AITP Announces Valuable Security Training Partnership with SANS Institute

Friday, April 19, 2013   (0 Comments)
Posted by: Stephen Flowers, Region 7 Director

The Association of Information Technology Professionals Board of Directors is pleased to announce that AITP has entered into a partnership to offer two different discount-priced security training programs in cooperation with the SANS Institute, the "most trusted name in information and software security training.”

These valuable benefits are offered to all AITP professional members who are employed in private businesses and organizations, and those employed by the United States' federal government.

In addition, for AITP professional and student members, associated separate SANS discount-priced programs are available for those employed or allied with K-12, college and university educational institutions, and with state, county, municipal and other local government agencies.

10% Discount for AITP Members on ALL SANS Core Training

The Association has negotiated for ALL AITP members a 10% discount on all SANS core training, both for online courses, and for live classroom, in-person training. This includes training on everything from security essentials to hacker techniques, exploits, incident handling, network penetration testing, ethical hacking, computer forensic investigations, web app penetration testing, and intrusion detection, and are all covered in depth. There are many other courses offered, both at training courses held at venues around the world, and online. See for a list of available training.

Whether a live classroom or online course, because the training is individual, the 10% discount applies only to the actual member of AITP.

AITP members must order their training online and provide a discount code at the time of registration at Please contact to request the special AITP discount code.

For more information, including an explanation of how the program works, who is eligible, how to sign up, how to receive the discount code and any other information, please contact

Large Discount on SANS "Securing the Human" Training

Companies who have AITP members can register, for a single flat highly discounted fee, up to 700 employees in the SANS "Securing the Human” program, which was produced to help organizations build and deploy an effective security awareness program.

See for a detailed explanation of this program, for a two page flyer, as well as the video at:

Visit the SANS dedicated AITP portal webpage, for details on pricing. As long as the company or organization or institution has one AITP member, then that company, organization or institution is eligible for the Securing the Human discounted pricing program.

Eligible members who wish to get started receiving these benefits right away should begin by entering through the official AITP/SANS portal page here:

Should an AITP member's company wish to purchase more than 700 user seats they may contact SANS directly at: after first signing up on the portal page above.

Regardless of how many users they want, eligible members must still register through the SANS dedicated AITP portal webpage in order for AITP to receive financial credit.

(Those involved in state and local government, and education should use the portal page initially, and then they will be directed to the special programs reserved for those classes of users.)

These security training benefits could represent thousands of dollars in direct savings to AITP members and their affiliated organizations nationwide.


As an added bonus, AITP's Board of Directors has entered into a revenue sharing agreement with SANS that is likely to bring a new stream of additional revenues to our association.

AITP Webinar to Explain this New Program:

In order to introduce AITP members to these exciting new benefits, a Webinar, held in conjunction with the monthly AITP Virtual Water Cooler meeting, is scheduled for 2 p.m. CDT on Tuesday, April 30, 2013.

The AITP Board of Directors strongly urges every member to take full advantage of this outstanding set of benefits to help protect their organization's security, while saving money, and in many cases bringing additional revenues to support our association's mission and services.
