BETHESDA, Md., Sept. 27, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- SANS Institute, the global leader in cyber security training, today announced the agenda of SANS Santa Monica 2018 (#SANSSantaMonica) taking place December 3-8 in California. The event features hands-on immersion style training courses covering a variety of topics including cyber defense, ethical hacking, penetration testing, and security management. Bonus evening talks on today's most complex cyber security issues will round out the agenda.
According to SANS Principal Instructor Kevin Fiscus (@kevinbfiscus), "The majority of organizations discover they have been compromised via notification by a third party. Not only is this bad, it is a bit surprising as we should have the advantage when hackers enter 'our house'. During my OODA Security talk I will discuss simple and cost effective ways to increase our advantage by detecting attackers more quickly and responding to those attacks more effectively."
In addition to his evening talk, Fiscus will teach the SEC560: Network Penetration Testing and Ethical Hacking course. This course will prepare security professionals to conduct a full-scale, high-value penetration test which they will do at the conclusion of the course.
SANS Santa Monica offers courses for security professionals at every level. Those new to cyber security will benefit from the SEC401: Security Essentials Bootcamp Style course. More seasoned security professionals will benefit from such courses as DEV540: Secure DevOps and Cloud Application Security and SEC504: Hacker Tools, Techniques, Exploits, and Incident Handling.
