Seats for Amsterdam are selling fast, and we are expecting another sell out in Amsterdam. So don't miss your place, register now

If you register and pay before April 13th, you will save EUR 150 off the tuition fee. So don't wait any longer, make sure you have your place booked and save some money at the same time.

SANS Secure Europe will be taking place at the Radisson Blu Amsterdam, right in the centre of this fantastic city, so check our location page,, to see how you can get the best rates available at the event hotel.

Next week on Tuesday, 5th of April, sees the start of our SANS Secure Europe Webcast series with "Evolving VoIP Threats," taught by Paul Henry

– 3:00 p.m. Central European Time.

VoIP is thriving in an otherwise down economy:

1. VoIP implementations are growing driven by cost savings 2. Cost is typically the only consideration in the implementation of VoIP – it is all about saving money 3. Security if considered at all is clearly an afterthought 4. Too many still dismiss VoIP threats as theoretical

VoIP can allow significant costs savings while not sacrificing an organizations security. Recognizing the threats and implementing the compensating and technical controls can make all the difference in a successful VoIP implementation.

Further Webcasts involving the instructors in Amsterdam will take place over the coming weeks; further details will be coming soon.

So make sure you are part of what is going to be a great training experience, and we'll see you in Amsterdam.
