Mission and Vision

Mission Statement

The SANS Technology Institute develops leaders to strengthen enterprise and global information security. STI educates managers and engineers in information security practices and techniques, attracts top scholar-practitioners as faculty, and engages both students and faculty in real-world applied research.

Vision Statement

The SANS Technology Institute aspires to be the preeminent graduate institution translating contemporary information security practice and scholarship into effective educational experiences. Our graduates will be highly valued because they design state-of-the-art, enterprise-level cyber defenses, champion the adoption of those defenses, and manage their implementation and ongoing operation.

Institutional Goals

In so doing, STI will:

  1. Enable private and public sector enterprises of the United States and its allies to preserve social order and protect their economic rights and military capabilities in the face of cyber attacks;
  2. Provide the national defense establishment, critical industries, businesses and government agencies with information security engineers and managers who have the most current and critical knowledge and skills needed to respond effectively to the evolving cyber attack landscape; and,
  3. Perform leading-edge research that continually identifies current best practice and enhances the state of the art in the practice of information security.
