SANS Online Technical Training



Your organization’s information technology staff are your first line of defense against cyber attacks. To keep your organization – and your sensitive information – safe and secure, it is crucial that your information technology employees regularly receive the most up-to-date training on innovations in cybersecurity, as well as effective methods to combat cyber criminals and their ever-evolving tactics.

To address this need, CIS is proud to partner with the SANS Institute to offer our members two of SANS's most popular, and effective, online training methods: OnDemand and vLive. These training programs offer flexible and effective options for information security professionals of all experience levels to complete SANS' top training programs from anywhere in the world. More than 30 different courses, many of which serve as ideal preparation for GIAC certifications, are available to expand your staff’s skill sets, including:

  • Cyber Defense
  • Penetration Testing
  • Incident Response & Threat Hunting
  • Management
  • Industrial Control Systems
  • Secure Coding


SANS OnDemand courses provide the flexibility to train online wherever and whenever it’s most convenient for you. With four months of access to the online course materials, including lectures, quizzes, and labs, you can master the course content on your schedule, at your own pace.


SANS vLive offers live SANS courses through an online, virtual training room. Courses are six weeks long, with content presented in the evenings twice a week – perfect for students who want extra study time between sessions. Students will have direct interactions with instructors along with subject-matter-expert support throughout training, and six months of online access to course content.

Thanks to our partnership with SANS, you can now purchase these online technical training methods through CIS CyberMarket at a dramatically discounted rate.
