. We return for the final two days next Thursday and Friday.
