    "Extraordinarily valuable material and a wonderful teacher. Few network, system or security administrators can do their jobs effectively without the knowledge Ed teaches on this CD. Ed is one of the 20 best security teachers in the world. How do I know? Because SANS has had more than 220 people try out to be teachers and only 20 have been accepted on the faculty. We actually guarantee that our faculty are the best teachers of their subjects in the United States. Ed is one of SANS' most highly rated teachers. We hope you'll come learn from him in live courses held all over the world, and learn from some of the other wonderful teachers at SANS, as well. And if you cannot travel to SANS programs, they are offered on line, too. See www.sans.org for details." Alan Paller, SANS
