I know Ertaz has this class on his calendar for 2019, but has anyone gone through it?

    My coworker is going in October. I can ask for his thoughts when done.

    I'm bringing this back from the semi-dead since I got selected to do Work Study in Chicago for this course coming up in a few weeks. Checking if anyone has feedback.

    Woot! Can't wait for the feedback.  Btw my work cheaped out on SANS this year, and says that it won't be in the budget in the foreseeable future, so I'm looking for a new suitor.

    The topics look pretty good, I'm interested in the review as well, especially considering Capital One is fresh in most C-suite minds

    Hey. I’m based in London, UK but selected for Riyadh, Saudi. I’ve seen 545 is pretty popular and always sold out, so really glad been accepted here. Funny thing is I’ve also been accepted for 566 back home in London the following week so tempted to do both. Have my eye on 540 next year at some point.

    SANS peeps told me 545 is selling like hotcakes. They are aggressively looking to put people in their pipeline to ramp them up to teach this class. I am seriously considering signing up.
