BETHESDA, Md., Dec. 6, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- SANS Institute, the global leader in information security training, today announced the agenda for SANS Scottsdale 2018 taking place February 5 – 10 in Arizona. The event offers cutting-edge information security knowledge and skills to security professionals at every level. Included among the course offerings is the newly updated SEC501: Advanced Security Essentials - Enterprise Defender course.
According to SANS Senior Instructor, Paul A. Henry (@phenrycissp), "The updated version of SEC501 goes beyond a simple update to meet the demands of current threats to the enterprise environment. The new course dramatically expands coverage of many areas including but not limited to: security benchmarks, honeypots and honeyports, webapp scanning, Metasploit and pivoting, handling encrypted traffic, use of Security Onion to detect malicious activity, in-depth forensics coverage including e-discovery support, and a new malware analysis section with coverage on tools such as IDA, PeStudio, ILSpy, Process Hacker, Process Monitor, NoFuserEx, etc. The value of the update in SEC501 is made even clearer for those students that also attend my @Night Session on Evolving Threats as they will see first-hand the tie in of the new course material and how it meets the demands of the current threat environment."
