BETHESDA, Md., June 1, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- SANS Institute, the global leader in information security training, today announced the agenda for SANSFIRE 2017 taking place in Washington, D.C. July 22 - 29. SANSFIRE 2017 will feature more than 45 hands-on, immersion-style security training courses. Seven new and newly updated courses have been added to the agenda covering such topics as security, incident response and digital forensics, developer and security management.
According to Lenny Zeltser, instructor of the newly updated FOR610: Reverse-Engineering Malware: Malware Analysis Tools and Techniques course, "This is an especially exciting time to take FOR610, given the extended revisions that my authors and I have introduced into the materials. Learning from the years of teaching malware analysis, we've streamlined the flow of explanation to ensure that the course continues to deliver on the promise to be the on-ramp for security professionals into the world of reversing malicious software. We've also refreshed the real-world malware samples that we use as a way of demonstrating malware analysis techniques to provide practical, up-to-date techniques for examining malware. Moreover, we brought in some new tools into the course, most notably shifting dynamic code analysis methods to the increasingly-popular x64dbg debugger."
