BETHESDA, Md., Dec. 6, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- SANS Institute, the global leader in information security training, today announced Clifford Stoll will deliver the keynote address at the SANS Cyber Threat Intelligence (CTI) Summit & Training taking place January 25 - February 1 in Arlington, Virginia.
Clifford Stoll gained worldwide attention as a cyberspace sleuth when he wrote his bestselling book, The Cuckoo's Egg: Tracking a Spy through the Maze of Computer Espionage, the page-turning true story of how he caught a ring of hackers who stole secrets from military computer systems and sold them to the KGB. The Cuckoo's Egg inspired a whole category of books on capturing computer criminals. Stoll is deemed a leading expert on computer security and has given talks for both the CIA and the National Security Agency, as well as the U.S. Senate.
According to Robert M. Lee, CTI Summit Advisory Board member and course author of SANS FOR578: Cyber Threat Intelligence, "Clifford Stoll's classic book, The Cuckoo's Egg, has inspired so many of us in cyber threat intelligence and digital forensics to dig just a little deeper and be just a little better. We continue to be the lucky beneficiaries of the foundation he laid for our field of inquiry, and having him as the keynote speaker for the Cyber Threat Intelligence Summit is both an honor and a thrill."
The Cyber Threat Intelligence Summit is a two-day event that brings together some of the industry's top names in cybersecurity. The goal of the summit is to help organizations build effective cyber threat intelligence analysis capabilities. The summit is held in conjunction with an extensive six-day training event that offers courses on digital forensics and incident response.
