NetWars - In-Depth, Hands-On InfoSec Skills

What is NetWars?

SANS NetWars is a hands-on, interactive learning environment that enables information security professionals to develop and master the skills they need to excel in their field. In SANS award-winning courses, attendees consistently rate our hands-on exercises as the most valuable part of the course. With NetWars, we have really raised the ante, as participants learn while working through various challenge levels, all hands-on, with a focus on skills information security professionals can use in their jobs every day.

NetWars comes in two forms:

Tournament and Continuous
NetWars Tournament runs over an intense two-to-three day period, at a conference or hosted onsite. Many enterprises, government agencies, and military bases are using NetWars onsites to help identify skilled personnel and as part of extensive hands-on training.
NetWars Continuous allows participants to build their skills on their own time over a four-month period working from their office or home across the Internet. Also, NetWars Continuous supports a unique Automated Hint System that turns dead ends into learning opportunities.
