BETHESDA, Md., Jan. 29, 2015 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- SANS Institute, the global leader in information security training, today announced its upcoming training event in Houston March 23-28 with SANS Houston 2015. Top cyber security practitioner instructors from the SANS Institute will share techniques and capabilities that can be used to create and maintain advanced cyber threat intelligence in an organization. What attendees learn will help them detect and respond to some of the most sophisticated threats targeting their organization's networks.
"With its world-renowned energy, aerospace and medical industries, Houston is sure to be on the radar for global attackers," said Johannes Ullrich, Dean of Research for the SANS Technology Institute and CTO of the SANS Internet Storm Center. "As attacks become stealthier, have a greater financial impact, and cause broad reputational damage, effective cybersecurity is more important than ever. SANS Houston brings together some of today's top cybersecurity professionals as they share the tools and techniques needed to fight back. It is a must-attend training event for security professionals that want to stay ahead of attackers."
SANS Houston will feature some of SANS' top offensive and defensive security training courses such as the SEC503: Intrusion Detection In-Depth course which provides the technical knowledge, insight, and hands-on training security professionals need to defend their network with confidence. The SEC501: Advanced Security Essentials – Enterprise Defender course will build on a solid foundation of core policies and practices to enable security teams to defend their enterprise. The FOR508: Advanced Digital Forensics and Incident Response course will help you determine when a breach occurred, what systems were compromised and affected, and how to contain and remediate the incident.
